Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Thurs 28th March 2024.

Follow links  to report and also find crime prevention advice and further tips on the subjects outlined below.






Unfortunately, vans are often targeted by thieves for the tools stored inside. If you have no choice but to leave your tools in your van overnight, it is a good idea to mark them with your name or company name using paint pens and then sealed with a clear lacquer spray. Items that are clearly marked are more difficult to sell on and are less desirable. 🛠️



Using a lockable cabinet within your van, or installing cameras inside, are also effective steps to deter thieves.

It may not be the first thing you think that thieves would be interested in, but stolen number plates can be used for various offences by criminals. These can include things like fuel theft, traffic violations or using them for ‘getaway’ cars. 🚗


A quick and simple tip is to use security screws on your plates to make it that much harder for thieves to steal. If your number plates are stolen, please make sure to report it to you as soon as possible so that any future offences are not linked back to you. ❌

Five things you should do when walking dogs in farming areas

  • You must ensure a field or area has no livestock or wild animals in it before letting your dog off lead. 
  • It’s the law to keep your dog is under control in an area where there are livestock or wild animals.
  • Be particularly vigilant during lambing season and always keep dogs on a lead during this time.
  • Don't allow people who may not be confident in doing so or may not have full control over the animal to walk your dog.
  • Remember where there may be no livestock in a field one day, the same location could be full of animals the next.
