Police: Neighbourhood Watch Up, Crime Down!



Please find below your weekly Neighbourhood Watch Crime Bulletin.


Friday the 14th of December 2012Thursday the 20th of December 2012


I am pleased to report that there are no notable acquisitive crimes to report within your watch area.


Neighbourhood Watch Up, Crime Down!


I am pleased to report that during 2012 the number of roads in the borough of Woking that are covered by an active Neighbourhood Watch scheme has increased by 6%. We now have 333 schemes across the Woking area.


Coincidentally I also am pleased to report that in the last year, 21/12/2011 – 20/12/2012, there were 12% less crimes reported in the borough compared to the previous year, 21/12/2010 – 20/12/2011.


Although a lot of this is down to the continuing hard work of officers and staff at Surrey Police, and all of the staff at our partner agencies, I also personally think it’s down to everyone involved in Neighbourhood Watch. By keeping an eye out for one another, by reporting suspicious incidents that you witness and by sharing crime prevention advice you really are making a difference and reducing the opportunities for crime to occur. Thank you for your continuing dedication.


I am now away from the office until the 2nd of January 2013 to enjoy some festive rest with the family. I am however already looking forward to working with you all again next year in an attempt to further reduce the level of crime in the borough.


On behalf of everyone at Surrey Police I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy, and crime free, New Year.



Yours Sincerely


Mark Saunders
