About the East Midlands Region

The Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications (CSSC) East Midlands Region was established in December 2017 and covers the Counties of Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Northamptonshire. The group works in partnership with key public and private sector organisations in the region to provide local business with proactive security advice, to help improve their business resilience, and reactive security information, when there has been a major incident.

In January 2018 the Regional Management Board was formed which held its first meeting on 14th February. The group is now in the process of building a network of Business Champions, who can support the work of CSSC in the East Midlands by becoming Industry Sector Leads (ISL’s). The role of an ISL is to onward cascade messages within their sector and promote the work of CSSC in the region.

In the event of a major incident, such as a terrorist attack, our partnership with the emergency services and other authorities ensures that we can deliver official information quickly and efficiently enabling business operators to make the necessary decisions and share the information with their teams.

The East Midlands Region of CSSC is run by a Management Board which is a partnership of local business and the relevant authorities within the five Counties. The group works directly with Counter Terrorism Security Advisers from across the East Midlands supported by the CSSC Hub in London and National Counter Terrorism Police at New Scotland Yard.
