The City of London Police, in partnership with Get Safe Online, has put together a National Cyber Crime Survey. Its purpose is to learn about people’s awareness of online safety and experiences of cybercrime, with a view to improve our knowledge and understanding and to help provide a better response to victims. The results will help police forces gain a better idea of the challenges they are facing. If you have a spare 15 minutes, we would be grateful if you could complete a short questionnaire.

I was delighted to be invited as Chairman of the East Hampshire Community Safety Partnership to the 'Close to Home - Preventing Violent Extremism' Conference at Winchester on Friday 14th October.
The speakers occupy high profile positions and were very knowledgable and interesting. The Agenda included:
- Making you, your family and community safer
- A practitioners journey in counter-extremism
- H&IOW threat assessment
- Introduction to the National strategy
- PREVENT Strategy for H&IOW.
The presentations were followed by table discussions, feedback and conclusions.
I was particularly interested in the counter-terrorism item not least because the speaker had a deep understanding of such as radicalisation way beyond my previous level of knowledge. The Safeguarding, Quality and Assurance Service Manager at HCC, a member of the HIOW Prevent Partnership Board, reviewed the PREVENT Strategy and explained how PREVENT work and existing community safety processes may interact with each other.
Michael Lane, the Police and Crime Commissioner for H&IOW reaffirmed his promise to all residents across our policing area is to make people and their families safer.
