The National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), on behalf of the Association of Chief Police Officers, Terrorism and Allied Matters (ACPO TAM), works in partnership with the Security Service to reduce the impact of terrorism in the United Kingdom.

In order to advise places of worship on counter-terrorism protective security the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) have produced a guide intended to give protective security advice to those who are responsible for security in places of worship. Whilst it concentrates on measures to counter-terrorism, these will also work against other threats such as criminal damage, theft, burglary and arson, which remain the greatest threats.

Many places of worship may find it difficult to consider that they could be at risk. However, it is possible that your place of worship could be the target of a terrorist incident because of the nature of the place of worship, or the number of people who congregate in it, or due to special events, often with high profile individuals attending. CCTV can help clarify whether a security alert is real and is often vital in post incident investigation.
