COUNTER TERRORISM LOCAL PROFILES
The Counter Terrorism Local Profile (CTLP) is a product which drives the sharing of two-way information and enables police and partners to understand and identify at a local level the threat from all forms of violent extremism in our communities.The CTLP aims to identify where violent extremist activity is or has the greatest potential of occurring and provide suggested recommendations to address any risk.
he Government’s Prevent strategy aims to help build stronger, safer communities who feel empowered to reject violent extremism in all its forms.
The nature of the threat can vary greatly from place to place. This means that our Prevent response should be community based, specific and relevant to local needs and circumstances. Local Authorities, in conjunction with police, are taking the lead, working closely with other voluntary and statutory sector partners to help strengthen communities to deliver the Prevent agenda. Effective information sharing, with a strict protocol, is key to the success of local partnerships, to ensure that our response is risk based and proportionate to local needs. Sharing information between police and local partner agencies is not a new concept; since the introduction of Crime Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs), the sharing of information on criminal activity has taken place for over a decade. The introduction of Counter Terrorism Local Profiles (CTLPs) builds on and replicates this twoway information sharing process. This allows police and partners to identify the threat from violent extremism so that, together, appropriate action can be put in place.
This is an evolving process based on the ‘need to share’ information at a local level which is driving forward police and partnership engagement activity. Increasingly, this should involve a wider range of partners, including local councillors and MPs where appropriate. The ACPO Prevent Delivery Unit, in close consultation with the Home Office, Communities & Local Government (CLG) and Local Government Association (LGA), produced guidance and a communications toolkit in April 2009 for police BCU Commanders and Local Authority Chief Executives to inform them of the CTLP product and process. We must help to support those individuals, organisations and communities that are most vulnerable. By working together and supporting our communities we can strengthen our resilience to counter the threat from violent extremism and terrorism. A national CTLP review has taken place to identify best practice and key issues in the production and dissemination of CTLPs. The findings from this review will inform and update the current CTLP national guidance and will be circulated to police and partners in early Spring 2010.
