Free cybercrime advice sessions in Hitchin

Hertfordshire Constabulary is offering residents a free cybercrime advice session at Hitchin Library later this month.

The event, organised and delivered by specialist Cyber Protect officers from the Serious Fraud and Cyber Unit, is scheduled for Friday, April 19 and will run between 1045am-4pm.

These drop-in sessions are free and provide practical tips for avoiding the most common types of cybercrime.

Talks will be delivered by Cyber Protect officers, Trading Standards and the Beacon Victim Service Team. Tea and biscuits are also provided free of charge.

Detective Inspector Pete Hankins, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Serious Fraud and Cyber Unit said: “There is a growing threat from cybercrime, which has been increasing across the country over recent years. Criminals often prey on the elderly and vulnerable, many of whom would rather talk to crime prevention experts in person, rather than accessing advice online.

“These sessions are completely free and you can drop in anytime between the times advertised. Our experts will be able to give you practical crime prevention advice, to help you avoid common scams and recognise new ones.”

The session is part of a series of events that the team are running around the county, further details on this event and future ones can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council libraries website.
