Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

We have received a number of reports of purse thefts in Henley town centre. Please ensure you keep your belongings safe and follow the advice to help deter potential offenders:

Keep your purse/ wallet out of sight, preferably in a bag securely done up each time you put your purse/wallet back in your bag. If at all possible, wear your bag towards your front where it can be seen rather than behind you where it cannot.

Do not put your purse/wallet in a clothing pocket where it may be visible to thieves. Do not leave your handbag on your shopping trolley. 

Be aware of who is around you and keep your belongings close by. Do not leave belongings unattended. 

If possible, do not carry more cash than is necessary on your person/ in your purse/wallet.

Do not write down your PIN number or leave it with your bank card.

For any further advice please visit our Website or speak to the Henley Neighbourhood Team by calling 101 or emailing
