Mr Munro’s report relates to the whole of Surrey County. However, with regard to this borough in particular, Spelthorne Beat (Surrey Police) say: “I know it seems like there has been a rise, but there hasn't in Spelthorne. With the public talking about their own experiences on social media and us releasing the local information on the Spelthorne Beat page, you just happen to be hearing about it more so it seems like these incidences are on the rise. Surrey Police are investigating these incidences and where there are opportunities for a positive outcome we will always work to ensure the offenders are dealt with accordingly”.
