Items stolen from shed on allotment #Dorking - regularly check security, consider a battery-operated shed alarm. They look low key but they respond to movement or door contact with an extremely loud siren. Paint larger items with postcode.
The use of air rifles within your area.

Regardless of whether somebody is injured or property is damaged, the use of an air rifle beyond an individual’s premises is illegal and is can result in arrest. 

To break it down:

If an individual has an air rifle within their own premises and uses that air rifle to fire a projectile beyond the boundary of their own premises, then they have committed an offence contrary to Section 21A of the Firearms Act 1968.  

In an extreme circumstance this could result in a £1000 fine.

Driver in #Dorking failed to see our brightly marked Police Car as he drove passed us on his mobile phone. Ticket issued.
As tempting as it might be to publicise your newfound freedom on social media - if burglars can see you're away then this might only tempt them to act
Burglars target windows as they can offer easier access than doors. Check how your windows look from the outside, removing potential access points where you can.
Are there walls, bins or garden furniture that could be used to reach windows?
