Jersey Police launch cyber crime prevention campaign

Cyber crime is on the rise, with more and more crimes involving a cyber element.

Jersey Police are trying to crack down on it by launching a campaign to enable islanders to protect themselves as much as possible.

It will involve islanders being given advice on how to stay safe online.

The campaign has four strands – young people, the elderly, home security and businesses. Each group will have targeted advice specific to them.

It will start with a leaflet drop to every home in February with ‘Top 10 Tips’ for homeowners.

Up to 80% of crime is easily preventable by making small and simple changes to the way we use internet technology. The advice we provide throughout the year will help you do this.
