 Welcome to your weekly update.  Within these updates I will focus on local crime and the issues effecting you and the local community.  My last crime update has been very well received with some excellent feedback.  If you feel you have prevented a crime, seen some suspicious activity, and you believe other readers would benefit from knowing, please reply and it will considered for entry in to the next crime update.

 I aim to send these updates on the Monday of the following week.  However, this will be dependant on shift patterns and availability of data.

 If you were a witness to any of the above crimes or have any information, please call 101 or make contact by either of the means below.

 Drugs

Over the last couple of weeks we have been receiving reports of suspicious activity possibly concerning drug use/supply.  Please report any incidents of this nature to us.  This information is crucial if we are to build a picture of what is happening and where.  We collate this information, look at trends and work to identify and arrest offenders.

 Crime Prevention

Burglary and its prevention and detection will remain our priority.  There are some simple steps residents can take to safeguard themselves.  These include the fitting of an alarm or dummy alarm box.  Ensuring all windows and doors are locked.  UPVC doors need to be locked with the key as well as lifting the door handle.  Use a timer to illuminate a lamp at dusk.  The list goes on and there are further suggestions in the leaflets below.

 Don’t be a victim of burglary.  Follow this advice.

 Have you been a witness to any suspicious behaviour that may be of interest to your local Police officers?  Please let us know.  All information is gratefully received.

COURIER FRAUD

Last week a North Hillingdon elderly resident was contacted by someone pretending to be from the Surrey Police. These fraudsters can seem very believable and unfortunately they were able to con the resident into withdrawing money and handing it over to a courier believing it was being taken to the police.

Police, banks or other agencies or companies will not ring up and ask you to withdraw money ever. Do not withdraw money and hand it over to a courier because someone claiming to be in authority has told you to. Don’t ring any numbers given to you by the fraudsters and if they tell you to hang up and ring 101 to check, don’t as this is also a scam – they leave the line open and simply pretend to be the police. Hang up and ring someone you know first so you know they are off the line. Then ring 101 and report to us immediately.

THEFT FROM TRANSIT VANS

Our neighbouring police forces are seeing an increase in theft of tools from Ford Transit vans. The vans are being opened with devises that apparently over-ride the locking mechanism – no key needed and they don’t have to force entry. Sadly, in this day and age of modern technology, it seems there is always a devise available to bypass keyless entry. Our advice is to empty your van over night. Whilst this is not always practicable, a solid lock across all doors is also recommended. Whilst many van owners put them on the back doors, the other entry points are often overlooked.

As keyless entry becomes more widespread, our advice for all vehicle owners is to consider using a good old fashioned steering wheel lock.

FAKE £50 NOTES

Shop owners – please be aware that a number of fake £50 notes are doing the rounds. Please be very cautious of anyone trying to break a large note or asking for change from it. Those trying to offload these notes often target small businesses with single members of staff. Please ask your employees to be vigilant and if they are concerned, call police straight away.

  Do you own a dog?

From Wednesday the 6th of April, it is now law that all dogs must be registered and micro chipped by the time they are eight weeks old.  This falls under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.  Dog owners are also required to keep their contact details up to date.

 If local authorities discover a dog without a microchip, owners will have 21 days in which to have one fitted or face a fine of up to £500.

 For further information, have a look at www.dogstrust.org.uk/help-advice/microchipping/

 Latest scam email

Have you received an email from an unknown source requesting payment for an outstanding invoice?  Does the sender know your address?  You are likely to have received the latest scam email.

Earlier in the week we were contacted by a concerned resident who had received such an email.  They all follow a similar format:

HS2: Campaign Update and House of Lords Deadline

0203 286 8701
twitter facebook google + linkedin
Dear SRRA,

Campaign Update and House of Lords Deadline

On 23 March the HS2 Hybrid Bill was voted through at third reading in the House of Commons by 399 votes to 42.  This means that it will now move to the House of Lords for consideration.

This message for those of our supporters who live near the route of Phase 1 of HS2 and are therefore entitled to petition in the House of Lords. 

Timing in the House of Lords

The HS2 Bill had its first reading in the House of Lords on 23 March (a procedural stage where there was no vote) and the House of Lords Petitioning period has now begun.  It commenced on 24 March and will end at 5pm on 18 April.

Petitioning Process – what can you do?

The House of Lords petitioning process works in the same way as the House of Commons process in that those people who are affected by the HS2 project can submit a written document – a petition – setting out what you would like to see changed in terms of better mitigation or compensation in your area.  Once you have submitted a petition you can either appear in person in the House of Lords to ask the House of Lords Select Committee to implement the changes you are requesting or you can appoint someone else to appear on your behalf.  This can be any individual such as a local representative, councillor, member of your local action group etc.   We would recommend that the most effective way to make your case is to appear in person and explain to the committee what you would like.  Technical expertise is not required and the Select Committee will be very sympathetic and helpful to individual petitioners appearing and making their cases.   However if you can’t be there in person it is still better to submit a petition and have someone else represent you than submit nothing.

