I was delighted to be invited to the above conference at Lincolnshire Police HQ earlier this week. It is great that there is clearly a lot of support for the work which is going on to promote doorstep crime awareness within Lincolnshire. The types of crime involved target the elderly and other vulnerable members of our community. The more people who are aware of the signs to look out for, the better chance we all have of preventing such incidents. I was particularly glad to meet the inspirational Marilyn Baldwin OBE, the founder of the THINK JESSICA charity, who has carried out some amazing work to highlight the issues of ‘scam’ mail and phone calls.
