Terrorism is the use or threat of action designed to Influence the Government of any Country or intimidate the Public or a section of the Public for the purposes of furthering a political, ideological, racial or religious cause.
A terrorist attack is unlikely. However we should not be complacent.
The risk of an attack from a lone individual or a group of individuals involved in terrorism still exists. Some attacks are easier to carry out if the terrorist is assisted by an ‘insider’ or by someone with specialist knowledge or access.
Police and partners work together to protect our communities and keep them safe through the national Counter Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST).
The aim of CONTEST it to reduce the risk from terrorism and domestic extremism so that everybody in Jersey can go about their everyday lives freely and with confidence.

Firearms and weapons attacks are rare in the UK. The ‘STAY SAFE’ principles tell you some simple actions to consider at an incident and the information that armed officers may need in the event of a weapons or firearm attack:
Escape if you can
Consider the safest options
Is there a safe route? RUN if not HIDE
Can you get there without exposing yourself to greater danger?
Insist others leave with you
Leave belongings behind
If you cannot RUN, HIDE
Find cover from gunfire
If you can see the attacker, they may be able to see you
Cover from view does not mean you are safe, bullets go through glass, brick, wood and metal
Find cover from gunfire e.g. substantial brickwork / heavy reinforced walls
Be aware of your exits
Try not to get trapped
Be quiet, silence your phone and turn off vibrate
Lock / barricade yourself in
Move away from the door
