Be Fraud Smart
Criminals pose as online retailers such as Amazon to run data harvesting scams.
They use fake emails that have the company header, claiming your account has been locked and that you need to follow an ‘identification process’ to get access.
The link will take you to a phishing website that has all the right logos and made to look like the real thing. It has been designed to steal your login credentials.
You can always check a message is genuine by visiting the site directly and not following any links provided.

Essex Police Special Constabulary
Great work by Sp Sgt Luke Addington last night. Police were called to assist staff at a care home where a young man with severe learning disabilities was becoming aggressive towards staff.

Luke used his knowledge of Makaton to communicate, gaining his trust & calming him.
This week we will remember
