Counter Terrorism Police have launched their first ever safety campaign aimed at children and teenagers, a version of Run Hide Tell, for 11 to 16 years olds, which they recommend should be taught in schools and colleges as part of the national curriculum.
The “run, hide, tell” advice promotes that people should first try to flee an attack – or alternatively find somewhere safe to hide – and then alert authorities, when it is safe to do so.
A special emoji has been created for the campaign alongside a video featuring TV star Bear Grylls, England footballer Jamie Vardy, and Olympian Jade Jones. This is the first of a couple of films, the second of which was launched in October 2017.
