Bulletin 4

31st January to 14th February 2018



Dear Neighbourhood Watch Members


We are still experiencing thefts from outbuildings, and I make no apology for raising it yet again. Please take extra care this spring to lock away garden tools, and to avoid leaving items on your land that could be useful to burglars.

Power tools, hand tools, plant containers, sports equipment, bicycles are among the items most targeted, by thieves who find insecure gardening equipment easy pickings. Many people forget to secure their, sheds or garages. But, as most burglary is opportunist if a burglar spots a chance to steal something and get away easily, they will. 

The average outbuilding, shed or garage contains hundreds of pounds worth of equipment, and when items are kept in insecure premises, it could prove extremely tempting to burglars.

I would like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to try to identify the thieves that carry out these burglaries; but we also look for your help.


Security is vitally important in rural areas and additional measures such as security lighting, CCTV, heightened door and window security and marking your property may be beneficial. 

I would ask that you please be alert and report anything you see, whether a person or a vehicle acting suspiciously to us on 101.   Early information is crucial to our police work.


Kind Regards

Dan Gutierrez


Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Inspector
