Who would have thought that quiet and leafy Brampton would have been the target of the cannabis factory criminals? Who would have thought Exeter in Devon would have been the target of a suicide bomber?
And yet it is well known that every successful terrorist and criminal group pre-surveys its target, so you, your business and your community are that target.
Criminals and terrorists rely heavily on the fact that no one knows what to do if they see suspicious behaviour taking place and hope that they forget about it.
