Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.
I have added a new email address below.  The first email address is directly to your local Neighbourhood Team.  The second is to our investigation team.  Please use it to send any intelligence / video doorbell / CCTV footage you may have, which is relevant to any of the crimes lists below - quoting the reference number.
Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email -
25/8  Tuesday 10 p.m. / 2.15 p.m. Supermarket Car Park, London Road.  Van break - locks drilled.  Equipment and tools stolen.  Ref. No:  43200265995
24/8 - 25/8  Monday 10 a.m. / Tuesday 6 a.m.  Sunninghill Road.  A LandRover Defender 300 T from 1994, has had parts stripped from it, including headlights, radiator guard, front grills and indicators.  Fixing bits etc. left in the road.  Ref. No:  43200266030

FIRST:  An email sent to Brian, supposedly from the DVLA, confirming his application to register his car as SORN and offering a refund on the current car tax !
If you place your curser over the LINK - you will see where any email would actually go.  In this case - it is not to the DVLA - but an email address in Belize !!!
Always do that, as your first step, to see if an email is genuine.  If you use the cursor and can see the email will go to the DVLA, at a site which is secure - in which case, the address should start with ‘https’ - the s on the end, means it is a secure site.  If it is just ‘http’, it is not secure and if it is supposed to be a bank, government site or large real organisation - it won’t be genuine !
If you get one of these, don’t click on the link to cancel the email or find out more - it is fake email - bin it !

NEXT:  From ‘B’,
I received a letter to my Wife, who has been deceased, since 2005.
The letter is from a company claiming that underground electric cables cross the garden at my address.
They say, they will obtain from the Electricity[PJ1]  company, an rental agreement for 15 years and I will receive the sum of £150.
The electricity company they mention, after some checks, does not seem to exist.  My property was built in 1963 and this has never been mentioned before!
I think it is a scam. I have not responded and will shred it.
Have heard of this ?.
I haven’t - has anyone else out there received anything similar ???
NEXT:  ‘K’ has received a letter from an Italian Lottery - addressed to her as Lucky Winner !
Hi Jeff,
I have just received a flyer through the post from an Italian Lottery compay.  Apart from the fact I’ve never bought a lottery ticket from these people, it’s addressed to “Lucky Winner”.
I doubt such a genuine big win would be addressed like that.
Sorry - if you get one of these - just bin it.  If you don’t enter - you cannot win !!!

The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit to no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit and enter your postcode. 

For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at
