Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
ONLY ONE CRIME TO REPORT OVER THE WEEKEND, A THEFT OF A LANDROVER SPORT FROM A DRIVEWAY - KEYLESS FOB ENTRY.
IF YOU HAVE A VALUABLE CAR – KEYLESS ENTRY – OF THE TYPE REGULARLY STOLEN – you must keep the fob in a Faraday pouch.
NO THEFT FROMS.
Keyless fobs, emit a signal continuously – hence you can walk up to your car, it will open and start. That signal is no longer copied by thieves. The thieves use a ‘Relay Booster’ device that boosts the signal from anywhere in the house to the car – which then opens and starts, to be driven away. It only takes seconds.
The tracker system built into the car, is wired to the small aileron on the roof at the rear. The thieves slice through the upholstery in the roof and cut the wire, making the car disappear from tracking systems. If we do recover the car, the interior is severely damaged.
NEXT: A nearly new project called STREETSAFE for you to use:
StreetSafe is a service for anyone, to anonymously tell us about public places where they have felt, or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, e.g. street lighting, abandoned buildings, or vandalism and / or because of some behaviours, e.g. being followed or verbally abused:
Please note:'StreetSafe' is not, for reporting crime or incidents. If something has happened to you or someone you know (including in public spaces online) – you do that using the 101 number or online at:
It is anonymous and is always de-personalised, but assists us to gather the views of the public about how they feel about where they live. It feeds into our intelligence and patrol plans.
IT IS THERE FOR YOU TO USE – PLEASE USE IT.
FINALLY: YET ANOTHER SEXTORTION !
A man in his 30s was on a dating website, when he was contacted by an attractive young woman. After talking for a while, she suggested they perform various intimate acts. As soon this was done, the victim started to receive demands for 1,500 Euros, or they would send the footage to everyone in his personal address book. He has now blocked all contact with that site and his email accounts.
IT SEEMS WE ARE NOT SPREADING THIS MESSAGE AS FAR AND WIDE AS NECESSARY
Please do not say, do write, text, photograph or video anything online or on a mobile phone that you would not be happy for your family, relatives, friends, neighbours, work colleagues or employers to see and watch.
Spread the message – this happens so frequently !

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
A new year, a new logo, a new beginning
Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.
In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.
There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV, for instance.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.
Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
