Crime Prevention Advice

Alert message sent 21/02/2018 13:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is asking businesses to be vigilant following three robberies at convenience stores in Wendover, Marlow and Earley.

Make sure your staff are well trained and know what to do in the event of a robbery. You should include all staff in your robbery prevention plans and train them in the use of any equipment or system you install.

Robberies such as these are rare, however this in relation to specific series that police are investigating.

In the event of a robbery:

• stay calm
• co-operate with the robbers demands
• keep still and don’t make any sudden movements
• don’t take risks or put yourself or others in danger
• try to remember as many details about the robbers as you can, and write it down
• If you have a panic alarm, use it if it is safe to do so

Although distressing, most robberies are over quickly. If you’ve been the victim of a robbery, close your premises and try not to touch or move anything. Write down any details you can remember about the offenders and what happened. Call 999 and ask for help.
