NEW: Monthly message from Surrey Neighbourhood Watch: February 2018

This is a message sent by Martin Stilwell (Neighbourhood Home Watch Network, MSA, Surrey)

Welcome to the first monthly message from Neighbourhood Watch in Surrey. This Alert has been sent to everyone in Surrey who is registered on the Surrey InTheKnow/OurWatch system.

These messages are compiled jointly by Tony Kremer, the Chair of Surrey Neighbourhood Watch, and Chief Inspector Terri Adderley, the senior Surrey Police point of contact for NHW.  Please feel free to share these with your friends and family.

Tony writes: Just a couple of weeks ago, Surrey NhW adopted a new strategy for the movement here, and we want to summarise this very briefly. (For more detail, go HERE.) Key elements on this joint NhW-Police plan are:

  • A big push to start up social media networks in communities right across the County – we call them “virtual watches” – and to start our own Facebook page (Surrey NhW)
  • Closer working with the Police to get regular and consistent crime messages out to everyone on a weekly basis
  • More cooperation between us on Police campaigns, and – using social media again – closer involvement in searching for vulnerable missing persons
  • A new role in building joint activities with third parties like CrimeStoppers, Mediation Services, Victim Support, to be coordinated at a Surrey level by a new team

More details on all of these as they roll out in future months. It’s an ambitious plan but we believe NhW has a vital role to play in today’s challenging Britain, and we must rise to that challenge.

Terri writes: I’ve now delivered several presentations to local coordinators and the Surrey NhW Association meeting. I’ve talked openly and honestly about the changing demands on Policing and answered questions around police engagement – or lack of, as I know it can sometimes feel. On that subject can I signpost you to the Farnham Herald (you can get it online) this week. I took out a reporter who was writing a piece on the lack of police in Farnham, no spin or just showing him the glossy side and I was surprised but pleased to see he came back with a different perspective. We are still very much here – we just work differently.

Tony and I are working on an exciting initiative to try and link NhW into the enquiries made for missing people within our communities where local knowledge would be invaluable. For example where an elderly dementia sufferer goes missing. No one knows the right people to spread the word and the local places to look better than Watch coordinators. More on that next month when we hope to have some trials underway.

I have challenged NhW to become more representative of Surrey communities and to help the police access those harder–to-hear groups and communities, so any ideas about new watch opportunities are warmly welcomed. Surrey has appointed a Partnership Officer to build stronger relations going forward. In return I have been challenged on the type of information NhW is getting from the police and the need for a better consistency level across all areas.

To sum up, the relationship is strong and we are slowly but surely making progress, by focusing together on fresh opportunities and realistic areas for improvement. Want to get more involved?

Police statement on closure of police front counter in Camberley

A message from Surrey Police Community Engagement Volunteer, David Howie, on the closure of the Police front counter in Camberley Surrey Heath, in the latest InTheKnow Surrey Heath Police Communique.

As previously reported, on 31 March the police front counter at the Surrey Heath Borough Council offices will close.  The yellow phone outside the council offices will remain, and the police can be contacted via 101 or In an emergency please always dial 999.  The nearest front counters to Camberley will now be at Woking or Guildford Police Stations and will be open from 8am to 10 pm.  In emergency situations please always ensure that 999 is dialled.

Inspector Bob Darkens has provided the following statement in response to some adverse comments received: “The simple facts are that Surrey Police have a huge financial hole and there have to be some very difficult decisions made in order that we may maintain vital services such as safeguarding the most vulnerable.

“The footfall at all the front counters has been investigated and there isn’t the demand to justify the continued existence of a front counter in this location at this time.  Having spoken to my colleague who works at the front counter, some days she gets as few as four callers a day and some of those are not for Police related matters.”

“With other means of contacting the Police available, the decision has been made to close those counters with little usage in order to be more efficient.  The decision wasn’t taken lightly but is a direct result of current financial constraints.”
