Greater Manchester Police have appealed for the public's help in tackling radicalisation in the community following the conviction of Abid Naseer over a plot to carry out a terrorist attack on Manchester's Arndale Centre.
Detective Mole added there was no evidence to suggest locations in Manchester remain under threat of a terror attack.
Pakistani citizen Abid Naseer has been found guilty of leading al Qaeda plots to launch bomb attacks in the UK and US.
The 28-year-old was accused of planning a terror attack on Manchester's Arndale shopping centre in 2009, along with an attack in New York.
He was found guilty of all three charges he faced after being tried in front of a jury at Brooklyn's federal district courthouse.
Naseer claimed he was an innocent and peace loving man who came to Britain for an education and a wife.
But the jury found him guilty of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organisation, conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organisation and conspiring to use a destructive device.
Prosecutors said Naseer's plot formed part of a three-pronged international attack, timed to coincide with strikes on the New York subway and a Danish newspaper.
A man extradited from the UK to the US has been convicted of plotting attacks in Manchester and other locations around the world.

Former Scotland football captain Colin Hendry has admitted drink driving but is set to fight a ban from the wheel.
Hendry, 49, was arrested by police after being stopped while driving a blue Ford Focus in Church Road, Lytham, Lancashire at 1.15am on February 21.
He provided a reading of 63 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit in England is 35 micrograms.
Blackpool Magistrates' Court was told that Hendry accepts the facts of the case but argues the amount of alcohol he consumed in a period of time did not "correlate" to the figure provided in the sample.
He was granted unconditional bail until April 22 when the case will be heard in full before sentencing.
Hendry had a long playing career, captaining his country in the 1998 World Cup and appearing for a series of clubs including Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Glasgow Rangers.
