The Blue Lamp Trust offers cyber-crime advisory service to Hampshire's most vulnerable residents

Hampshire Constabulary wanted to share an update with you from our partners, The Blue Lamp Trust, of which our Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney is a Trustee.

While you may already be aware of, or indeed used, their Bobby Scheme service – which provides free home security visits, long-life smoke alarms and advice to vulnerable residents in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, particularly the elderly and victims of burglary and domestic abuse – they have launched; Cyber Bobby.

This is a scheme from the Blue Lamp Trust which is seeking to help protect vulnerable people from becoming victims of cyber-crime.
The scheme, much-like the Bobby Scheme, provides home visits, giving advice and guidance about basic IT security.

Our police vetted advisors offer FREE home visit to residents of Hampshire who are:

· Over 65 years old

· Disabled (over 18)

· Previous victim of cyber crime

They will discuss and advise local residents on:

· What is cyber-crime

· Cyber and scam prevention advice

· How to check privacy settings

· Signposting to other advice and resources

· How to report issues

· How to recognise scam emails and text messages

All of the Blue Lamp Trust advisors are police vetted and carry ID cards to reassure local residents that they are genuine – and please remember, they will not be offended if you ask to see their ID to validate their identity.

If you, or anybody you know, is eligible (based on the criteria above) and would benefit from a Cyber Bobby referral, please enquire via the Blue Lamp Trust website at

Alternatively, you can make an enquiry by calling the Blue Lamp Trust directly on 0300 777 0157.
