New ACT NOW and PREVENT Workshops in Lincoln

Would you like to know what kind of decisions police officers have to make in the event of a terrorism incident? ACT NOW is a free, interactive community counter terrorism exercise giving you the chance to do just that. Designed to be a lively and informative discussion, the initiative has proved popular and informative, with communities finding the experience exciting, rewarding and challenging.

Thrust into the fictitious town of Sandford, you’ll be faced with a situation where a terrorist incident is about to, or has taken place. Decisions you take will shape the way the incident is investigated: you deal with the community members, the media and the families of those who may be arrested along the way.

Taking part will give you an insight into the kinds of decisions the police have to make in extreme situations and will ultimately give you a better understanding of counter terrorism procedures.

Two free events are taking place:

7 February 2017, 1.30pm-4pm at Ruston Marconi Sports Centre

8 March 2017, 10am- 1pm at Bud Robinson (Bracebridge) Community Centre
