The Cambridgeshire Bobby Scheme is a local charity which provides a free service to victims of burglary aged 60 and over, by improving home security.
The two Bobby Scheme security advisors visit every victim promptly, assess their security and fit security devices such as door chains and window alarms. They also spend time with the victim providing security advice and reassurance.
The advisors will leave their contact details with the victim, so they are able to keep in touch for any further help or assistance required. They also make re-visits with updated devices or to replace batteries, as well as identifying any further needs.
The Bobby Scheme also works with a number of partner agencies, including the Local Authority and other charities, and will make referrals, as and when necessary.
