Success Stories

Helping our local residents and crime survivors to feel safe again

Feedback

“I just wanted to send a big thank you to Andy and the charity for the wonderful service you have given my frail elderly parents. They were the unfortunate victims of someone posing as a carer entering their home in Cambridgeshire.

My father is elderly and very disabled at the moment and my mother is suffering from dementia. They were left feeling very upset and vulnerable. The speed in which The Bobby scheme acted was amazing, and my brother and I want to thank you all for your fantastic work. We are very grateful, and thanks to Andy of course for his prompt response and making my parents feel safe again.”

CASE STUDIES

breaking-into-house
lady-walking-stick

elderly victim

This lady had had some young lads challenged by a neighbour as they were scouring her garden. That night thieves had broken into a ground floor front window and cash and various items were stolen.

That day the lady’s nephew had gone over and fitted his aunt a safe. The next morning the lady had woken up to find the safe taken off the wall. The perpetrator/s had gained access through the back door with no evidence of a break-in. Prior to this the lady had been reporting that she could hear noises during the night and thought someone was in the house and items going missing.

It wasn’t clear if this was connected to the 1st burglary or if indeed the back door was locked at all that evening. Suffice to say the lady had been a victim to the 1st incident.

Andy, our Bobby having finished work for the day was called early that evening by Susan, (Bobby Scheme coordinator) to ask if he could make an urgent visit. Andy attended that evening and the Police arrived at the same time. Andy changed her locks, secured the windows, doors and was able to reassure leading to the lady her feeling safer.

domestic Violence victim

‘I just wanted to mention that I had a very scared 17-year-old victim yesterday and Andy was an absolute star in slotting in a lock change which has made her feel so much better, and me too as I was really concerned for the family, so a big thank you to the Bobby Scheme, I honestly don’t know where we would be without your help‘

This feedback was on the back of a referral for a young mother who had been told her ex-partner had been released on bail and knew he had a key to her home. She was terrified as she had previously been threatened by him that he would return to harm.

The perpetrator did in fact return the next day only to find he could not gain access as the locks had been changed and was put off by forcing the window and the alarm sounding off. This was as a direct result from the Bobby Scheme’s urgent response and positive action to a Police referral.

65 year old victim

This lady had a frightening burglary and was extremely grateful for our subsequent fittings and safety advice.

“I’d like to say a great big thank you to Glen for his reassurance. He was thoroughly professional, he listened well and was so useful to speak to. Someone who understood what we were going through to be able to qualify our fears. I Have been in touch with our Parish Council and we are trying to arrange a public meeting where Glen can represent the Bobby Scheme especially in view of a subsequent burglary across the road from us.

I had no understanding of what the Bobby Scheme was or how it was resourced. We are currently battling insurance companies and having huge financial outlays, but when we are more settled, we will be sending a donation to your charity to thank you for your kindness, especially at such a difficult time. With grateful thanks.”

92 Year old victim

A 92 year old widower had let his cat out in the early hours of the morning and forgot to lock his door. Unfortunately, a burglar entered the house and removed a wallet from the kitchen.

Our Bobby visited and secured this gentlemen’s home, so that he was safe.

We advised this vulnerable man to have a keysafe fitted which his neighbour and nephew would manage. He also agreed to installing a cat flap for his pet to avoid leaving the back door open at times. 

85 year old widow

A widow had also forgotten to lock her back door.

The burglar had previously tried various door handles along the same street, with no avail. But unfortunately, as this lady’s door was unlocked, they walked straight into her home and stole money & jewellery.

Bobby Scheme visited and secured the lady’s home.

The burglar is believed to have returned to the property and not able to gain access, they removed a large plant pot from the greenhouse and threw it against the wall, smashing it pieces. 

COUPLE HELD AT GUNPOINT

A couple were held a gun point by masked men and forced to open the safe and jewellery taken.

Or Bobby Glen gave the distressed couple comforting support and reassuring advice. 

Glen has been back to visit the couple who were feeling much more settled and happier.

Keysafe solution to theft

Bobby Andy visited a couple who had been victims of burglary.

The initial entry was the summer house but during their search the burglars found a hidden key to the main dwelling which became their next target. This resulted in the loss of cash and jewellery.

After a chat and a look around the property, Andy advised the couple that they should invest in a key safe after demonstrating the supra C500 with Police accreditation. The gentleman asked him to install one straight away.

Window and door alarms and locks were also installed. The couple now feel safer and the man stated that he can leave his property without the fear of a repeat incident.
