  (19/6/2014)

There have been incidents of thefts from outbuildings and cars in the area recently.

Safer Neighbourhoods team are carrying out extra patrols in the affected areas and taking positive action to identify those responsible.

Residents can take steps to help prevent crime by following the simple crime prevention advice below and can also assist police in locating those responsible by remaining vigilant and reporting any suspicious activity:

• Securing more expensive items like lawnmowers and bikes to an anchor point
• Making sure your garage and shed have a good quality lock
• Consider fitting a shed alarm
• Keep the structure of your outbuildings in good repair
• Help the police to identify the owner of recovered property by marking all items with your postcode and recording serial numbers. You can also register the details for free onwww.immobolise.com
• Ensure your side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
• Lock and secure your car when you leave it unoccupied and remove all valuable items from within.

If you want further advice about property marking, Immobilise or crime prevention please contact your local SNT.

Sergeant Rob Wallis said: “People do not often realise the value of the contents of their shed or garage until they have been the victim of crime and need to replace lawnmowers, bikes and tools.

“Please take a moment to review the security of your shed and garage and consider if there is anything you can do to make your property a less appealing target for thieves. 

“Motorists are still leaving all sorts of valuables in their cars or leaving their cars unlocked. There is a false sense of security that if items are hidden your car will not be targeted but thieves will watch as you park up and hide items under seats or in the boot so please remove all valuable items.

“In addition to this I would ask you to help us by reporting any suspicious activity in the area at the time it is happening as it may benefit our investigation and help us to find those responsible.”

Anyone with information about non-dwelling burglaries should contact their local Safer Neighbourhoods team by calling 101.

Watch Your Game during the 2014 World Cup

posted 19 Jun 2014, 08:07 by Yateley NW Sec

Published: Monday, June 9, 2014


A campaign to remind football supporters to drink sensibly and stay within the law has been launched across Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Thames Valley.

Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police are encouraging World Cup revellers to ‘Watch Your Game’ during the football festivities.

Police are expecting a rise in domestic abuse, drink driving and alcohol related violence while the World Cup runs throughout June and July.

In 2010-11 there were 1.2 million alcohol-related hospital admissions (more than double the rate seen in 2002-03: 510,800 admissions) and around 15,000 deaths caused by alcohol.

Historically, we see a rise in domestic abuse incidents during large football events such as the World Cup. Nationally, during the last World Cup in 2010 there was an increase in domestic abuse incidents of 27 per cent compared to the same period the previous year.

Alcohol misuse is linked to over half a million recorded crimes, and may contribute to as many as 1m assaults and about 125,000 instances of domestic violence.

Throughout June, both forces will be conducting drink/drug operations at all times throughout the day and night across the Thames Valley, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Every driver involved in a collision will also be breathalysed as a matter of course.

Hampshire’s Community Safety and Licensing Inspector Justin Roberts said: “The World Cup is a fantastic event and we want everyone to be able to go out and enjoy it and not have their evening ruined by drunken violence.

“Plans are in place to conduct additional high visibility patrols in the night time economy areas during the World Cup matches. 
 
 “We are working closely with our partner agencies, the licensing trade members and other stakeholders to minimise the impact of alcohol related harm, crime, and disorder during the 2014 World Cup.

Hampshire’s Superintendent Ben Snuggs and Shonagh Dillon, Chief Executive Officer at Aurora New Dawn LTD will be hosting a live Facebook chat on Monday, June 16, 2014 from 2pm to discuss domestic abuse. The live web chat will be hosted on the Hampshire Constabulary Facebook page.

Both forces will be tweeting using the hashtag #WatchYourGame during the World Cup.

Warning after attempts to steal jewellery in Aldershot

posted 10 Jun 2014, 05:08 by Yateley NW Sec

Published: Thursday, May 22, 2014


Police are warning members of the public following the attempted theft of jewellery from women in Aldershot.


At around 9.30am on Saturday, April 26 a 78-year-old woman was approached by two Asian women on Lysons Way and asked for money.

The victim refused and they then attempted to place a necklace around her neck.

It is thought they did this in order to confuse her so they could remove and steal her own jewellery.

The victim screamed and a man and a woman came to her aid. The suspects ran off without stealing anything.

On the morning of Tuesday, April 29 there were four similar incidents in which two men and two women of Asian appearance were sat in a silver BMW 5 Series at the junction of Victoria Road and Queens Road.

They called out to women asking for directions to the doctors or dentist and encouraged them to approach the car. They attempted to place jewellery around their necks in an apparent attempt to remove their own jewellery.

The victims were aged between 50 and 70. No injuries were caused and no jewellery was stolen.

PC Vicky Brackstone said: “I would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may have witnessed these incidents or who may have been approached by the suspects.

“These are unusual incidents and we have received no further reports but please be aware when you are out and about and try to keep your valuables out of sight.”
