BROMLEY police officers are making the public aware of how they can tackle terrorism.

The London-wide scheme, known as Operation Penna, will involve high visibility patrols around town centres, as well as briefings to businesses explaining current threats and ways of protection.

The activity is coordinated by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Protective Security Command, in partnership with officers, and is taking place between November 26 and December 7.

Bromley police's borough commander Steph Roberts said: “Although the threat from terrorism has not increased, it remains real and serious. 

“Everyone has a role to play in keeping London safe from terrorism and this operation sees specialist officers working closely with neighbourhood officers and communities, which is vital.

“We encourage the residents to remain vigilant and alert and to report anything suspicious to police."
