Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Monday 14th January 2019 for Ascot.
A good weekend - NO CARS BROKEN INTO.
The burglary was in an unoccupied property.
I very much enjoyed presenting to residents in Lynwood Retirement Village, Rise Road, during one of their coffee mornings.

Many thanks to the residents.
I also had a really good meeting with the Slough Rotary.  Many of their members come from RBWM as well as close areas.
If I come and make a presentation to you or your group, this is what I generally cover:
  • What is my role - as Community Engagement & Resilience Officer
  • How to contact the police – try online at the Thames Valley police website for the moment, as the PEC can take up to 30 minutes to respond.
  • Burglary – current MOs and how not to be a victim.
  • Car crime – keyless - how to protect your keys - Key fobs, make sure the car is locked.  What is stolen and why.
  • Scams / Frauds – At the door – Nottingham knockers / Bogus Builders / bogus charity collectors - On the phone – Courier Frauds / Windows scam - By email – Attachments / Extortion.  Letters – we haven’t had any of the Nigerian letters for some time, so I don’t bother
Then any questions.

It runs quite smoothly from topic to topic.  It is very interactive and I make sure it is always an amusing and fun evening – never boring.
13/1  Sunday 5.55 p.m. / 6.30 p.m.  Station Hill.  Burglary.  Alarm company reported a burglary at the property, presently unoccupied.  Repeat victim.
The 101 number is still functioning properly, but I am afraid it may be slow to answer at the moment - if you are experiencing delays, you can always make contact with us using the online reporting system:
