Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Against Scams Partnership

The purpose of working together to beat scams in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is multi-faceted, aimed at safeguarding the community from fraudulent activities and enhancing overall public safety. 

Here are our aims:

1.  Raising Awareness: Educating the public about various types of scams, their warning signs, and how to avoid falling victim to them. Awareness campaigns help residents recognize suspicious activities and reduce the likelihood of being deceived.

2. Promoting Reporting: Encouraging individuals to report scam attempts to authorities. Increased reporting helps law enforcement and consumer protection agencies to track, investigate, and prevent scams more effectively.

3. Protecting Vulnerable Groups: Special emphasis is placed on protecting vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, who are often targeted by scammers. Collaborative efforts ensure these groups receive the necessary information and support to stay safe.

4. Enhancing Coordination: Facilitating better coordination among local authorities, law enforcement, consumer protection agencies, and community groups. This collaborative approach ensures a more comprehensive response to tackling scams.

5. Improving Prevention and Response: Developing and implementing strategies to prevent scams and improve the response when they occur. This includes sharing intelligence, best practices, and resources to mitigate the impact of scams.

6. Building Community Resilience: Empowering the community to be more vigilant and resilient against scams. A well-informed and united community is better equipped to resist fraudulent activities and support each other in times of need.

Working together in a partnership to beat scams in Cambridgeshire we aim to create a safer environment by reducing the incidence of scams, supporting victims, and fostering a culture of vigilance and mutual assistance within the community.
