Jewish schools and synagogues in the United Kingdom have been warned to increase security measures after the shootings in Denmark, despite a recent increase of patrols in areas with large Jewish communities since the Paris attacks.

“The global picture of terrorist activity does give us heightened concern about the risk to the Jewish community in the U.K.,” Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the National Policing Lead for Counter Terrorism said in a statement this week.

“In addition to our existing security measures, we are in dialogue with Jewish community leaders about further actions that we will be taking, including more patrols in key areas,” Rowley said.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has said that the $3.5 million funding for security around schools would be maintained next year, and Education Secretary Nicky Morgan is considering stepping up security measures around Jewish schools.
