Hampshire Bobby SchemeThe Bobby Scheme is a practical service providing FREE home security, long-life smoke alarms and peace of mind for the vulnerable and elderly within Hampshire. Over the last 12 months, our trained fitters have helped to improve safety at over 2400 homes.
How the Scheme works
The Bobby Scheme operates throughout Hampshire (including Southampton and Portsmouth) and takes client referrals from a wide range of agencies and members of the public.
At the earliest opportunity, a visit from one of our trained fitters is arranged. They carry out a full crime-prevention survey, fitting as appropriate:
- Door Chains
- Smoke Alarms
The Bobby Fitters are uniformed, police vetted and carry ID cards to reassure our clients.
The Blue Lamp Trust are happy to be able to offer the supply and fit of two Key Safe options;
- The Supra C500 Key Safe is the only ACPO Police Approved Key Safe, available for a donation £75.00 (including supply and fitting)
- The Permeant Key Safe is a cost effective option, available for a donation of £40.00 (including supply and fitting)
The Fitter spends time with each client, giving both general reassurance and specific crime-prevention advice to improve the safety of their homes.
Please note that we do not carry out electrical work, installation of CCTV, glazing, or other repairs.
Referrals can be made on behalf of anyone who meets our criteria, including people who are:
Vulnerable due to age (over 65)
Vulnerable due to circumstance
Victim of burglary
Repeat victim of crime
Victim of domestic abuse
If you are a general member of the public and unsure if somebody meets our referral criteria, please contact our team by writing to email@example.com or phoning 0300 777 0157.
Alternately, if you work for an organisation using Criminal Justice Secure Mail (CJSM), you should instead write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
