Police Update


Dear Residents,

Welcome to the Police Update for the last week.

The message includes burglaries and keyless vehicle thefts reported between the 30th November 2023 to 7th December 2023.

 

Please Note:

Phone scams  During the week there have been reports from 4 residents in the Borough that they have received fake (Scam) calls claiming to be from the Police.

Surrey Police advice is that the police  will never ring and ask you to verify your PIN, withdraw cash or purchase high-value goods. They’ll also never come to your home to collect your card, cash or purchased items. If you get a call like this, end the call.

If you get a call from the police, make sure you know who the person is before handing over any personal details. You can do this by calling the police (101) on a different phone line.

As well as the Surrey Police Website, Surrey County Council/Trading Standards offer advice and support:
