North Yorkshire Police say they will visit every part of the county in the fight against fraud

in Community/Harrogate/Yorkshire

North Yorkshire has today announced its ambition to visit every part of the county in its fight against fraud with the launch of a new roadshow.

Enhancing their recently launched  ‘Take Five North Yorkshire’ fraud awareness campaign, the ambitious plan will see a team of dedicated Officers, PCSOs and Volunteers visit each of 16 neighbourhood policing areas before the end of the year to deliver a roadshow of fraud prevention talks and events.

The full list of dates will be announced shortly.As part of the roadshow North Yorkshire Police is extending the invitation to community groups, services and other organisations, in particularly those that support the elderly and vulnerable, to request for a representative from the force to visit and deliver a fraud prevention session and answer any questions.

 



 

 

Commenting on the roadshows Detective Inspector Jon Hodgeon, Head of North Yorkshire Police’s Major Fraud and Economic Crime Unit said:

Tackling fraud and protecting the most vulnerable people in our society is a key priority for North Yorkshire Police.

Whilst these heartless fraudsters are becoming more and more sophisticated in the way that they deceive people, it only takes a few simple preventative measures to stay safe and protect those that you care about.

By going into the heart of our communities with our roadshow, we can take fraud prevention advice direct to members of the public, and especially those who are most at risk and are vulnerable.

We hope that community groups, services and organisations in the county will consider our invitation to pay them a visit.

Depending on demand we will endeavour to visit as many of these groups and organisations as is possible.

If you would like to request for a visit from North Yorkshire Police, please contact corporatecommunications@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
