Remember these three pointers:
Say NO to doorstep callers.

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Unsolicited phone calls - it's not impolite, it's your right to hang up.

Busy weekend for the #SPCasualtyReduction officers across the division
 
On Thursday we were out in Reigate and Banstead Epsom and Ewell and Tandridge conducting speed enforcement at relevant locations such as Fir Tree Road, Longdown Lane, London road south and the A25 Nutfield / Bletchingley
 
Several drivers dealt with for excessive speed, one driver reported for summons for an offence of 65 mph in a 30 limit - this is extremely dangerous and could result in death or serious injury
 
A short time later a motorcyclist was arrested for speeding, driving whilst over the prescribed limit for drugs and possession of controlled substance
 
Both these drivers now face a long wait to find out if they can keep their licences
 
Friday night we were out in Epsom again at Chessington Road - several speeding tickets issued and one driver arrested and charged with drink drive offence
 
Saturday night we patrolled Mole Valley and Epsom and then conducted static enforcement at
 
Longmead Road - one driver in custody for drug driving and now faces a long wait to find out if they keep their licence
 
Think! Drive to the conditions, don’t use drugs and certainly don’t get behind the wheel after using drugs or consuming alcohol - it could cost you your licence, your job or someone their life!

Surrey Police have joined forces with Crimestoppers and Toyota to raise awareness of catalytic converter theft in Surrey.
 
From Monday 28 June to Wednesday 30 June, the Crimestoppers-funded digital ad van will be travelling across the county, displaying crime prevention material and a video of a catalytic converter theft in action.
 
You can see the Crimestoppers van on Tuesday and Wednesday at the following locations:
 
Tuesday 29 June
9am-12pm – Sainsbury’s, Cobham
12.30pm-3pm – Tesco, Addlestone
3.30pm-6pm – Tesco, Stanwell
 
Wednesday 30 June
9am-12pm - Epsom High Street
12.30pm-3pm – Asda, Burgh Heath
3.30pm-6pm – Tesco, Caterham-on-the-Hill
 
So how do you spot catalytic converter theft?
 
• Have you seen a car jacked up with more than one wheel off the ground, either in a car park or at the side of the road?
 
• Is there someone lying underneath it?
 
• Can you hear the sound of metal being cut using some kind of tool?
 
 
This is unlikely to be genuine vehicle maintenance. Catalytic converter thefts can happen in less than 60 seconds, so if you see it, please report it. Thieves are known to be violent, so do not approach them, but call 999.
