Schools top source of police concern over radicalisation
Schools are referring to the police record numbers of pupils and staff identified as being at risk of radicalisation.
Official data to be released on Tuesday will show that the details of 1,281 people were referred to the government's "Prevent" scheme, up from 748 the year before, with officers citing the civil war in Syria as the main reason for the increase.
Sir Peter Fahy, the chief constable of Manchester police who leads on extremism for the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), told the Guardian that schools were now the greatest source of concern for the police, followed by local authorities, the NHS and then higher education.
