Important Information about Safety and Security


The latest information about  Members’ Personal Safety is now available on ParliNet. This is not just for Members; it’s vital that their staff read it as well.  W4MP can’t emphasise strongly enough the importance of your reading this and taking appropriate action.

The ParliNet guide provides detailed information for Members on personal safety and that of family and staff. It covers:

  • Running a safe surgery
  • Obtaining additional physical security advice
  • Financial support for security measures
  • Getting Support from the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC) – see below *
  • Members’ Home Security
  • Suspicious Post and Packages
  • IT Security Matters

Whether you work at Westminster or in the constituency you should read this.

*  The FTAC, a joint Police-NHS unit, will consider cases where intrusive behaviour is causing particular concern or distress or is perceived as harassing or threatening. Potential cases for FTAC should be discussed first with the Members’ Security Support Service.
