Following the success of the previous event in May, we are pleased to be able to invite you to a further Staying Safe Online, Fraud & Scams training event.


With cyber-crime on the increase and more traditional fraud and postal scams continuing to target our more vulnerable communities, this area of work is high on both Police and partnership agendas. As such, we are pleased to invite you to another free training event open to any Officers, PCSOs, Staff, Volunteers and local partnership practitioners. It is particularly pertinent to anyone working face to face with members of the community, such as;


–       Neighbourhood Teams

–       Police staff & Volunteers

–       Neighbourhood Watch

–       Community Safety Teams

–       Local Area Coordinators
