Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


A GOOD BEGINNING TO THE WEEK:

NO BURGLARIES

AND

ONLY ONE VAN BREAK, WITH PERHAPS NOTHING STOLEN.


FIRST:  We have reports of Nottingham Knockers in central Windsor including Park Close, Brook Street and Beaulieu Close, Datchet.  Our thanks to those that phoned them in.

PLEASE REMEMBER NEVER TO BUY ANYTHING FROM ANYONE WHO COLD CALLS AT YOUR DOOR:

‘I AM SORRY, I DO NOT BUY GOODS AND SERVICES AT THE DOOR’.


Then firmly but politely, close and lock the front door.

Organised criminals use this technique to locate elderly vulnerable people who are easily separated from their cash.  The young people themselves do not carry out any burglaries that take place many months later.  Their role is to locate potential victims.  Who would connect a burglary with a visit from a Nottingham Knocker several months previously ?

Also – they use a hand held debit card device for payment, similar to the ones used in shops.  They enter an amount, you enter your PIN number and supposedly they have difficulty making an Internet connection and wave the device about, sometimes walking into the road – where they change the amount and press send.  We have had cases where the amount has been changed from £15 - £500.  The victims don’t find out, until they check their bank account, often some time later !

CRIME:

I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.

Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email - www.crimestoppers-uk.org

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
 
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
 
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.

Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
 
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on contact@windsorascotnhwa.org.uk and we will be delighted to assist.
