Roads Policing

This Honda was stopped by #VanguardRST on the A24 at Dorking.

Their insurance company cancelled their policy in Aug 2022 after sending numerous emails and letters but receiving no response.

Seized and the driver reported.







Things to look out for are devices attached to the machine – some are more obvious than others. If you do see something suspicious contact the police and the bank. #Dorking #Leatherhead https://www.surrey.police.uk/.../personal.../ATM-safety/

We wanted to bring up the topic of catalytic converter theft as we have had some recent reports in the borough.

Police are conducting additional patrols when possible. We would urge you to read the below about how to best protect your vehicle from this kind of theft.

Catalytic converters are typically sold for precious metal, but owners are then left to foot the expensive repair bill. Vehicles are targeted on the road, in car parks, and even on driveways, and catalytic converters can be removed in a matter of minutes.

Here are some ways you can protect your vehicle from catalytic converter theft:

✅ Lookout for suspicious activity around vehicles, such as a vehicle being lifted up or someone doing something to the underneath of the vehicle

✅ CCTV such as a video doorbells could provide key evidence and deter offenders

✅ An alarm can be fitted to your vehicle that activates if it is tilted or shaken

✅ Having your vehicle’s serial number etched on the catalytic converter could help police track stolen items and deter offenders (see https://retainagroup.co.uk/)

✅ A protective cover over the catalytic converter can help to guard your vehicle (see https://catloc.co.uk/)

✅ Garages can be asked to weld the bolts holding the catalytic converter on, to make it harder to remove

‼️If you see a vehicle jacked up and/or hear the sound of metal being cut from under the vehicle, do not approach the suspects, and call 999 immediately.

What do we need to know?

🔹Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour

🔹 Location

🔹Descriptions of people

🔹 If you don’t want to speak to Police, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, they never ask your name or trace your call.

Use a credit card when shopping online, if you have one. Most major credit card providers protect online purchases, and are obliged to refund you in certain circumstances. Using a credit card (rather than a debit card) also means that if your payment details are stolen, your main bank account won’t be directly affected.
