Cyber Choices

Cyber Choices is a national programme, coordinated by the National Crime Agency, and delivered by Cyber Choices teams in Regional Organised Crime Units and local Police Cyber teams. At SEROCU, we deliver Cyber Choices to the Southeast, and cover Thames Valley, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex local Police areas.

Cyber Choices is all about helping young people to make the right choices in their online behaviour. We want to support them in understanding the law and making informed decisions when using technology. We promote positive, legal cyber opportunities, both in training and skills development and in future careers. To find out more information, please click on the the relevant button below.

We work with individuals who are at risk of, or on the cusp of, committing cyber-dependent crimes. We aim to avoid criminalisation of these young people, and work with them to educate them about the Computer Misuse Act.

We also offer free training for school staff and other partners about the Cyber Choices programme, including when and how to make a referral to us. For more information on these sessions, please email us at
