Ministry of Defence Police Patrols stood down in Kent

Patrols by Ministry of Defence police officers in Kent, which started when the national threat level was raised to critical last week, have been stood down.


Work to keep Kent communities safe with highly visible firearms officers patrolling key locations will continue, in addition to the usual local policing patrols across the county.

The national threat level was reduced back to ‘Severe’ on Saturday 27 May which means an attack in the UK is ‘highly likely’.

While there continues to be no specific intelligence to suggest the communities of Kent are at risk, the public needs to remain alert, but not be alarmed.

Anyone who witnesses anything suspicious should report it to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline 0800 780321.
