Staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital are being given counter-terrorism training today (Wednesday).
Police officers will be holding counter-terrorism briefings to raise awareness of new and emergency security threats as well as an exercise.
The briefings are part of the Association of Chief Police Officers’ terrorism awareness programme.
Detective chief inspector Paul Howell, of Essex Police, said: “Experience tells us that the terrorist threat not only comes from foreign nationals, but also those born and bred in Britain.
“It is vital that we work closely with communities stop people becoming radicalised or supporting terrorism.
