GMP response after Paris terror attacks

Greater Manchester Police is strengthening its stance across Manchester in response to last night’s terrorist attacks in France.
Assistant Chief Constable Robert Potts said: “Greater Manchester Police will be working in line with the national response to the terrorist atrocities which occurred in Paris last night.
“We have made strategic changes to both the policing profile of major events and officer presence in key areas of the city to ensure that people feel safe to go about their daily lives.
“That will be under constant review as the weekend progresses, but I would like to stress at this point that there is absolutely no intelligence suggesting an attack is imminent in Greater Manchester.
“The strongest message we can send to the terrorists is to go about our lives as normal, and show that they cannot overcome the people of Greater Manchester by use of fear and intimidation.
“However, we can all play a role in making the streets of our city safer, by remaining vigilant and informing the police immediately of any activity which arouses suspicion.”
Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Jim Battle added: “Millions across the world are shocked and astonished at the horrific events that took place in Paris last night.
“I’m reassured that all communities across Greater Manchester have expressed condemnation, horror, and sympathy towards the families and friends of the victims and the people of France.
“I’m confident that our police and security services continue to be ever vigilant in making sure we are properly protected so that we can go about our daily business without fear.”
