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.

Local Road Closure

Dear Watch Member,

Information from Kings Langley Parish Council:

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.

Dear Watch Member,

The British Red Cross have recently released a free Emergency App for apple and android devices that provides real-time alerts, severe weather warnings and practical advice to the public in preparing for and responding to emergencies. The app can also be set up to provide alerts that may affect family or friends elsewhere in the country. The Constabulary has engaged with the Red Cross on this and would recommend it as an excellent way in helping individuals and communities to prepare for and be informed about local emergencies. It is timely, as winter approaches and severe weather events become more likely, to circulate these details now and we would encourage you to consider downloading and using this app to help ensure you are better informed and prepared.

The British Red Cross are very keen to work with us to help improve the resilience of our communities to deal with such events and to improve what the app offers, so would welcome any feedback users of the app may have.

It can be downloaded from their website http://www.redcross.org.uk/emergencyapp

Dear Watch Member,

Hertfordshire Constabulary is taking part in a national drive to reduce the number of firearms that are vulnerable to falling into criminal hands.

The campaign will run between November 13 and 26, during which members of the public will be encouraged to surrender any firearms in their possession to the police.

Hertfordshire remains one of the safest counties in the country and has little gun crime. However, this operation is being carried out in support of the national campaign, which along with other crime prevention initiatives, will contribute to making Hertfordshire and neighbouring counties safer places in which to live.

The campaign in Hertfordshire is mainly aimed at those who have firearms in their possession that are not licensed, either through inheritance, or that are otherwise unwanted.

If you have a firearm in your possession that you do not want contact the firearms surrender team on 101.

Specially trained officers will then arrange to come and collect the weapon, or advise you on how to apply for the required certificate. Alternatively you can arrange an appointment to bring the weapon to Hatfield Police Station to surrender it during the amnesty.

Members of the public can surrender any firearms, anonymously if they wish, without fear of prosecution for firearms licensing offences, so if you have an unwanted firearm this is the time to get rid of it.

If you own a firearm and would like to discuss applying for a certificate to enable you to continue to own it legally, please call the firearms surrender team on 01707 806126.

Dear Watch Member,

Hertfordshire Constabulary is reminding residents to keep their homes secure and report suspicious behaviour as the afternoon and evenings grow darker.

During the autumn and winter burglaries often increase, so police will be focusing on burglary as a priority with targeted patrols, and also providing residents with advice on home security, property marking and general crime prevention.

Safer neighbourhood officers will be holding crime prevention events across the county giving away free burglary prevention packs and offering advice on keeping homes and valuables safe.

Residents are also being advised to make their homes as secure as possible and consider installing some of the new security devices which have come onto the market lately. There is now a variety of inexpensive security lights and wifi-enabled doorbell cameras and interior cameras fitted with motion sensors, which enable you to monitor your home remotely using your phone.

These kinds of devices can be easily installed for minimal expense and have been successful in thwarting a number of burglaries.

Residents can make their homes more secure by following some basic crime prevention advice such as:

  • Ensure doors are double locked at all times. Keep windows closed and locked.
  • 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.
  • Keep keys and valuables secure and out of sight.
  • Ensure boundary fences are secure with side gates locked. Keep tools and ladders in a locked shed.
  • Join Hertfordshire’s Neighbourhood Watch for alerts and advice: www.owl.co.uk.
  • Visit www.owlprotect.uk for discounts on security products.
  • For crime prevention advice visit www.herts.police.uk/protectyourhome and www.hertscitizensacademy.org.

Dear Watch Member,

Hertfordshire Police are working with the Illegal Money Lending Team (England) to steer residents away from borrowing from loan sharks in the lead up to Christmas.

A loan shark is someone who lends money illegally without the correct authorisation from the Financial Conduct Authority. Loan sharks normally appear friendly at first, but this behaviour soon changes once monies are owed.

It’s easy to fall in to the grip of a loan shark; they seem like friendly people at first, someone who you might refer to as a close neighbour or colleague.

Here at Hertfordshire Police, we understand it can sometimes be scary to ask for help, but if you call the Illegal Money Lending Team (England) on 0300 555 2222, you can speak to a member of the team anonymously or in confidence. They are there to help, not judge, and will let you know what your options are so you can decide what to do.