How do I submit my petition?

The good news is that the rules in the House of Lords are slightly different to the House of Commons in that it is now possible to submit petitions by email or by post and you are no longer required to submit it in person or via your MP.  You still have to pay a fee of £20 – even if you have petitioned already in the House of Commons.  For a full guide to petitioning please click here to review advice provided by the House of Lords

This also includes a template petition to which you can add the points you would like to raise.   Please note that if you send a petition by email you must also follow it up with a paper version sent by post (but this can arrive after the 18 April deadline).

Can I petition on the same topics I petitioned on in the House of Commons?

Yes you can.  If the mitigation or compensation which you requested in your House of Commons petition was not addressed or granted then you can petition on the same topic in the House of Lords.  Whilst the House of Commons Select Committee did make some changes to the HS2 project by granting additional tunnelling/deeper cuttings etc in some areas we believe that there are still a great many areas where the plans remain deeply unsatisfactory and further changes are required to effectively mitigate this project.   If you believe that the points made in your first petition were not addressed you can even use the same wording in your House of Lords petition.

The House of Commons Select Committee didn’t listen when I petitioned, is it really worth petitioning again?

We believe that it is because the House of Lords Select Committee is a totally separate body which will be new to the issues.  Often members of the House of Lords are experts in their fields and they are also less confined in terms of being “whipped” to vote for a government project.  We believe that there is a good chance that the House of Lords may be more independent minded and open to making changes than the House of Commons.

This will be your last chance to achieve any changes to Phase 1 of HS2.  The deadline is 5pm on Monday 18 April.

Crime Prevention

Motor vehicle crime

Over the last few months there has been an increase in the number of ‘theft from’ and ‘theft of’ motor vehicles.  Many of these crimes have been reported where there has been no sign of forced entry to the vehicle or the vehicle has been stolen with the lawful owner still in possession of the keys.  I have made contact with PC Pick of Thames Valley Police who has been in contact with an expert at the vehicle testing centre in Thatcham.  He has offered the following information;

There are currently two main locking systems for vehicles.  These are key fob and keyless entry.  Both can leave your vehicle vulnerable to crime if certain precautions are not taken.

Key Fob entry

The system works by sending random combinations of code to the vehicle each time the fob is pressed.  Therefore, thieves copying the code is useless so they have come up with another way to prevent you from locking your vehicle.

Thieves are overcoming this by jamming the signal from your key fob to your vehicle by using a number of different devices.  These devices can be purchased from as little as £2 from the internet and come in many forms such as garage door openers and house light controllers/dimmers.  Many of these devices act to block your key fobs when you attempt to lock your vehicle.

Thieves are able to block signals in whole areas such as car parks or streets by hiding these devices in bushes with a clothes peg activating the device for long periods of time and without the need for them to be in the vicinity.

There is a solution.  Once you have activated your key fob, YOU MUST ensure the lights have flashed indicating the car has received the signal, and then check the vehicle is locked by lifting a door handle.

Keyless Car entry

The signal for a vehicle with keyless entry cannot be jammed so thieves will simply smash a window to steal your property.

The signal used for vehicles with this form of security system is unchanging and broadcasts continuously between the fob and the vehicle.  IT CAN BE COPIED. 

Fobs made by different manufacturers use different ranges and the signal can vary in terms of strength and useable distance.  This is the distance between the vehicle and the range in which the vehicle will be unlocked.  This can be up to 30 feet from the vehicle.  For many people this could be less than the distance between your vehicle and where you leave your keys once inside your home.  YOUR VEHICLE MIGHT NOT BE LOCKED.  Alternatively, if your fob is transmitting continuously, the distance between where the device is in your home and the pavement, driveway etc. may be sufficient for a potential thief to copy the signal.  Once copied the thief can not only enter your car but also steal it or any property within it.

The advice from Thatcham is as follows;

If you have a vehicle with a keyless entry system, keep the key in a ‘Faraday Cage’ where the signal cannot escape.  This is the same advice as given to us in relation to tap credit and debit cards.  You can now purchase small metal credit card cases at an affordable price.  You can then remove the plastic card holders and keep your key fob in there.  Search for RFID blocking case/wallet.

DO NOT leave anything on display that a thief may find attractive.  This includes any electronic/valuable items such as phones and sat navs, but also be aware of other items such as bags, child seats and clothing.

Have you been a witness to any suspicious behaviour that may be of interest to your local Police officers?  Please let us know.  All information is gratefully received.

Unsolicited calls – Unwanted Pressure to Sell a Property Locally

I have been made aware that an elderly neighbour, who lives alone, received an unsolicited telephone call from a lady purporting to be from a well know local estate agent in Ruislip Manor.

