Spelthorne Burglary Update

Rate this item
(5 votes)

Following the recent release of national reported crime statistics and those of the Crime Survey for England and Wales, residents may be mystified as to why regular burglary updates from Surrey Police have not recently been posted on their Facebook page (Spelthorne Beat – Surrey Police).

The following explanation has been posted:

“As some of you may have noticed these updates have not been released over the last couple of months. This was due to complaints that the information being shared was causing fear and alarm amongst the community. This is in no way our intention.

“Due to this the Spelthorne Beat team have discussed the Pros and Cons and felt that despite a small number of the community stating they would like the posts to stop, the majority of people who contacted us wanted to see the return of the posts and felt their release was beneficial.

“We would like to stress that we are not telling you this to scare you but to educate you and hopefully get some information from anyone who may have witnessed any of the incidents we discuss.

“One thing to remember, and this is of the upmost importance, is that you are not at more risk today then you were yesterday or will be tomorrow. These incidences are not significantly on the rise and there is not a crime spree. It just seems that way because you now know about it whereas you didn't before.
 
“Whilst ignorance may be bliss, knowledge is also power. And by you having this knowledge you now have the power to better protect yourself and your property.”
