Counter Terrorism Security Advisors

Information on Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSAs)

Dorset Police, together with police forces throughout the United Kingdom, is better trained and equipped than ever before to combat the threat of International and Domestic terrorism. The Force, as part of the ongoing national counter terrorism strategy, has dedicated Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSAs) who are coordinated, trained and tasked by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), a police unit co-located with the Centre for the Protection of the National Infrastructure (CPNI).

The primary role of these advisors is to provide protective and counter terrorism security advice to support businesses. The advice available takes into account both conventional and non-conventional terrorist techniques and the aim is to reduce vulnerability to terrorist threats. The CTSAs work closely with other police forces throughout the country, government departments and other agencies.

The public can play a key role in supporting the police. By remaining vigilant, being security minded and having good security measures in place, you can protect your business against crime and make the work of terrorists more difficult. A small investment in security measures greatly enhances the feeling of security on behalf of everyone and helps to protect those around you.

For non urgent crime prevention advice, businesses can contact their local Police Crime Reduction Officer, but if you feel that your company could benefit from counter terrorism security advice, please contact us using our online form below or write to the following address:
