Overseas Territories Aware of Bomb Threat Hoaxes

Over recent weeks a series of hoax bomb threats have been received by a number of British Overseas Territories, including Bermuda.

As the internal security of Bermuda, and consequently aviation security, are Constitutional responsibilities of the Governor, my office is working with the full range of Bermudian authorities and institutions to review our response and ensure that lessons learned are
properly and rapidly applied.

We are being supported by UK experts in law enforcement and airport security to further upskill relevant officials on bomb threat assessment processes, and to ensure that the high standards of security required of our critical national infrastructure are maintained and improved.

Separately, a concerted effort by law enforcement agencies in Bermuda, other
overseas territories, the UK and the USA, to trace and stop the source of these hoaxes, is under way. I would like to reassure all who live in and visit Bermuda that your safety and security is our primary concern.
