Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Thursday 23rd September 2021

Alert message sent 23/09/2021 08:25:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police


We can all make some small changes to our routines when we leave our homes to reduce our risk of becoming a victim of a burglary. These include closing and locking all doors and windows, keeping valuables out of sight and reach of letterbox/cat flap, making sure your burglar alarm is set and leaving a radio or lights on to appear home.

Officers were called at around 5.30pm yesterday afternoon (22 September) to an address on The Street, Betchworth, following reports of a house fire and the discovery of a man's body. The man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene and his next of kin have been informed. Enquiries into the circumstances of the death are ongoing but it is not believed there is any third party involvement or suspicious circumstances at this time. The fire has been extinguished and there is no wider risk to the public.

It’s a good idea to scan the area around ATMs before you use them. Be aware of anyone standing close by and always check the machine to see if it’s been tampered with before you use it.

National Shred Day, organised by the British Security Industry Association in partnership with independent national charity Crimestoppers, is an opportunity to safely dispose of confidential waste for a nominal donation using the services of the BSIA Information Destruction (ID) members.
 

All donations will go towards regional projects carried out by Crimestoppers.

The event is taking place over multiple locations with the assistance of Morrison’s supermarkets on Saturday 2 October at 9.00am, and members of the public will be able to bring along as much as they wish to dispose of, including lever arch files, paper documents and boxes of statements, which will be securely shredded on-site before being baled and recycled into paper and tissue products.
