Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


A young man received a ‘Friend Request’ which he accepted and then started a conversation with a young woman on SnapChat.  She suggested they ‘play a game’.  She will send him a picture and he must send one back.  She sent him an intimate photo and asked him to respond.  He was suspicious as he didn’t believe the photo was of the girl he was speaking to – so asked her for a video – which she provided on condition he sent one back – which he did.  He immediately received a response with a demand for money.  She had copied all the contacts in his phone and would send the video to everyone in his contact list, if he did not send $100.  He responded that he was too young to be able to send money and she reduced the demand to $50.  She asked him if he had PayPal as she would accept a PayPal payment.  He said he did not and has not heard from them since.

Eyes, ears.....and Brain



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 and we will be delighted to assist.
