Message from Ch Supt Adam Streets following the New Zealand terrorist attacksPublished Friday, 15th March 2019
A message from Chief Superintendent Adam Streets, Head of Local Policing Directorate, Leicestershire Police, following the terrorist attacks in New Zealand:
I was deeply saddened to wake up this morning to the devastating news that many people have lost their lives in the horrific attacks in New Zealand.
Such acts seek to divide and erode our communities and we must stand together and unite as one.
Please be assured that there is currently no information or intelligence to suggest that the UK threat level is likely to change.
I have today asked that our local officers provide additional visible reassurance within your communities and I would urge you to speak to them or contact your local neighbourhood teams if you have any local concerns. Whilst I would always ask you to remain vigilant I must reiterate that an increased police presence is not in response to an anticipated increased threat locally.
As the Head of the Local Policing Directorate and as a son, father and husband my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and all those affected by this appalling attack.
Ch Supt Adam Streets
Head of Local Policing Directorate
