Police and partners are increasingly concerned about the numbers of young men and women who have or are intending to travel to Syria. It is an extremely dangerous place and the reality of the lifestyle they are greeted with when they arrive is far from that promoted online by foreign terrorist groups. The option of returning home is often taken away from them, leaving families at home devastated and with very few options to secure a safe return for their loved one.
Police and partners want to ensure that people who are concerned about their loved ones are given enough information about where they can get support.
You can reach specially trained people for help and advice by calling 101 or visiting the www.preventtragedies.co.uk
We want to increase confidence in the police and partners to encourage families and communities to come forward at the earliest opportunity so that we can intervene and help.
This is not about criminalising people it is about preventing tragedies.
