Surrey Police’s Six Villages Team needs our help

Or villages Neighbourhood Policing team have requested our help. Seems despicable dog owners have let their dogs attack sheep.

logoOn Wed 10th Dec 2014 between 12:00 & 16:00 hrs, & probably just before 15:00hrs, a herd of sheep were attacked in a field off Priest Lane, West End.  4 sheep were killed, and 2 were badly injured and may not survive. Other sheep have been severely traumatised. This occurred on private land and the animals were secured by an electric fence.

If you have any information that may help us with our investigation or saw anything suspicious which might connect around these dates please call 101 quoting 45140104406

Dog owners should be aware that they are required by law to keep their dogs under proper control when in public places, and we are receiving reports of instances where this has not been happening

Police Notice: Beware, burglars about

Surrey Police have sent this email to me,

It is with regret that I write to inform you of a spate of burglaries within the borough during the last week. It is believed that all of these offences occurred at unoccupied properties during the hours of dusk. In the majority of these entry was gained by accessing the rear gardens then forcing through a door or window.

You can make a huge difference and dramatically reduce the chances of being burgled by taking just a few simple measures:

  • Always lock doors and windows before leaving your home.
  • Set your burglar alarm whenever you leave your home. If you don’t have one, get one.
  • Make your home look occupied when nobody is home by using an automatic light timer or by leaving lights on.
  • Never leave door or car keys, wallets or handbags within reach of a letterbox, door or window. Don’t leave Christmas presents on display under the tree.
  • Don’t keep large amounts of money or jewellery at home. If you have to keep it at home use a safe that is stored out of sight.
  • Going away? Cancel milk, newspaper and other regular deliveries and ask a friend or trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your home.
  • Register your property onto a free national property registration database. Visit
  • Always secure your shed and garage and don’t leave ladders and other tools outside in order for a burglar to use.
  • Report any suspicious behaviour in your area by calling 101. If you feel that a crime is in progress always call 999.

Surrey Police advise ‘Get it Logged to Get it Back’

I’m feeling in a public service mood today.

So, on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas when you acquire new stuff, Surrey Police recommend that these acquired valuables [and existing ones too] are registered with IMMOBILISE.

Registering your belongings with IMMOBILISE, the free national property database, and you’re much more likely to be re-united with them should they ever be lost or stolen. Almost any item can be quickly and easily registered with IMMOBILISE, from toys to tools, and mobile to motor homes.

As the Police say, Don’t let them get away with your gear. Get it Logged. Get it back

Get 'em logged

Spotlight on Services preview

I’m about to begin a series of posts on yesterday evening’s Spotlight on Services event for residents of Bagshot, Lightwater, and Windlesham.

During the summary of the evening, chief executive of Surrey Heath Borough Council mentioned that Lightwater was rated as the fourth safest place in the country. This information came from an article in the Daily Telegraph, about which I wrote in Lightwater – centre of the known universe.

It did give me the opportunity to photograph members of our Neighbourhood Police team who were at the Spotlight On event, to whom some of the thanks must go to enable Lightwater to get to 4th place nationally in the survey. From left to right they are PCSO Mike Mann, Sgt Melanie Sefton, and PC Deborah Haydon

Police warning: Two BMW’s stolen overnight in West End this week

Mark Saunders, Surrey Police Crime Prevention Design Advisor, writes to inform that,

“On Wednesday 8th October two BMW’s were stolen and two damaged overnight in West End. The two stolen BMW’s went missing even though the owners were sure they were locked and all keys accounted for. The damaged vehicles had their locks on the doors drilled and removed so this was probably an attempt to steal them as well.

The registrations of the stolen vehicles are, S3 USE and YD10 BZL

If you see these vehicles please call us on 101 to report.

If you are a BMW owner please try to secure your vehicle as best as possible:

  • When using remote locking, ensure the car has actually locked by checking a door.
  • Be careful with your keys and who you give them to (e.g. valet parking). There is a risk that they could be cloned.
  • Wherever possible park your car in a locked garage, behind another vehicle in order to block it in and under the cover of CCTV cameras.
  • We recommend servicing your BMW at dealerships capable of providing software updates (e.g. authorised BMW Dealerships) on a regular basis to give the opportunity of further enhancing theft protection against key cloning.
