UK security and the army

Police & army on guard
Join our expert panel for an evening of discussion about the role of the army in security at home.

Over the past six months the army has played a visible role in UK security. Operation Temperer saw 5,000 troops deployed on the streets to support the police and security services.

Our panel of experts will discuss the impact of the army’s presence on the streets of the UK. Do they make us feel safer? Was their deployment a panicked response? What else can the army do to protect security at home?
