Armed police are to be put standby for major public events in Devon and Cornwall following the attacks in Paris earlier this month.
In the days following the Paris attacks, to help maintain public reassurance and confidence,we increased visible patrols, particularly at sensitive sites.
At no time have the number of armed officer on our streets increased, however we have reviewed our tactics and resilience at major events to ensure that we have sufficient armed resources on stand-by, should we need them.
Our policing style hasn't changed and local communities are encouraged to engage with officers and staff.
