Coventry victims of cyber crime urged to take party in new survey

Coventry Editorial 17th Jan, 2017   0

WEST Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner is urging victims of cyber crime in Coventry to take part in a new survey.

David Jamieson has joined forces with other PCCs in Warwickshire, West Mercia and Staffordshire to run the survey and assess the impact of online crime around the region.

The survey, which is also being run by Warwickshire County Council, asks people to share their experiences of cyber crime by answering 36 questions.

Now the West Midlands PCC wants to hear the voice of victims in Coventry.

The survey is the second of its kind and will see how cyber crime in the region has changed in the last 12 months.

West Midlands PCC Mr Jamieson said: “It is vital that the people of Coventry have their voices heard on this issue.

“Crime is changing not falling and cyber crime is an increasingly important issue that affects individuals and businesses alike.

“As well as getting a better picture of how it impacts people across the region, this survey will also help us come up with preventative measures that in many cases will protect people from cyber crime.”

Visit to take part in the second annual cyber crime survey.
