to children who require these to assist with their education at home.
The Police Service of Northern
Ireland would like to take this opportunity to provide some useful Crime Prevention advice which will
complement the distribution of the devices.
The electronic information booklets include the ‘Cyber Aware’ brochure and the ‘Little Book of Big Scams.’

Many thanks for your assistance in spreading this important message in order to keep people safe and
hopefully prevent them from becoming a victim of crime.
