Counter Terrorism Security Advisor - CTSA



Durham Constabulary, together with other 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 on-going national counter terrorism strategy, has dedicated Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSAs) who are coordinated, trained and tasked by the National
Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), a specialist police organisation co-located with the Security Service in the National Security Advice Centre (NSAC).

The primary role of these advisers 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 Durham Constabulary 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 protect those around you.’
For non-urgent crime prevention advice, businesses can contact their local Durham Constabulary Crime Reduction Officer, but if you feel that your company could benefit from Counter Terrorism security advice, you can write to the following address:
Counter Terrorism Security Adviser
North East Counter Terrorism Unit
The CTSA’s would also like to remind you that if you consider anything to be suspicious or connected with Terrorism to contact Durham Constabulary on 101 or the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321. If it is an emergency remember to dial 999.
