The British government will create four new regional units and allocated 34 million pounds, equivalent to about 46,3 million euros, to address terrorist actions, an official source said.
A spokesman for the Home Office of the United Kingdom noted that such measures are necessary in view to the real and serious threat of possible attacks against the country as those conducted in mid-November in Paris by the militant group Islamic State (IS), which caused the death of 130 people.
The measures were announced after the British Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) warned Saturday the Home Secretary Theresa May on the serious risk to several cities due to the insufficient number of police officers.
Since August 2014 the terror alert status remains in force in UK and after the attacks made by the IS in the French capital, the British government announced the hiring of 900,000 new policemen, but the security services considered them insufficient to deal with the threats.
In early December the British police reported the arrest of four men in the town of Luton, 51 kilometers north of London, accused of committing, preparing and abetting terrorist activities.
On December 14, the British Nadir Syed, 21, was convicted of preparing terrorist acts in 2014 instigated by IS.
According to official data, it is estimated that in two years about 700 British Muslims traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic terrorist group.
