The Fake TVs !
Following the advice in your recent communication, we bought a
"fake" TV. We are extremely impressed by it and it
certainly gives the impression of someone watching TV - in an upstairs
We bought the one with a dusk sensor, so it comes on just as it gets dark,
which is really useful as we don't get home from work till 6 or so.
It’s so easy to use and such a simple idea. Many thanks for
telling us about it.
My pleasure – We inside the police
station, are really impressed with them as well. We need to thank Mrs
Chalmers - our Crime Reduction Advisor -
who recommended them !
I HAVE HAD THIS IN:
Just a quick note to say we had a gentleman (young, Irish accent, shiny
grey suit with no tie) door knocking around Woodfield Drive and, I
presume, the other roads around Sandisplatt Road, yesterday afternoon.
He was offering to do the driveway. I quickly sent him on his way,
advising that none of the houses in the road would be interested, nor
would they do such business with door knockers and I watched until he left
We are now keeping a close(r) eye on each others' houses.
My grateful thanks. This is
exactly what we should all do. We don’t live in isolation. I
can help a neighbour whilst they are out and hopefully they will help me
while I am out. That way – we protect each other ! It is
worth the effort.
Can I also add. After any
encounter like this – Close the door, firmly yet politely and phone the
PEC on the 101 number ??? We will always send someone out.
That way an elderly or vulnerable neighbour in your or another street,
will be protected
Friday 8/11 7 pm to Saturday 9/11 2.30 pm in Norfolk
Park Cottages, offenders walked through a side gate to a
shed at the bottom of a garden, removing a pane of glass, to gain access.
They forced the door open from the inside, to leave. They then threw
paint from the shed all over the rear of the house and pushed fireworks
through the letterbox, which ignited curtains behind the door. The
fire worked its way out, only causing minor damage.
Police are asking for anyone with information or who may have witnessed
this incident to contact the PEC on the non-emergency number 101 number

Sergeant Blades and I attended the Cookhams / Walthams NAG meeting
yesterday evening. The area covered by that NAG, also incorporates
Furze Platt and Pinkneys Green, however, there are no representatives from
those two areas on the NAG. Members of the Nag wondered whether
there is anyone from those areas who might be interested in joining and
attending our Nag on a regular basis ?
We need ‘dooers’, people with ideas and projects which would help and
support the police in tackling the three priorities set by local
residents. To find out what they are residents can follow the above
link to the neighbourhood Page on the TVP website.

More scam phone calls:
Whilst I was out of my office, a colleague fielded a call for me from
someone saying that they had found my wallet. They wanted my phone
number and my address, to get in touch, so that they could deliver it back
to my house !!
The caller went on to say that he had used my details from ‘Linked
I have never joined that group, but I see my details are on there.
Fortunately, my colleague did not provide either my phone number, nor my
address. He did manage to contact me and I advised him that my
wallet, was safe in my pocket.
I have reported the incident to the PEC on the 101 number, as I suspect a
scam of some sort, but what sort of scam ?? Any ideas ?
New to me. The only thing I can
think of is – ‘when will you be home for me to deliver the wallet ?
If you are at work will there be anyone there I can hand it to ??????
