Cold Callers or Nottingham Knockers

Alert message sent 14/02/2018 13:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

Surrey Police have had a few reports over the last couple of days that there are Cold Callers or Nottingham Knockers in the Chiddingfold and Courts Hill Road area of Haslemere.

Our best advice is not to open the door to them and to report it directly to our contact centre ideally at the time of the incident (or at your earliest opportunity), by calling 101 (our non-emergency number) or 999 (in an emergency only if you feel in danger) Both numbers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You can also report them via our website.

Our call handlers will then log the details, can run any necessary checks and may deploy officers to attend if necessary/appropriate, to take their details, check to see if they have a pedlars’ license, and move them on/deal with them as appropriate.

The following link also gives you a free to print 'No cold callers' sign for your door or window -
