This message is dated Wednesday 14th November 2018 for Ascot.
FIRST - We are about to start our official Winter Burglary Campaign on 1st December !
I have been drip feeding the relevant Crime Prevention advice, since the beginning of October, when the evenings drew in. I have attached:
- NHW Handout - How to do an Onion Home Security Survey
- Details of Guard Cams
- Details of Fake TVs
- Details of Camera Doorbells
Please send these attachments onto everyone you know in your personal address books, to protect them, as the darker evenings draw in.
What lights do you leave on, if you are not going to get home and it will be dark after work ?
The number one deterrent - is a burglar alarm.
If you don’t have one, or cannot afford one, get a dummy box put up !
On a normal night - when the house is fully occupied - go outside and have a look. That is what it must be like, if you are not home. If you have children / grand children at home………that can mean every light in the house. They know how to turn lights on, but have never learnt to turn them off !
Could advertise the 9th Annual Windsor Toy Run for us, please ? Father Christmases’ riding motorbikes !!
It will take place at noon on Sunday 25th November, leaving from Ascot Race Course - Car Park 2.
For more information email: email@example.com

12/11 Monday 12.30 p.m. Supermarket Car Park. The victim of a scam was driving home in her car, when she was flagged down by another motorist, who told her there was a cable hanging down under her car. She parked up and went to investigate. The passenger of the other car was holding a short piece of wire. The driver of that car was hanging around suspiciously. She was asked to look under the car. When she got home, she found her purse had been taken from the handbag on the front seat. The Fraud department from her bank contacted her to say there had been several suspicious activations from her account. Later she found other cards had been used. Again, please let everyone you know about this scam. There have been several in the past involving people saying in car parks, that someone has bumped the victim’s car. BE ON YOUR GUARD.
13/11 Tuesday 4.20 p.m. / 5 p.m. School, Church Road. Car passenger window smashed - briefcase containing documents stolen.
12/11 - 13/11 Monday 7.30 p.m. / Tuesday 8.15 a.m. Sunning Avenue. Black Range Rover Sport, index stolen from outside a house. The owner still has both sets of keys. The car had a Tracker fitted, which pin pointed the car in Surrey. Surrey police attended the property and searched it, but the car was not located and the Tracker signal has stopped working.
NO CRIME TO REPORT.
ASCOT & SOUTH ASCOT:
12/11 Monday 1 a.m. Beechcroft Close X 2. 1. The owners heard a noise and looked out. Someone had entered their car - keyless - and searched it. They had also removed the garage up and over garage door fob, opened the garage and searched that. Nothing was stolen. Do you live nearby and have CCTV ? Can you please check it to see if you were also targeted, or someone walked up and down your driveway, but were not actually a victim of crime. 2. CAR ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS - toolbox of tools stolen.
NO CRIME TO REPORT.
I am afraid the PEC are slow to answer at the moment - hence my recommendation that you let us know using the online reporting system:
Eyes and Ears..........and Brain.
