Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Dear Residents,
I hope you are all well and staying safe. Unfortunately I have had to cancel face to face events but I want to reassure you that although some events have been cancelled myself and the rest of the team are still carrying out our normal duties and patrolling our local areas. 
The crime rate in the area remains low and actually has one of the lowest rates in Basingstoke. 
In light of recent events Hampshire Constabulary would like to give you the following key messages:
In line with government advice and the latest information from Public Health England about keeping our communities and our staff safe, we have decided to postpone most face to face events.

We are out and about keeping you safe. Please do follow the latest advice from our partners at Public Health England to keep yourself healthy. If you do need our assistance, please contact us on 101 or online via our website 

Cyber criminals are exploiting people’s interest in COVID-19 to steal login details and download malware. This has increased as more people have become reliant on internet based services because they are working from home or in isolation. Please read and follow the current advice from the National Cyber Security Centre to avoid becoming a victim of Ransomware.

 I know these are troubling times but I am confident the community will support each other, particularly the elderly and the vulnerable.
 Many community groups have been set up to help residents in their areas - or are currently being set up. For those organisers I would like to share the following advice: If you are thinking about starting a group in your area or have already done so, please visit or call 01256 423852 to register your group and find contact details for accessing guidance and support.
With kind regards
PCSO Doherty