 The caller tried to suggest that it was in my elderly neighbours best interests to sell her house. My neighbour stated that she had no intention of selling her house and the caller apparently did not take no for an answer and said that she would call back in a month and pop around to have a cup of tea and discuss the matter further.

 My neighbour was understandably upset by this episode and I have asked her to call 999 should the lady caller turn up at her home.

 I have reassured my neighbour that she did the right thing by refusing to be drawn into this situation. I have informed the estate agent that it appears that someone has used their name and have made the Police Safer neighbourhood team aware of this incident.

 Perhaps members of SRRA could make their neighbours aware of this please, just in case this is not a one off incident.

 Regards

 Steve Graham,  Committee Member SRRA

North Hillingdon Safer Neighbourhoods Policing: MARCH update

Local Police Update:

MARCH
 
Dear Readers,
 
This month I would return to my most popular topic – good work by your local police.
Good Work (all undertaken by your local Safer Neighbourhood officers)
A detective in the making: Last month PC Stawiecki identified a pattern of shoplifting offences and established they were being committed by the same pair of thieves. He gathered all the necessary evidence from a number of stores then arranged an early morning visit for the pair. His excellent evidence meant both put their hands up and were charged with 11 offences.
Calling 999 unnecessarily affects our ability to deal with proper incidents: PC Foley and PC Moore dealt with a local resident who was calling police on a daily basis making a variety of accusations including that his neighbour had a gun. The officers identified that the person was in need of medical care and were successful in getting him to hospital for a mental health assessment. Since then the bogus calls have stopped, giving us more time to respond to real emergencies.
Villains – we know what you look like: Having local bobbies means the faces of criminals are well known. After parking meters in Eastcote were targeted by thieves, PC Brown trawled through CCTV footage and identified the main offenders. PC Brown set about locating the offenders and caught them in the act of counting the money they had just stolen from another parking meter! As a result of her hard work and perseverance PC Brown secured 6 charges of theft against these offenders.
Villains – we know what you look like part 2: Police received a call to a woman heard screaming in a local address. PC Foley recognised the address and realised it was likely to be a person subject to a non-molestation order returning to the address. He informed his colleagues of who he thought it was. PC Hamilton and PCSO Parihar were in the area and spotted that person going past them in the other direction on a bus. Their eagles eyes meant they were able to stop the bus and arrest the person for breaching the order.
Villains – we know what you look like part 3: I think you get the point – local officers with local knowledge mean local crooks are often captured. PC Foley again, this time investigating a theft of a wallet from a local store. PC Foley was able to identify the suspect on the CCTV and make an early arrest. The strength of evident against this person meant he fully admitted the offence when interviewed.
A police uniform can work magic: Whilst on patrol PC Christmas was approached by a man who said he had left his wallet in a local pub the night before. When he realised his loss he contacted the pub but they told him they didn’t have it. He was convinced that he had left it there. PC Christmas attended the pub and was insistent that they tried a bit harder to find this wallet. His persistence paid off, the wallet was found and returned to the owner with everything still inside it. The owner was really happy that police had managed to help him out where he felt that he was not able to do anything further himself.
Traffic signs apply to everyone: Sgt Fanton and her team have carried out a number of traffic operations in Northgate where there is a no right turn sign from Ducks Hill Road. This was in response to complaints from residents in Northgate that the route was used as a cut through and the restrictions flouted by drivers all the time. Approximately 40 cars were stopped and warned about their actions. Other offences were also identified and resulted in several cars being seized and drivers being reported.
Youth disorder: In recent weeks Ruislip High Street and the fast food outlets there have seen a rise in youth disorder. A range of tactics have been used to try and get this under control. At one end of the scale PC Murphy and PC Brown arrested two youths for public order offences – those kids are now subject to the judicial system because of their behaviour and because they were also found in possession of drugs. Sgt Charlston and I have also met with local fast food restaurant managers, agreeing on a number of tactics to make their restaurants less of a haven for bad behaviour – yes, that includes officers sitting in the restaurants drinking coffee. We are reclaiming the space, not putting our feet up! The names of those we deal with (the majority of whom are very local) are being shared with the local secondary schools who will also be educating these young people. This work is still ongoing.
Bad days have long lasting consequences: PC Groome investigated an incident where a man purposefully dragged his key down the side of a car parked at a local gym. There was no reason for him to do this and no previous relationship with the owner of the car. He seemingly was having a bad day and decided to take in out on an innocent person’s car. PC Groome arrested him and he has been charged and will be attending court.
Don’t be a bad neighbour: PC Low secured a 10-year Criminal Behaviour Order against Celia Tan at her sentencing hearing at Harrow Crown Court this month. Celia Tan had subjected her neighbours to a campaign of malicious and escalating harassment which included her driving at the neighbour’s children. She was also given a 2-year suspended sentence in addition to the 5-months she spent on remand prior to the trial. There is no doubt this woman made her neighbour’s life a misery and PC Low’s excellent work has finally brought her to book.
Acting on information received: PC Christopher acted on intelligence received from local residents and execute a search warrant at an address in Eastcote. He arrested one person for drug offences and a police style acrylic baton was also recovered from the address. Ring 101 or Crimestoppers if you know of wrongdoing, or speak to your local officer.
Partnership working: Sgt Kerr and his team carried out another joint operation with Immigration Services targeting illegal workers and anti-social behaviour in Bradfield Road as a result of complaints by local residents. A police dispersal order was put in place whereby 17 persons were issued notices and 7 were arrested for immigration offences.
Disgusting: A family was being harassed over a period of time culminating in dog faeces being smeared over their front door and car. PC Moore worked hard to link the suspect to the crime, eventually getting sufficient evidence to secure a charge of criminal damage. The victim and his family were very grateful for PC Moore’s efforts in finally dealing with an individual who was affecting their lives.
Remember, this is a snapshot only of what your local officers are up to. They do so much more on top.

