Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
FIRST – a warning from one of our members:
I am a Resident of in Maidenhead, several residents on our street received hand written envelopes containing a CD (postmark N.Ireland). It purports to contain criminal files/docs.
This is appears to be a malware CD ROM. If you put it in your computer and open the disc, it will download malware into your PC. Whoever sent them, can then access your computer remotely
Please discard the disc.
Can you please circulate this to the neighbourhood alert group.
Many thanks Giuseppe, your road may not have been the only place to receive these.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
