Bulletin 24   November 10th – November 23rd 2022

 Dear Residents

In response to a request from some of our readers we will be including in each bulletin information on the number of arrests in Tandridge over the last two weeks. However the first report will cover the period November 1st to midnight November 22nd. We will also identify the classification of the crime.

 Arrests are just one element of our activity. Some people are interviewed via voluntary attendance and these will not be captured within these figures.

As you can see we deal with a huge variety of incidents and some of these are more protracted in terms of officers’ time than others.
