Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Thursday 4th August 2022

Good Morning, 

Most domestic burglaries are committed by opportunists. Criminals will look for homes that: seem unoccupied / have little or no apparent security / have doors or windows left open, or / where they think they won't be seen. https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/burglary-WIDEN


Use the (FCA) register to check if the company is regulated by the FCA. If you deal with a firm (or individual) that isn’t regulated, you may not be covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) if things go wrong and you lose your money. https://www.fca.org.uk/firms/financial-services-register

A 29-year-old man from Dorking has been arrested on suspicion of GBH and affray. He remains in police custody.

Some of this advice might seem obvious, but there are some simple things we can do to help other people feel safer when they're out in public.
