CST volunteers show their commitment to protecting our community after London and Manchester attacks

13 Jun 2017 by CST

Following the tragic Manchester and London attacks, which left 30 people dead, two hundred CST security volunteers participated in vigorous, specially designed security training scenarios. CST’s staff and volunteers are fully committed to the task at hand, confronting the threats facing both the Jewish community and our wider British society.

 The two training sessions focused on dealing with knife attacks, suicide bombers, multiple attackers and car rammings. Sadly, the Jewish community has all too often been a target for terrorists in Europe, and CST does its utmost to ensure that security and training is delivered to the highest possible standard.

CST’s National Head of Training responded to the tremendous outpouring of support and commitment of the volunteers:

“In all my years of training, these sessions were some of the best training sessions I have ever been at, in particular, the level of commitment from the volunteers and the atmosphere in the room. The feedback has been exceptional.”

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
