The government’s national counter terrorism strategy is known as CONTEST.

West Midlands Police runs a dedicated operation by the same name, coordinating the force’s counter terrorism activity in the region.

Our approach is multi-focused and includes elements to prevent terrorist acts, measures to ensure offenders are identified and prosecuted, training and information sharing to minimise the possibility of terrorists acts taking place at all, and pro-active engagement with the community to prevent vulnerable individuals being recruited by violent extremists.
