Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

FIRST: A possible attempted Courier Fraud

The police report is really unclear.  A friend of the potential aggrieved, has phoned the police to say that he received a phone call from someone saying there had been unauthorised use of his debit card and a courier will be sent to collect it.  Little more is known at this time, as the aggrieved is very worried and very confused.

We need to spread the warning further to protect vulnerable residents.

If anyone gets a phone call about unauthorised use of a debit card from the police – PUT THE PHONE DOWN.

NEXT:  Are you interested in purchasing a video doorbell ?  If so, Valerie pike from the Windsor NHW Association has been working with a volunteer video doorbell guru, to put together an advice website.  It is very useful and will answer most of your questions.  If you need additional advice, email me and I will forward it onto him.


NEXT:  We are still offering FREE home security surveys.  If you are uncertain about your security, as we start our ‘Summer Burglary Campaign’, this can be very reassuring.  The aim is to look at your lifestyle and make appropriate suggestions.  The aim is never to make you a prisoner in your own home with bars on the windows etc.  Most of us now do have alarms and adequate security on our front doors and windows.  Opportunist thieves, look for us to have made a mistake and left a window open, easy access to the rear of a property and vulnerable patio doors / kitchen windows, rocks and garden ornaments easily available to throw through windows.

There is a dedicate email inbox for requests:

A PCSO from your appropriate neighbourhood, will then get back to you to make a suitable appointment.


I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.

Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email -

A new year, a new logo, a new beginning

Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.

In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.

There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV,  for instance.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.

Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.

Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
