Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

Six arrests made as part of investigation into ATM thefts.
Early this morning, we made six arrests as part of a proactive investigation into ATM thefts across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Surrey and Sussex Serious Organised Crime Unit conducted a coordinated operation with the assistance of Hampshire Constabulary. 70 officers across the three forces carried out the arrests and subsequent searches at a host of properties in West Surrey and North East Hampshire.
In the meantime, we would continue to encourage the public to report to us straightaway any suspicious vehicles or anyone seen acting suspiciously, as well as anyone with any information relating to any of the specific incidents that have taken place recently. If you have any information which could assist, please call us on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Important information
The Sussex Safer Roads Partnership take the view that there is no safe limit of alcohol when driving.
The drink drive limit allows for 35 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. (In Scotland the legal limit is lower.)
If you are drinking any amount of alcohol on a night out - even one drink - you should leave the car at home and make alternative arrangements – such as getting a bus, taxi, designated driver or get someone to pick you up.
Our calculator is not intended to help you work out how much you can drink on a night out before driving home and won’t help you if you are arrested for drink driving.
What it will do is enable you to calculate roughly when it will be safe for you to drive the morning after drinking alcohol, and it can help you calculate when to stop drinking alcohol if you have to drive the following morning.
Don’t get caught out by the Christmas rush!
  • If something seems too much of a bargain, it’s probably poor quality, fake or doesn’t exist.
  • Don’t pay for goods or services by bank transfer unless you know and trust the person. Payments via bank transfer offer you no protection if you become a victim of fraud.
  • Make sure you’ve installed the latest software & app updates. Criminals use weaknesses in software to attack your devices and steal information, such as your payment details.
  • Use a strong, separate password and 2FA to protect your email account. Criminals can use your email to access other online accounts, such as those you use for online shopping.
  • Don’t click on a link in an unexpected email or text. The volume of online shopping related phishing emails increases during the holiday period. Remember, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Every Report Matters – if you have been a victim of fraud, report it to Action Fraud online or by calling 0300 123 2040.

    Rural crime is on the rise and it is a serious issue for farmers, businesses and those who live in the countryside.

    Whether it is large-scale, industrial fly-tipping, hare coursing, livestock theft or machinery theft, rural crime has a devastating effect on farms and other rural businesses. 

    Those responsible for this blight on our countryside are suspected of having links to
    organised crime. It is vital that we bring them to justice. 

    That’s where you can help. 

    You can either call the dedicated Crimestoppers number on 0800 783 0137 or complete the online form to give information anonymously about one of these four crimes:
  • Large-scale, industrial fly-tipping
  • Hare coursing
  • Livestock theft
  • Machinery theft
Traditional crimes such as burglary and car theft are now much less prevalent than they once were.  But new types of criminal activity have sprung up to replace them, and these new crimes require new solutions if they are to be tackled effectively.
Prevention is key, and strong communities where people know and look out for their neighbours is an excellent route to crime prevention.
In fact, tackling loneliness and vulnerability is now a priority for the government as a way of reducing crime and building safer neighbourhoods. In 2017 the government even created a Minister for Loneliness.
All of the issues above are specific problems that need to be addressed in order to make our communities safer.
Click on the links above to find out more about each issue and what you can do to help protect your neighbourhood.
