I've just been chatting with Bob from Brockham BERT and BEV and want to pass my thanks to all at Bert and Bev. They helped us search for an elderly missing man recently and their social media post spread far and wide to help find him. Great local group! Thank you, Inspector Karen Coyne
We have spent the past couple of days trawling through reports and information about all the thefts of vans and theft of tools from vans. Please keep the information coming in. Although we have more patrols to deal with this, we still need your information and you to remain vigilant. I hope to share some positive news with you soon! Please use our online https://surrey.police.uk/contact-us/ reporting if it isn't fast time but 999 if you believe a crime is taking place. Thanks Sgt Mike Mann

Do you care for somebody with dementia and worry that they
might go missing?
Herbert Protocol: Missing Person Form - Surrey Police is part of the national Herbert Protocol initiative - a risk reduction tool for people living with dementia who may go missing. The initiative is named after George Herbert, a Second World War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia and repeatedly went missing from his care home whilst trying to return home.
With temperatures predicted to drop and conditions changing, it is a good idea to ensure your vehicles are prepared for the various seasonal weather hazards.
Check the following on your vehicle:
• Lights are clean and working
• Battery is fully charged
• Windscreen, wiper blades and other windows are clean and the washer bottle filled with screen wash
• Tyre condition, tread depth and pressure (of all the tyres, including the spare)
• Brakes are working well
• Fluids are kept topped up, especially windscreen wash (to the correct concentration to prevent it freezing), anti-freeze and oil
It is a good idea to stock up on de-icer, windscreen wash, oil and anti-freeze.
Taking a longer trip? Have you got an Emergency Kit in your car?
When extreme weather is possible, keep an emergency kit in your car, especially if you're going on a long journey. If this seems unnecessary, take a moment to imagine yourself stranded in your car overnight, due to a snow storm or floods. How would you stay warm? What would you eat and drink? If you must drive in these conditions, we recommend that you carry:
• Tow rope
• A shovel
• Wellington boots
• A hazard warning triangle
• De-icing equipment
• First aid kit (in good order)
• A working torch
• A car blanket
• Warm clothes
• Emergency Rations (inc hot drink in a flask - non-alcoholic, of course)
• Mobile Phone (fully charged).
