Neighbourhood Watch Merstham

Neighbourhood Watch Merstham Neighbourhood Watch Merstham There have been a spate of burglaries, theft of pets and cars within Merstham through 2014 and residents at the beginning of Nutfield Road are keen to start a 'Neighbourhood Watch' scheme.
(2)

We have therefore approached Mr Mark Howell, Crime Reduction and Crime Prevention at Surrey Police to give advice on what the programme will entail and how best to implement. Trusting that residents within Nutfield Road and off shoot roads will have an interest, Canada Hall has kindly extended the use of the Hall to us on Tuesday 17th February, doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.

In the last 24 hours Reigate & Banstead officers have dealt with a number of vulnerable people who were in need of help. None of the incidents were crime related but officers spent time ensuring they were able to access the support needed.

The impact of drugs networks in our communities can be devastating and leads to knock-on effects such as anti-social behaviour, violence and an increase in burglaries.

We are doing all we can to make Surrey the safest county it can be, but we rely on information from the public. If you believe you’ve seen signs of drug dealing in your community, say something and report it to us. It may seem small or insignificant but it helps us build a picture of wider issues. #SeeTheBiggerPicture

Throughout this week, we’re supporting #ProjectEDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death) which aims to bring casualty reduction and road safety to the forefront of people’s minds.

In 2019 in Surrey, a total of 3,895 injury collisions were reported to us. Of these, 30 were fatal and a further 705 resulted in serious injuries.

The 'Fatal Five' – drink or drug driving, mobile phone use, not wearing a seatbelt, inconsiderate driving and speeding are the five common causes of serious and fatal collisions, and it is these offences in particular that we focus on to create change across our road network.

All this week, our Roads Policing Officers will be conducting high-visibility patrols across Surrey with a particular focus on the Fatal Five, supported by our partners at Drive SMART, Surrey Safer Roads Partnership.

We’ll also be sharing road safety educational messaging on social media, so please do share with your friends and family.

Remember the drug driver from my night shift last week?
Well he gave me false details so time to play hide and seek,
Today I caught up with him and nicked him once more,
Now I know his details of that I'm sure,
He will soon be going to court to be punished for his crime,
And there is a realistic prospect he will be doing some time,
Despite lots of paperwork I've now got to do,
It didn't stop me deciding to deal with this vehicle too,
Driving on an expired licence is bad I must say,
So driver unfortunately I'm seizing it under section 165a......

A good result from D-rota who were on lates yesterday. This Transit was stolen, and cloned on to false plates, however our eagle eyed officers saw through the false plate, and the driver was arrested, and in addition was shown as wanted on a recall to prison 👍

I spy with my little eye…something that makes me uneasy.

If this sounds familiar, we can't shout about it enough - please, please, please report it.

Even if it's something relatively minor, your information helps direct our operational activity. We wouldn't be nearly as successful at catching criminals or safeguarding victims if we were to operate solely based on a whim. I mean, sometimes that pays off too and 'a hunch' can reap reward, but generally speaking, intelligence is at the crux of why we do what we do.

Just this week, a report came in with information about a vehicle where the occupants were thought to be dealing drugs…Information that the informant could easily have dismissed and not bothered reporting – they weren't certain after all. It could have been a Tic-Tac.

The information was passed to us and whilst on routine patrol the following evening, our officers spotted the car. Unable to provide a reason for being in Surrey, the vehicle was searched and cash, numerous phones, cannabis and a quantity of Class A drugs were found.

Five people were subsequently charged with conspiracy to supply Class A Crack and Heroin and remanded to appear in court again next month.

All of this happened from a single intelligence report…Makes you think. What could your information lead to?

If you have any information which could help, please direct message us or report online using webchat or our webform https://www.surrey.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/ on our website. Alternatively you can call us on 101 or 999 in an emergency. If you do not wish to leave your name, please call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Serious and organised crime is often glamourised in quirky TV dramas with an anti-hero we love to love.

In actual fact, serious and organised crime gangs affect more of us more often than any other threat.

That is because they target all of us through their trafficking of drugs, of people, fraud, theft and much more.

Today Surrey Police is launching a campaign called ‘See the Bigger Picture’.

During the next few months we will be telling you about how these groups target people and how you can help us smash them to smithereens.

If you have any information which could help, please direct message us or report online using webchat or our webform http://orlo.uk/gTa7Q on our website.

Have you heard of ‘cuckooing’? Well, much like a cuckoo bird which is known to take over the nests of other birds, cuckooing is where a drug dealer befriends a vulnerable person – taking over their home and turning it into a drugs den.

Dealers often approach a vulnerable person offering them free drugs to use their home for dealing or in some cases after providing ‘free’ drugs, will then force the person to deal for them in order to ‘re-pay’ their drug debts.

Criminal gangs are selective about who they target – a lot of victims are lonely, isolated and feel trapped. They are too scared to speak out and get the help they need.

Cuckooing impacts entire communities with knock-on effects of anti-social behaviour, violence and an increase in thefts and burglaries. Sometimes cuckooing goes on for just a few days before the dealers move on, so if you suspect it, report it immediately so we can take action.

You can call us, or if you prefer, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and report 100% anonymously.

REFUND SCAM debit/credit card terminals. TO ALL SHOP OWNERS. Do not do refunds!!! Refund transactions of what you believe is a small amount that you enter on your card terminal are being edited by the "cardholder" and ends up being for £100s and even £1000s now, onto a different card. They are very quick and very sly in the manor in which they do it. Mainly hitting takeaway establishments that i am aware of and the monies are not being refunded to shop owners by terminal operators!!!

Description of person involved – Age: 16-25, Sex: Male, Other details: Usually in pairs, one black and one white (more recently) , or a pair of Asian (poss pakistani) males

😎🍔 Are you going to be in the garden enjoying a BBQ this evening, or maybe you’ll be soaking up the sun tomorrow? It can be tempting to leave windows open when you’re just going to be in the garden, but cats aren’t the only ones that might try their luck getting through one! An opportunistic burglar can be in and out with your valuables in the time it takes you to serve up the burgers.

🏠🔑 Keep valuables out of sight and lock windows, doors and side gates if you go outside to help deter opportunistic thieves (and the neighbour’s cat!) 🐱

UPDATE. Police have caught the scumbag. Today approx 5.45pm in the Dundrey Crescent area a man tried to take a dog from my friends garden. He had the dog in his arms and when my friend saw him said her dog had gone for him while trying to post something. Her letterbox is outside the gate. He then said he would report her for her dogs barking. He was approx 6ft. Shaved head. Jeans and white T shirt. Skull with a dagger through it on his right forearm. The police have been informed.
