Armed patrols, which increased in response to the raised national threat level, are being reduced in North Yorkshire.
That's after the Home Secretary announced the threat level has dropped from 'critical' back to 'severe.'
It follows an explosion on the tube, in London, on Friday.
"While there has been no indication that North Yorkshire or the City of York were at risk on this occasion, it was vital that we provided a reassuring and visible presence, especially at busy locations and events across the area. This included armed officers working alongside the neighbourhood policing teams.
We are mindful that the deployment of armed officers on patrol can be scary for some people, but we find the majority of people understand that they are there to protect them from harm. Again, we are grateful for this understanding and support."
