The Bobby Scheme, supported by Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service, is a practical service which aims to bring peace of mind to the vulnerable and elderly, providing reassurance or restoring a sense of security within their own home particularly after a burglary. By improving home security we hope to decrease the risk of future crimes. A FREE crime prevention and fire safety survey is carried out by one of our trained, police-vetted fitters. They will provide both general and specific crime and fire prevention advice to improve home safety. When appropriate our fitters will fit such items as locks, spy-holes, door chains and smoke alarms, etc. This service is completely free. The Blue Lamp Trust can supply and fit police approved key safes for a small donation. Over the last 12 months, our trained fitters have helped to improve safety at over 2400 homes. The Bobby Scheme operates throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and takes client referrals from a wide range of agencies and members of the public. For more information please visit our website.
