MOD Police To Help Patrol Kent
Kent Police has announced Ministry of Defence Police officers will be supporting officers in the county as part of on-going work to keep the public and Kent safe.
It follows the attack in Manchester on Monday (22 May) and the decision to increase the national threat level to ‘critical’.
Kent Police is liaising with the Home Office to regularly assess the national threat levels and what that means for our county.
Highly-visible firearms officers are already patrolling key locations in Kent as part of our current deployment and as a result of this on-going work, additional police officer patrols have been arranged.
From today (26 May), this will also include officers from the Ministry of Defence Police who will support their armed Kent colleagues.
MOD police officers will patrol key locations to provide additional protective security and will be under the command and control of Kent Police.
The national threat level remains at ‘critical’ and members of the public are asked to remain alert, but not alarmed.
Anyone who witnesses anything suspicious should report it to the Anti Terrorist Hotline 0800 789 321.
