We're now running well over 500 live operations involving around 3,000 individuals known to be currently involved in extremist activity in some way. It's at the highest tempo I've seen in my 34-year career. Today, there is more terrorist activity, it's coming at us more quickly, and it can be harder to detect.
It's clear that we're contending with an intense UK terrorist threat from Islamist extremists. That threat is multidimensional, evolving rapidly and operating at a scale and pace we've not seen before. But so, too, is our response. Day in and day out, we are identifying and disrupting threats, stopping terrorism.
Our response is unrelenting.
