We have been continuing late night patrols at Thorpe Industrial Estate due to anti-social behaviour in relation to vehicles. 


This week has seen us working with our partner agencies in response to Op Sceptre, a coordinated period of intensification to tackle knife crime in Surrey.  We have been at Manorcroft Park in Egham carrying out a visual audit and general sweep of the location with partners from Runnymede Borough Council open spaces and environmental health to ensure that these valuable places are safe for the community to enjoy. While knife crime remains low in Surrey, we are committed to doing everything to prevent serious violence and injury by working with partners, engaging with young people and encouraging the disposal of unwanted knives or blades in our amnesty bins. We work all year round to ensure our residents are safe from knife crime in our Runnymede communities.  Knife amnesty bins are found at Staines, Woking, Reigate and Guildford Police Stations.


We have been assisting our fire colleagues at a large fire just over the borough border in Byfleet.




Edmond Ndreca, aged 28, of no fixed abode was this week convicted of multiple burglaries, including two offences in Runnymede, after we worked closely with our Thames Valley Police colleagues to investigate.


A 61-year-old woman has been charged in connection with the ongoing murder investigation in Ash, after a woman was found dead on Thursday, 11 May. 



Our investigation into the murder of Melanie Wallner, whose body was found hidden in a bin in Cobham on 6 June 2009, was featured on yesterday’s (18 May) episode of Killer at the Crime Scene.  The programme, on Channel 5 at 10pm, featured interviews with Detective Sergeant Siobhan McLeod and former Surrey Police detective Tim Barrett, and how they and the rest of the investigation team pieced together the evidence which proved that her husband Peter was responsible for her death and had killed her three years before her body was eventually discovered.

We also have several ways for users with hearing or speech impairments, or deaf-blind communities to contact us including the Pegasus card scheme and Textphone service.


Earlier this week, we held one of our Parenting Group’s Keeping In Touch events, which was supported by Unison and Police Federation. The events give staff and officers on parenting leave a chance to catch up with colleagues and line managers, and get advice from different departments. We were delighted to see so many officers and staff from our Surrey Police family, who are currently away from the workplace, join us. These events are just one of the many things we offer to support officers, staff, and volunteers within our Force.



It was great to see so many people don their running trainers on Sunday, 14 May, for the annual PC Gunn Funn Runn, held at the Surrey Police headquarters. Luckily the weather remained dry throughout the day and everyone got to enjoy the warm sunshine whilst out running. The event, which was set up in memory of PC Richard Gunn, who was sadly killed on duty in 2004, is set to raise over £1,200 for the National Police Memorial Day charity, which commemorates police officers in the UK who have died or been killed on duty. Denis Gunn, PC Gunn's father said: “I am delighted at how successful the PC Gunn Funn Runn proved to be again this year. I very much want to thank not only those who participated but also Surrey Police and the Federation for allowing us to host the event at Mount Browne and all those who volunteered to help on the day. "We continue to look for ways to attract more runners. Next year, it will be 20 years since my son was killed on duty and we intend to make the 2024 Funn Runn a special day."
