Home / 2014 / Cyber crime prevention plan launches (新計劃防青年墮科技陷阱)



Police and the Federation of Youth Groups have launched the Project iSmart crime prevention .

It uses education and early intervention to prevent young people from falling into cyber traps.

The education component will include short films based on real-life stories, which will be uploaded to the Youth Law website. They will also be broadcast in public places to raise awareness.

The project provides an early intervention service for people under the age of 24.

Apart from responding to reports, Police will identify potential victims during their day-to-day duties. After obtaining their consent, the victims will be referred to the project’s youth workers for assessment and follow-up action.


The referral service will be provided in Tsuen Wan and Kwai Tsing Districts from January 1 for a six-month trial. The service might then be extended to other districts.
