Hampshire Neighbourhood Watch with the support of Hampshire Constabulary Cyber Crime Unit now have a trained team of NW Cyber Champions across Hampshire to help combat cyber crime by:
- providing ‘one to one’ (online or phone) support to anyone who is concerned about communications they have received, or anyone who believes they may be a victim of cyber crime and
- giving talks to groups to increase awareness of cyber scams and ways to help keep safe online.
Initially this service is offered to Neighbourhood Watch members (and hence their families and friends), though we will not turn anyone away if they need help. It is intended that this service will, after a period of ‘shakedown’, be published more widely and offered to anyone living in Hampshire (over the age of 13).
For assistance and further information please go to the Hampshire Cyber Watch website at www.hampshirecyberwatch.org.
Please note this is a local initiative in Hampshire. If you live outside of Hampshire you may like to find out more about Neighbourhood Watch Network's Cyberhood Watch national initiative which is delivered on a local level.
