Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who had hoped to be on the panel for today’s launch of the Islamist Terrorism report, issued the following statement:
“This report provides a factual, impartial and highly useful resource for many working in counter terrorism and counter radicalisation. Fifteen years of terrorist prosecutions provide a valuable tool but we must also be alive to the constant changes in terrorist methodology that we are seeing.
“This week the police published more information and insight about the terror threat so that the public are better informed and aware of how they can help us confront it. Today’s report helps expand that understanding even further and I welcome its publication”.
