(2 votes)

The following appeal has been received by LOSRA and we are pleased to reproduce it here:

Olympic Games - LondonSurrey Police is appealing to members of the public to come forward with information that could help the Force deliver a safe and secure Olympic Games.

With Surrey hosting the Torch Relay, Cycle Road Races and Cycle Time Trial, many people will be visiting the county during Games time. This makes Surrey attractive to some individuals or groups, who see it as an opportunity to commit crime, or disrupt the events in the county.

Planning for the Games has been ongoing for a number of years, and a lot of work has gone in to ensuring the county remains safe - but we need the public to remain vigilant. If you hear anything, or see anything, including information on the internet that you think looks suspicious or causes you concern, please let us know.

If you do have information to report please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) by dialling 101. To find out your local SNT, simply add your postcode into the Surrey Police website www.surrey.police.uk , or if you own a Smartphone, you can download the Surrey Police app, by searching for Surrey Police in the App Store or Google Play. Alternatively you can report online by visiting www.surrey.police.uk. If you’d prefer to remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or report online by visiting www.crimestoppers-uk.org

If you’re planning on going to any of the events then please ensure you plan your journey as there will be disruption on the roads. Make sure you keep your valuables safe, and let a friend or relative know where you’re going and what time you expect to return.

Chief Superintendent Gavin Stephens said:

“First and foremost, we want the Olympics to be enjoyed by everyone. If you’re going to an event, please visit www.gosurrey.info for useful information, and travel news.

We have been planning for this event for years and a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure the county remains a safe place to live, work and visit.

We’re getting closer to the start of the Games now and it is vital we disrupt those intent on committing crime or using the Games as a platform to protest. If you have any information please contact us, even if you think it might be nothing, we will judge if the information you have is useful intelligence. For more safety and security advice, please visit www.surrey.police.uk/olympics. You can also follow your local SNT on Facebook and Twitter.”

Call 101 for all non-emergency policing matters.

Call 999 if you have a genuine emergency requiring the attendance of the police (eg a crime is in progress or someone is in immediate danger).

Call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you have information about a crime and don't want to leave your name.
