Our Chief Inspector, Clare Jenkins of Hampshire Constabulary, is giving a presentation to EHDC's Full Council on current priorities and challenges and the work being done by the Police across the District. This is open to the public at Penns Place at 1830 on Thursday 21st September at 6.30pm - it would be splendid if some of our Neighbourhood Watch members were at the Council Meeting. Claire is speaking early on the Agenda and one doesn't have to remain until the end of the meeting.

Councillor Bob Ayer, Petersfield Rother Ward.

Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Vulnerability, Safeguarding and Counter Extremism opened the NW Connect2Protect Conference in London on July 5th.

She paid tribute to the impressive reach of the NW movement and called on members to find new ways of reaching out to tackle new hidden crimes that cause so much misery and harm in our communities.

The thanked volunteers for their help in reducing traditional crimes such as burglary and car crime over the last three decades and asked them to now turn their attention to raising awareness of cybercrime, domestic violence, child sexual abuse, human trafficking and extremism.

Last year (2016) Crimestoppers launched a very successful UK wide Advan campaign supporting their “Most Wanted” service. This service provides searchable photos of the people the Police most want to meet, it is constantly updated and always worth a look. At the bottom of this email you will find a web link to the Most Wanted site so that you can find out a lot more. We targeted 4 locations in Hampshire; Southampton, Basingstoke, Andover and Aldershot. Our success rate was very impressive with several people arrested in days and a lot of intelligence passed to the Police.

So in 2017 we are very lucky to have the support of the Police & Crime Commissioner and Hampshire Crimestoppers team, again there will be 4 locations where the van will stop as follows;

  • Thursday 15th June between 9.00am – 12.00 at Ringwood (Helen Mitchley)
  • Thursday 15th June between 1.30pm – 4.30pm at Fordingbridge (Jeffrey Gaines)
  • Friday 16th June between 9.00am – 12.00 at Petersfield (Bob Ayer & John Collins)
  • Friday 16th June between 1.30pm – 4.30pm at Borden (Helena Francis)


The vans will spend around 3 hours at each location and then move on. At each location, the Crimestoppers volunteers together with the Police will attend and we are looking for 2 or 3 local NHW volunteers to also attend. The main aim is to support our Crimestoppers colleagues and use the opportunity to engage with the public about NHW, it’s aims and advantages and how it supports the Police do their work.

I now need to compile a list of names that can attend to pass on to Crimestoppers, so if you or your colleagues could support us for your local session it would be greatly appreciated. Please reply to Bob Ayer as quickly as you can, I thank you in advance.

Payment diversion alert
Fraudsters are emailing members of the public who are expecting to make a payment for property repairs. The fraudsters will purport to be a tradesman who has recently completed work at the property and use a similar email address to that of the genuine tradesman. They will ask for funds to be transferred via bank transfer. Once payment is made the victims of the scam soon realise they have been deceived when the genuine tradesman requests payment for their services.

Protect yourself
Always check the email address is exactly the same as previous correspondence with the genuine contact.
For any request of payment via email verify the validity of the request with a phone call to the person who carried out the work.
Check the email for spelling and grammar as these signs can indicate that the email is not genuine.
Payments via bank transfer offer no financial protection; consider using alternative methods such as a credit card or PayPal which offer protection and an avenue for recompense.
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.

Sometime between dates/times 27/08/2017 09:30 - 27/08/2017 12:20 Unknown person/s have gained access to a property in Kiln Lane, Buriton. On this occasion a rear window to the property was broken and cash was taken from within.

Please read our advice below: 

 • Don’t leave valuables on show through unscreened windows, 

• If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly, pulling curtains when your timer switches are due to come on.

• Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.

• Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.

• Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.

• Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.

• If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.

• Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.

 Report suspicious activity to the police on 101 or anonymously via the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
