Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Tues 27th April 2021
Burglary Alert: Caen Wood Road Ashtead Saturday 24th 09:30 April Garden shed broken into and tools and materials stolen including metals. Under Investigation.
Shed security can be improved with a few simple measures: Don’t make a burglar’s job easier by leaving gardening tools lying around as these are often used to force entry into your home – a garden spade can do a lot of damage to a door or window in a short space of time.

Remember most burglaries are committed at the rear of the home.

Security marking your tools and equipment using an SBD recognised forensic asset marking or etching kit is another highly effective and visible deterrent to thieves and an established method of reducing theft.
Burglary Alert: Burnt Oak Lane Newdigate Thursday 22nd April 10:50 – 11:00.  Rural location access believed to have been made by side door to property suspect believed to have exited when alarm activated. Under Investigation.
CCTV is Technology which allows you to monitor your home and property has changed considerably in recent years.

The Internet Of Things ‘IOT’ has moved into Wi-Fi doorbells and camera systems, these can be linked to your phone and tablet to alert you to any activation and view your property in real-time.
CCTV, together with appropriate signage, can provide a good deterrent to intruders.
CCTV cameras should provide images of recognition quality and should be positioned in such a way that light, natural or otherwise does not interfere with picture quality.
A CCTV system should be designed to cover vulnerable areas at relevant times of the day, such as the need for infra-red technology to record night time activity.
For evidentially purposes the CCTV system should have a recording and storage capability of 31 days.
Consideration should be given to garden landscaping and planting to ensure that any growth through the seasons doesn’t restrict the coverage of the CCTV system during the growing season
In high crime areas, cameras may need protection within vandal-resistant housings. The cameras should also be positioned so that they are not easily accessible.
Images should not be captured of the street scene unless the user complies with the requirements set out by the Information Commissioners Office.
The CCTV cameras including the housing must be regularly maintained and cleaned to ensure that the quality of the images are not inhibited. This could be the removal of a spider’s web or ensuring that moisture is not infiltrating the camera so that remedial measures can be undertaken.
Calling with information about knife crime may feel hard, but there are harder calls. Like the call Becky had to make when her son Archie was murdered.
You can help save a life by calling to report information. Even tiny details can help stop knife crime and keep your community safe.

We’d particularly like to hear from anyone who saw a silver Toyota driving erratically in the area before the incident.

Can you help PC Ed Ferris, who would like to identify this e-scooter rider after a near miss with a police vehicle on Tuesday, 13 April just before midday?
The man was riding a petrol or electrically powered scooter with large balloon tyres. It was travelling at speed along a footpath that intercepts the road at Merrylands Farm, #Bookham and went into Edenside Road via another footpath.
PC Ferris says: “The scooter was being ridden erratically and with very little care and attention for the surroundings. It came very close to colliding with my police car so I am keen to talk to the rider. It could easily have driven into one of the pedestrians on a nearby footpath instead, or the rider could have injured himself.
“SNT colleagues have had reports of anti-social behaviour from several e-scooter riders in the area and we would like to put a stop to it.”
If you can help us identify the rider, please send us a private message here, or contact us through the live chat on our website, quoting PR/45210038864.
Please do not suggest or speculate about the person’s identity in the comments.
If you see any other anti-social behaviour, please don’t hesitate to report it to us in the same way.

Thieves can remove a catalytic converter within minutes by using a jack to lift the vehicle, so remember, if you see a car jacked up and hear the sound of a tool, it could be catalytic converter theft, so call police on 999.
