Event to Raise Awareness of Cyber Crime

National Leaders In Fraud And Cyber Crime To Stage Event in Warwickshire

Business people and members of the public will be able to get the latest advice on fraud and cyber crime from leading national experts at an important awareness-raising event being staged in Warwickshire.

Specialists from City of London Police, The College of Policing, Action Fraud, Get Safe Online and local Neighbourhood Watch will present sessions detailing the latest scams and share crucial steps people can take to protect themselves and their businesses.

Key threats affecting Warwickshire communities will be outlined, along with the very best prevention advice and guidance on how such crimes should be reported.

City of London Police Commander Steve Head, who is the Police National Coordinator for Economic Crime, said: “It is very important for communities across the UK to understand how economic crime and cyber crime is an expanding and evolving threat that is increasingly infiltrating our homes and workplaces by telephone and online via computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

“This “Protect Yourself” event provides an important opportunity for us, working in partnership with Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police, to pass on the latest and most important crime prevention advice that will help local people protect themselves from these dangers and make life much more difficult for criminals looking to make capital in this part of the country.”

The Action Fraud Roadshow, which is sponsored by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Ball, takes place on the 4th and 5th of September, 2014, at Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Shakespeare Centre, Stratford-upon-Avon. One session will be tailored towards businesses and the other towards members of the public. People are being urged to book a place soon to avoid disappointment.

Since April 2013 Action Fraud has been responsible for recording all non-emergency fraud crime reports for police forces in England and Wales and became part of the City of London Police in April, 2014.

Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Ball said: “Whereas I am convinced that traditional crime is reducing in Warwickshire, I am equally convinced that cyber crime and fraud are increasing sharply. This is a national trend that we need to get to grips with. Fraudsters are doing serious harm to unsuspecting members of the public and I am determined that we do everything we can to disrupt their activities. Action Fraud can make a significant contribution to this fight and this event is one of a number of ways we are working in partnership with others to empower communities to reduce harm.”

Detective Chief Inspector Sean Paley, from Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police specialist operations unit, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for members of the public and the business community in Warwickshire to get themselves fully up to speed with the threats posed by cyber crime and fraud in the local area. Awareness really is key in preventing a lot of these crimes and stopping fraudsters in their tracks.”

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) provided police forces across England and Wales with individual annual fraud and cyber profiles earlier this year. The data shows the total financial loss reported by individuals and businesses in both Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police force areas as a result of fraud was approximately £13m from April 2013 to the end of March 2014. West Mercia’s figure was approximately £8.6m and Warwickshire’s approximately £4.4m.

The equivalent total figure for cyber crime was approximately £590,000 across the alliance area, with a peak in the amount of money lost in December due to online purchases increasing over the Christmas period. Financial loss for Warwickshire was approximately £198,000 for the 2013/14 financial year and West Mercia was approximately £394,000.

A specialist event for businesses will be held from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday 4th September at Queen Elizabeth Hall. The event for the public takes place on Friday 5th September, from 9am till 2pm at the same venue and will be opened by Dr Eric Wood Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner.

If you would like to attend either session please book your place in advance by e-mailing, making Action Fraud Roadshow the subject of your e-mail. Please specify in the e-mail which session you would like to attend.

Feed your green bin!

Article sourced from

Stratford-on-Avon District Council’s bin lorries are getting a new fresh new look.

Look out for the new signs attached to the sides of all Biffa’s waste collection vehicles to promote the garden/food waste service provided by the District Council.

A recent review of waste put out for collection revealed that over two thirds of ‘rubbish’ put in grey wheeled bins could be recycled or composted. This included small electric appliances and even textiles which can be put out for collection in small plastic bags on top of or next to your wheeled bin on any normal collect day.

It’s also surprising how many residents still do not realise that food waste can go in the green wheeled bin mixed in with garden waste. This is where the new signs come in.

Cllr Mike Brain, Technical Services Portfolio says: “Our District residents understand recycling and are good at it, but just by changing our habits and diverting food waste to our green bin will substantially increase recycling figures but, more importantly, reduce landfill costs.  These new vehicle signs provide an excellent message to remind us how this small change in habit can make a huge difference.”

If everyone put all their waste that could be composted or recycled into their blue-lidded recycling bin or green bin, the amount of black bag waste could be reduced by 9,800 tonnes which would be less than 25% of our total household waste.

For further help and advice on what to put in which bin please visit the District Council’s website:
