Crime Update Wednesday 12th February 2017 - Maidenhead

Alert message sent 12/04/2017 11:32:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Wednesday 12th April 2017 for Maidenhead.
 
This was my header today for my Ascot message, but it does apply everywhere !
 
‘Have a look below and see if you can guess what my Crime Prevention message is this week’ ????
 
Some people say that they do not lock their cars to prevent opportunist thieves smashing car windows / forcing car door locks to break in.
 
FINE
 
AS LONG AS YOU LEAVE NOTHING ON DISPLAY IN THE CAR TO MAKE IT A TARGET.
 
If our opportunist thieves find cars left unlocked in an area, as they walk along trying car door handles, with items left inside worth stealing; those cars, will act as a CRIME ATTRACTOR.  Once opportunist thieves find an area with easy pickings, news spreads amongst other thieves.  The news is – a community with lax security and little awareness – or – they have so much money and valuable possessions, they can afford just to replace them !
 
Once this message spreads amongst our criminal fraternity, you will be visited, not only by opportunist car thieves with a drug habit to feed, but opportunist burglars.  If people don’t bother to lock their cars and leave valuable items on display, or don’t bother to lock garages, they might be lax with their home security, leaving windows open, back doors unlocked, alarms not set !
 
YOU DO NOT WANT THESE PEOPLE VISITING YOUR AREA, TO SEE WHAT IS ON OFFER.
 
EVERYONE MUST PRESENT A UNITED FRONT – WE ARE CRIME SAVVY, KNOW ABOUT CRIME PREVENTION AND WILL PROTECT OUR HARD EARNED PROPERTY – NO EASY PICKINGS HERE !
 
GO ELSEWHERE !
 
PROTECT YOURSELVES, YOUR PROPERTY AND YOUR COMMUNITY !
 
Four cars entered and searched, were left unlocked on driveways.  Valuable golf clubs were stolen.  In one case, the opportunist thieves simply opened an UNLOCKED garage door, searched the garage as well as the car, left UNLOCKED inside.  A second car was left on the driveway – also UNLOCKED !
 
In another case, they searched an UNLOCKED car and then walked down the side access to the house and stole dogfood from an outside fridge !!
 
An essential part of my role is to build ‘Community Resilience’, to ensure scarce police resources are used, where they are most needed !
 
We all need to take better care of our property !
NEXT:
Several incidents over the last 48 hours of dippers (pick pockets) in Windsor town centre, but we also have them in Maidenhead.  I am not in the least surprised, the Town Centres are a draw for pickpockets.  I was walking back from Waitrose yesterday behind a young girl with ‘Tote’ bag over her shoulder, pushed to the back under her arm.  She was listening to music through headphones from her mobile phone, while texting, as she walked along.  She was in a world of her own, with absolutely no awareness of who was around her.  Walking through the town, many people have to say sorry as they bump into me or obstruct me and are quite oblivious of their surroundings.  This makes them easy targets for thieves.
 
DON’T LET IT BE YOU
 
Never, be in a position of having to say sorry, because you were unaware of someone in front of or behind you that you have obstructed !!!
 
THAT MAKES YOU A TARGET
