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.

Dear all,

please maintain your vigilance in relation to rogue traders operating in our area.  There are regular reports of cold callers making phone calls and visits to residential addresses purporting to be from reputable companies.  If anyone contacts you offering any kind of building repair or service, please take details (names, addresses, phone numbers, etc) and use the internet and trading standards to check out the credibility of the company concerned.  We have had reports of individuals who falsly use a company name to promote their business and to try to obtain money ofr work which is not necessary.  PLEASE keep an eye on any of your elderly or vulnerable friends, neighbours and relatives to help prevent them from becoming victims of such scams, and report any such activity to Police and Trading Standards.

PC 21961 David Tester
