“Prevent Duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.” Prevent was an initiative that was first introduced in the UK in 2003 and it’s scope was broadened in 2011. It’s aim is to identify those who could be vulnerable to being radicalised and intervene before they become involved with terrorism or extremism.
Intelligence indicates that further terrorist attacks in our country are ‘highly likely’. Experience tells us that the threat comes not just from foreign nationals, but from terrorists born and bred in Britain. It is therefore vital that our counter-terrorism strategy contains a plan to prevent radicalisation and stop would-be terrorists from committing mass murder.
The Prevent Duty strategy, published by the Government is part of the overall counter-terrorism strategy. This course
starts with an overview of the Government’s Prevent strategy, and then looks at some of the reasons people become extremists. It goes on to cover the objectives of the Prevent strategy, how to base your actions on a risk based approach and what to do if you are concerned about suspicious activity.
Prevent Duty comes under the remit of the Home Office and your can access current legislation under the Revised Prevent Duty Guidance: for England and Wales
