A fast moving security threat?.

Any serving Police that could tell us why 8-9000 police officers are called back to base?

Just following this myself.....very interesting indeed. Nothing on the West Midlands Twitter, am looking elsewhere.

Couldn't even speculate at this point.

Unless there is a threat to the police department itself this seems a bit foolish. Why don't they just announce they are all going home so everyone can loot, rape, pillage and party on the mayors from lawn lol.

Following Twitter but its a bit sketchy, one person saying that the police HQ was in lockdown, not just recalled, yet another saying they had just been stood down.

according to Itv news ;

"ITV News has learned West Midlands Police officers have now been stood down and are allowed to return home.

Officers are back responding but have been told not to use public transport to go home tonight."

before this they were told they couldn't go home.....so I'm guessing it was some kind of attack planned (or the threat of one) like the Woolich one possibly?

Possibly. I am skeptical however. Could be just smoke and mirrors.

Honestly, when I read the title, ....I thought the fast moving security threat was a UFO......but now I'm just worried people will be hurt in a train or a bus...will keep an eye on this thread through out the night. Stay safe.

The WMP have spoken...


West Midlands Police continue to patrol the region’s streets while officers have once again been reminded of the need for vigilance as the national security threat remains severe.

The force have implemented additional security measures to ensure the safety of all officers and staff after receiving anonymous information yesterday (Monday 8 December).
Police carThe information which prompted the additional safety reminder continues to be assessed.

Assistant Chief Constable Garry Forsyth, said: “West Midlands Police treat all information relating to matters of security extremely seriously.

“In this particular case we have received information relating to the safety of West Midlands Police officers and police staff. There is nothing at this time to suggest there is an increased risk to members of the public.

“We have taken the opportunity to remind all employees of the need to be vigilant. Our priority remains serving our communities and protecting them from harm. Officers remain on patrol and our staff continue to respond to calls for service as usual.”

Officers were held on duty while they were given the security reminder or as they started their shifts.

Measures included advice about travelling to and from work in partial uniform as well as police station security.

In October the threat level to police officers across Britain was raised to substantial. This means that an attack is a strong possibility.

The national security level remains at severe meaning a terrorist attack is highly likely.

Anyone with security concerns should call police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Yeah so they can be deployed and have better coordination. Trying to do that with such a high number of people spread all over the place would be a pain in the ass.

It's England though so I don't really give a crap. Kidding. Be safe.

My guess is that it has something to to with the CIA torture report coming out today.

Can't say why, but i get a very bad feeling about it...
