Police launch cyber crime campaign

Thames Valley Police is launching the cyber crime campaign #ProtectYourWorld.

The campaign aims to raise awareness about online crime, encourage residents and businesses to take action to protect themselves and to report it if they fall victim.

Cyber crime can include a number of crime types, including: fraud, harassment and sexual offences.

Anyone can fall victim to cyber crime, but the #ProtectYourWorld campaign will focus on three key audiences that we know are vulnerable: young people, older people and small businesses.

The sharing of explicit images online or via text messages, also known as ‘sexting’, is a particular issue among young people. We have organised an event to get partner agencies together to explore online risks for younger people, share information and knowledge, and improve joint working to safeguard young people.
