'This isn’t just any counter-terrorism campaign… this is a Marks & Spencer counter-terrorism campaign.
Middle England’s favourite retailer has for the first time teamed up with police chiefs to teach shop workers around the country how to deal with atrocities.
The new project, which will be launched this week, consists of online videos telling retail staff how to spot suspicious behaviour, what to do if there is a bomb threat in-store and how to respond to a mass shooting.
M&S helped to develop the package and is sponsoring its launch at a summit of security experts this week.
The online course, called ACT Awareness eLearning, will also be offered to employees of other major retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and John Lewis.
Detective Chief Superintendent Scott Wilson, the police national co-ordinator for protective security, told The Mail on Sunday last night: ‘All staff working in crowded places – not just those who have a security role – can follow the course and be in a stronger position to help protect themselves, colleagues and the public.
‘This package is the latest result of the growing collaboration between the police and the private sector. It is a result of us listening to our partners in business and industry, and trying to work alongside them to provide a resource which makes it easier for them and for us to deliver potentially lifesaving advice to people working in crowded places.’'
