Crime: 27 October 2014


Just a reminder – Halloween on Friday.  If you see gangs of youths forming or throwing fireworks, please phone the police on the 101 number immediately.  Police operations are complete for the night and the Borough have deployed all their Community Wardens as well.
Over the last 4 or 5 years, we have had no problems, let’s hope it runs as smoothly this year.
I have attached once again the posters / fliers in both A4 and A5 – ‘Please Call’ & ‘Please Don’t Call’
Two crime spikes to talk about – theft from cars and shed / garage breaks.  If everyone is aware that opportunists are out and about both in Windsor and Maidenhead at this very moment – there is something you can do to prevent yourself becoming a victim:
  1. smashing car windows / simply opening unlocked car doors for the loose change / sunglasses, left on display in the centre console / SAT NAV in the glove box – let alone laptops left on back seats, or ‘hidden’ under passenger seats / rear footwell, covered with a jacket – we will all know not to leave anything on display – however insignificant at the moment.  The thief is not paying to have the window fixed, nor suffering the disruption of not having the car for 2 or 3 days, while it is being fixed – all for 2 or 3 pounds / loose change !!!
  2. Re sheds and garages, as I have said many times, your PCSOs / RBWM Community Wardens will come out for free carry out a security survey and property mark everything in your garage / shed.  We do this with a silver / white (permanent felt tip pen) ‘Cree Marker’, so that it is very visible – but neat !  If anyone broke into your shed garage and shone a torch around, everything would light up like Christmas trees – making it very undesirable to steal.  If they got caught with the items on their way home, or during a house search – they would go down.  Handlers of course would not touch them either !!!
I have also attached Mrs Chalmers’ handy hints to protect sheds and garages.
