The role of a Counter Terrorism Security Advisor (CTSA)

Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSA) work closely with representatives of Government agencies and certain areas of industry, ensuring their protective security measures and plans are kept up to date with the latest counter-terrorism security advice. The Royal Gibraltar Police has a dedicated CTSA who is coordinated and trained by the UK National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO).

These Specialist Officers are trained to identify and assess critical sites in our community that may be vulnerable to terrorist or extremist attack. CTSAs devise and develop appropriate protective security plans to minimise impact on that site and the surrounding community. For more information email

CTSAs have comprehensive, specialist training in areas such as:

  • explosives and precursor chemicals
  • pathogens and toxins
  • radiological sources
  • site and vulnerable point surveying
  • business continuity and disaster recovery
  • information and personnel security
  • integrated security systems
  • designing out vehicle-borne terrorism
  • chemical, biological, radioactive or nuclear (CBRN) defence
