What you can do

Every country, including the Czech Republic, builds and develops its security system. Its principal objectives are to protect the residents, their lives, liberties and property, to defend its territory and to maintain public order. The main components of national security include the police, army and intelligence services.


One for all, all for one

In democratic regimes, the existence of even the best security services is impossible without a close cooperation with citizens. The world is not the safest place to live, and this is particularly true in times of increasing terror threats. In such times, we can no longer rely on professionals only, but we need every citizen who cares about his/ her homeland security to get actively involved.

Citizens are millions of ears and eyes and hardly anything escapes their notice. As our ancestors used to say, “Every soldier carries a marshal baton in his knapsack”, also today anyone of you can be the one who helps save lives and property of the people in the Czech Republic.

Yes, also you can contribute to security

How can you contribute to increase security? What are the threats? In addition to “traditional” threats known from the past, such as extremism and related radicalization, activities of foreign intelligence services and organized crime, there are also relatively new, modern threats, related to information warfare or organized cyber-attacks.

Terrorism is currently the major threat. Europe faces deteriorated security situation. Despite relatively safe environment in our country, it is necessary to be ready for crises that may come. We are a part of the globalized world, and therefore the risk of a terror attack in our country has increased.

The responsibility for our national internal security cannot lie upon the state, its bodies, only. All the citizens, including you, can contribute to security by their natural civil interest and readiness to cooperate with us.

You may be vigilant and you should be so, you should stay alert to any suspicious activities around you, to strange behavior. Do not underestimate even the slightest deviations from standard life situations that you can see or hear around you. You can happen to see unusual behavior also on social networks.

Terrorist must live somewhere, and there is certainly a place where they would prepare for terror attacks. In our country, terrorists may also conspire to commit an attack in another state. They live somewhere, go shopping, collect material, equipment and weapons, they rent means of transport, finance their activities. They may have also collaborators.
