Appeal following incident in Hemel Hempstead a stabbing

Dear Watch Member,

Officers investigating a stabbing incident in Hemel Hempstead are appealing for information and witnesses.

It happened near to the rainbow monument on Marlowes between 7.45pm and 8pm on Tuesday, January 9.

An argument between a group of teenagers resulted in two of the boys being stabbed by what is reported to be a kitchen knife.

The first victim, a 17-year-old boy, suffered several stab wounds to his torso and the second victim, a 16-year-old boy, suffered a slash wound to his back.

The offender made off and is believed to have left the area in a taxi.

Paramedics were called and both boys were taken to hospital for treatment. They are both in a stable condition.

It is believed that the victims and the offender are known to each other.

Detective Sergeant Paul Perkins, from the Dacorum Local Crime Unit, said: “I would like to reassure the community that this type of crime is unusual in Hemel Hempstead, and at this stage we do not believe this was a random attack.

“We are doing everything we can to trace the person responsible but we would be very keen to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened and has not yet spoken to us. Equally, if you saw anyone running from the scene or leaving the area in a vehicle, please get in touch.”

If you have any information that may assist the investigation, please contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference D1/18/284, or report information online at www.herts.police.uk/report.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will never need to go to court.

Dear Watch Member,

As the New Year begins, Hertfordshire Constabulary is asking residents to make sure they take good care of new valuables they received at Christmas.

The New Year is a prime time for burglars to target homes, for items bought over Christmas. Leaving items or packaging on view can offer an opportunity to a thief.

"Children and adults are using gifts they received at Christmas it would be terrible to have it stolen. Leaving packaging out could advertise your new items to burglars. Similarly, if you are showing off new phones, jewellery or other valuables when out can attract the attention of thieves" said Inspector Nicola Dean of Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Crime Reduction Unit.

Hertfordshire Constabulary offers the following advice:

If you’re due to get home after it gets dark, why not use timer switches on your lamps to give your home a ‘lived-in’ look?

Lock all doors, windows, and ensure any PVCU doors are locked properly.

Pay attention to making sure that ground floor windows and windows that are accessible above flat roofs, close to drain pipes or in reach of fire escapes, are secure.

Don’t leave boxes and packaging out by your bin which could advertise to passing thieves what's inside your home.

Try to keep all valuables like laptops, cameras and mobile phones out of the sight, and register them on the free online database: www.immobilise.com.

Consider installing a security cameras, lights or burglar alarm, discounted products are available via www.owlprotect.co.uk.

Dear Watch Member,

Mobile devices attract thieves. Keep them concealed when possible and don’t leave them unattended. Also, record the IMEI number and install a tracking app.

Put a PIN on your device – it’s the first line of defence against unauthorised use if lost, stolen, or falling into little hands. It’s fast and easy to do.

Losing precious photos or contact details can be devastating. Ensure everything on your device is backed up online.

Download a reputable security app and keep it updated, to avoid malware like spyware.

Don’t store passwords or other confidential information in notes or documents on your device. Lose it, and your information may no longer be private.

Take care when using your device in public: someone may look over your shoulder. When doing something personal or entering confidential details, don’t use Wi-Fi in public places like cafés or hotel rooms, they may be insecure.

Use only app sources like Google Play, App Store or Microsoft Store. Never download apps from random sites.

The internet fascinates children, but they need protection against unsuitable content. Use filters and parental apps, and work with your children to foster safe use of the internet, social media and texting. Our printable factsheet (attached) recommends sources of advice.

Many online games let you (or your children) run up bills for in-app purchases, so take care to keep track. Choose options requiring a password for purchases in the app store itself. If children are playing games, ensure they’re age-appropriate, and monitor who they communicate with.

Dear Watch Member,

In the USA, the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed charges against Western Union who admitted to not doing enough to protect victims who were using its services. As a result, £437 million is being held by the US Government to reimburse victims of fraud that involved a wire transfer via Western Union.

Anybody in the UK who was a victim of fraud which involved making a Western Union wire transfer payment between 1st January 2004 and 19th January 2017 can apply for a refund.

How to apply for a refund

You can either apply online or by post until the 12th February 2018, so time is tight. The necessary forms can be found at: http://www.westernunionremission.com

To apply online, fill in the Western Union remission claim form.
To apply by post, download the claims form and send it to: United States vs the Western Union Company, PO Box 404028, Louisville, KY 40233-4028.
For more details, the DOJ has a list of frequently asked questions at http://www.westernunionremission.com/frequently-asked-questions.aspx

Protect yourself

Although we have not yet received any reports, we believe that fraudsters will try to use this court settlement to commit further fraud against victims who are not aware of all the facts. Fraudsters are clever, so stay one step ahead by knowing what to look out for:

Filing a claim is free, so don’t pay anyone to file a claim on your behalf.
No one associated with the claims process will call to ask for your bank account or credit card number.
Make sure you only apply through the official www.westernunionremission.com website.
Challenge any calls, letters or emails from people you don’t know or anyone claiming to work on behalf of Western Union.
You don’t have to pay to get your money back, nor should you need to use a claims firm.
Action Fraud cannot claim money on your behalf.

