Current security situation

10 Aug 2011 by CST

CST website has been updated with security advice following widescale public disturbances and riots in London, Birmingham and elsewhere.

To be clear, there is no suggestion that any of the violence has been deliberately directed against Jews or Jewish communal property.

The violence is, however, quite indiscriminate and could as easily affect the Jewish community as any other.

The situation remains highly volatile, and there is no way of knowing at this time if it will further deteriorate.

We advise calm at this difficult time and request that Police and CST advice be closely followed.

“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about... But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