Royal Mail Customs Scam: Don’t Open Attachments you don’t trust!

Alerted to this one by the Cavendish Ward…

Dear Ward Member,
Fraudsters are sending out virus infected emails that claim a package has been seized by HM Revenue & Customs upon arrival into the United Kingdom. The official looking scam emails claiming to be from Royal Mail contain a link to a document which will install malicious software on your computer designed to steal credentials like account names, email addresses and passwords.An example email reads:

Title: Your parcel has been seized
Royal Mail is sorry to inform you that a package addressed to you was seized by HM Revenue & Customs upon arrival into the United Kingdom.
A close inspection deemed your items as counterfeit and the manufacturers have been notified. If your items are declared genuine then they will be returned back to you with the appropriate custom charges.
You may have been a victim of counterfeit merchandise and the RM Group UK will notify you on how to get your money back. Please review the attached PDF document for more information.
Document (RM7002137GB).Zip
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.To help the spread of the virus, the email also says: “you will need to have access to a computer to download and open the Zip file”. If you receive one of these emails, do not click on any links or download any attachments and report it to Action Fraud.

Protect Yourself

·         Royal Mail will never send an email asking for credit card numbers or other personal or confidential information.
·         Royal Mail will never ask customers to enter information on a page that isn’t part of the Royal Mail website.
·         Royal Mail will never include attachments unless the email was solicited by a customer e.g. customer has contacted Royal Mail with an enquiry or has signed up for updates from Royal Mail.
·         Royal Mail have also stressed that they do not receive a person’s email address as part of any home shopping experience.
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online: http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone: 0300 123 2040

North Hillingdon Safer Neighbourhoods Policing: FEBRUARY update

From Inspector Rob Bryan…
Inspector Rob Bryan
Inspector Rob Bryan
FEBRUARY
 
Dear Readers,
 
This month I would like to cover some staff changes and also ask for your feedback on a number of questions
 
Changes to Safer Neighbourhood Policing in Hillingdon
 
Don’t panic! It is not a major upheaval, just some changes to supervision ratios.
 
In April, we will be changing from 4 clusters to 3. Right now, I cover the 9 wards north of the A40 and under the changes this remains unchanged. The changes occur elsewhere. South cluster, which currently has 4 wards is being split and 2 wards each are being added to East and West clusters. At local level, this means no visible changes as those team will continue to work out of polar Park. The immediate change is obviously 1 less inspector. In this case, Insp George will move from the deleted South cluster and take on the West cluster which is currently covered by an acting inspector. In simple terms for us up north, no change.
 
I do however have two sergeants who are moving on to tell you about. Sgt Jonno Shard (Manor and Cavendish wards) is being promoted on 7 March and moving to Hounslow. I have a new PC moving to his team called Tristan Brown. He has passed his sergeants exams and in the short term he will cover that post. My May, I hope to have a substantive sergeant filling that post again. Also, Sgt Chris Kerr (South Ruislip) is transferring to the Borough Tasking Unit on 4 April. The good news is that he will be replaced by Sgt Karl Spour on the same day. Karl is currently the acting inspector on the West cluster and is a very experienced officer.

We are always looking to improve or better understand our communications. One question we often wonder is “Are our comms read?” So I would like to perform a simple test – if you have received this e-mail, and read this far, could you please press Reply and Send so I can collate responses. If you want to offer feedback please do, but otherwise a blank reply will suffice. Thanks
 
On another note, our Confidence surveys have shown that residents in Hillingdon are more fearful of a terrorist attack than before. I am looking for some feedback as to why that might be the case. If you have any thoughts or opinions on this specific area, please drop me a line – all suggestions are welcome.
All the best,
Rob