Dear Watch Member,

Following this week's announcement from the Home Office, I am now in a position to set out proposals for next year's council tax precept to be spent on policing.

The government has given Police and Crime Commissioners the flexibility to apply an increase equivalent to £1 a month on the average household to fund local policing.

In Hertfordshire, this will be spent on protecting neighbourhood policing teams and investing in additional police officers for Hertfordshire's specialist Operation Scorpion units to help tackle burglary, anti-social behaviour and drug-related crime.

Additional funding will also be placed into the Force Control Room, where 999 and 101 calls have risen dramatically since the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.

There will also be more funding for crime investigation teams to make sure that victims of crime receive the best care possible.

You can read my Open Letter attached to this email, or at the website, where you can also see the press release and FAQs.

Under these proposals, Hertfordshire will continue to have one of the lowest council tax levels in the whole country.

I welcome your views on this proposal - please email ku.vog.nnp.ccp.streh|sweiv.ruoy#ku.vog.nnp.ccp.streh|sweiv.ruoy or write to:

Dear Watch Member,

Hertfordshire Constabulary would like to wish all residents in the county a merry, crime-free Christmas.

During December police are reminding residents to keep their homes and valuables secure by following some simple crime prevention tips to make sure everyone enjoys a wonderful Christmas.

Inspector Nicola Dean said: “The weeks leading up to Christmas are a busy time of year for everyone, including criminals. At this time of year thieves know that homes are full of gifts and will be on the lookout for opportunities to steal them. Leaving gifts in outbuildings or in cars makes them more accessible to thieves. If you leave valuables on view either at home or in the car, a thief may be tempted.”

  • Make sure you keep all your gifts in a secure place – don’t leave them in the shed or garage, or on view near windows or doors.
  • Don’t leave bags, purses or other valuables on view in your car.
  • Lock up when you leave – make sure all windows and doors are securely locked when you leave the house or go up to bed.
  • Security mark valuables and register them for free on www.immobilise.com.
  • Security marking and registering your children’s Christmas gifts will help to keep them safe and get them returned if they are lost or stolen.
  • When out shopping push your purse to the bottom of your bag and zip it securely, wallets should not be carried in back pockets.
  • Consider installing a door bell camera, internal camera and/or monitored burglar alarm.
  • Install ‘dusk to dawn’ external lighting and use timer switches in your home to control internal lights, radios and a simulated TV.

Between the hours of 1pm and 9pm on Saturday 2nd December 2017, on the occasion of the Kings Langley Christmas Light Switch On, Kings Langley High Street will be closed at its junction with Vicarage Lane and Hempstead Road will be closed at its junction with Common Lane. The Nap will be closed at a point up to 50m east of the High Street.

Please don't park in the High Street after 12pm, but shops will remain open for business all afternoon, with most of them open during the event as well.

Please consider alternative routes to get around Kings Langley because neighbouring roads will be very busy.

Dear Watch Member,

The run up to Christmas is the busiest time for shoppers …and the busiest time for online fraudsters too. These seasonal scammers take advantage of the fact that you’re very busy and looking for a bargain.

Here are some easy-to-follow safety tips to help protect you from getting caught out by seasonal shopping scams:

  • Before making any purchases, ensure the shopping site you’re on is authentic. Research unfamiliar retailers online to learn from other customers’ experiences.
  • If something seems too much of a bargain…it probably is! It could well be of poor quality, not as described, or even non-existent.
  • Ensure the payment page is secure by checking that the address starts with ‘https’ (‘s’ is for secure) and there’s a closed padlock in the address bar.
  • Never pay by transferring money directly to people or companies you don’t know, however desperate you are to buy. The safest way to pay online is by credit card. Alternatively, use a secure payment site such as PayPal – but beware phoney PayPal emails.
  • When you’ve ?nished your payment, log out of your account, as simply closing the page may not end your session.
  • Watch out for emails or texts from parcel delivery asking you to open an attachment for your delivery note. A real delivery wouldn’t do this. Unexpected emails or texts urging you to click on a link for any reason should be treated with caution.
  • Take care not to get duped into buying counterfeit products. Similarly, do not buy them intentionally, as they contravene copyright law, cost livelihoods of authentic workers, can be of poor quality, or dangerous.

Dear Watch Member,

We have had 2 burglary’s/attempted burglary’s in the past two weeks – both involved the patio doors to the rear of the properties.

Belham Road, between 09.30 and 19.15 on Monday 13th November a property in Belham Road had a pane of glass in the patio doors broken, fortunately the 2 pane in the double glazed unit remained intact and entry was not made. Crime number D1/17/9194

Blackwell road, between Sunday 12th and the following Friday (17th) a property on Blackwell road was broken into, entry was made via the patio doors to the rear of the property. It is believed that the offender/s may have been disturbed as at this time the only belongings taken seem to be a very small amount of 20p’s – a laptop and various other items where untouched. Crime Number D1/17/9327

If you saw or heard anything for either of the two offences please call the police via the 101 number quoting the crime number shown.
