The 'Prevent' programme encompasses a number of agencies, departments and work strands. However, the police's Prevent Case Management process has included almost 700 people in London since 2014.

We cannot provide the specific number by borough. To breakdown figures on a borough basis could be used to identify the level of policing activity and would enable those engaged in criminal/terrorist activity to identify the focus of policing activity and any tactics that may or may not be deployed.
