Bulletin 12 June 6th – June 18th 2019 Dear Neighbourhood Watch Members We have, and are, upping the ante on our community engagement involvements, where we have direct meet and speak opportunities with many of you at public events. Local events, such as the Cowpie, and Blindley Heath shows, have found us there with some of our personnel. We will also be at such events as the Caterham Festival and the Edenbridge and Oxted Shows. Our volunteers have also been saddle security marking at a number of meetings with particular success. Our Specialist Rural PCSO is also out and about meeting with representatives of our farming communities and was also at the recent Oxted show. Your Safety Neighbourhood Community PCSO’s are holding Surgeries at local venues and these will be advertised on Social Media. Now that the summer is here, and many of you will be parking your cars at these and other events; I would reiterate previous advice and ask you not to leave any valuables on show within the car. It is an invitation to smash your car window.
