Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police





FIRST: Our first theft of an electric car, which has been stolen from Maidenhead !  The thieves obviously stole it to order and knew how to open, start it, drive it away as well as how to de-activate the computer tracker system !

22/8  Sunday 3 a.m.  Bray.  Theft of a new grey Jaguar index LD ** TEV  . Caller has CCTV, however it is not very clear, but shows two shadowy figures around the car which was charging on the drive. The offenders broke the charger, cut the cable and have driven it away. . The aggrieved still has the keys to and there is a tracker on the vehicle.  Jaguar have confirmed the offenders have de-activated the Tracker !

NEXT: I circulated a request on Friday from Danielle Lane from Abri, re two projects she is running – One was a jobshop evening each Wednesday at the Pump Room, in Sawyers Close, Windsor.

The other was for Webinars to start your own business.  The webinars take place on TEAMS, which is a similar App to Zoom.  I was concerned that many of you not already working for an organisation, will never have heard of TEAMs, let alone have downloaded the App.  I asked what anyone interested should do ?

She has responded:

Thank you, Jeff
Teams is accessible through a web link if you have a link to a meeting and we have instructions from all devices that we can provide.
Hope this helps, happy to take lots of queries too 😊
Many Thanks

So, if you are interested and make contact with Danielle, she will send you the LINK.  The contact details were on the posters I attached to Friday’s message – but here they are again: – 0800 432 0570

NEXT:  Should you think about getting a Video Doorbell ?

I have received this from – another – Jeff, who is happy for me to share the link, showing the offender stealing his parcel – it is a little way into the clip
Hi Jeff
We have just had a package stolen from our doorstep and I have it on my video doorbell. I am out of the country at the moment.

I thought you might like to see the footage.

If you are considering getting one – there are many on the market and the choice may be confusing – so our Volunteer Video Doorbell volunteers have produced a website with the most frequently asked questions:

Valerie Pike – the Chair of the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association - will be very happy to assist further and refer you to a Guru, once you have visited the site:

NEXT:  We have received a report about someone perhaps holding themselves out – or purporting to be a solicitor and accepting legal work.

Before consulting a ‘solicitor’ you do not know, you can check their bona fides by making contact with the SRA – The Solicitors Regulation Authority

They have issued this Guidance:

Before engaging the services of any solicitor, I would encourage you to verify their credentials first. You can do so via the SRA Solicitors Register, which can be found here:, or The Law Society ‘Find a Solicitor’ service, here:

They also publish to a Scam alert section, which can be found here:


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.

Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email -





Please consider using our online reporting system but please note this reporting tool is not for use where a crime happening right now, the suspect is still at the scene, or anyone seriously injured or in immediate danger.

Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
