INFORMATION FROM MET POLICE

House Burglaries - Friday 11 January


Purley Oaks & Riddlesdown (PO&R) SNT have made us aware of four recent burglaries in the Riddlesdown area. The times would indicate this was on Friday 11 January and maybe into Saturday 12 Jan.


Two burglaries were on Mitchley Avenue and two were on Ingleboro Drive. Access was gained via the rear of property on all occasions. Various items taken from jewellery to laptops.


Forensics have attended and have taken swabs. Two black males aged 15-20 years old were seen hiding in a front garden bush on Ingleboro Drive when a resident called police both had run away prior to police arrival.


If anyone has CCTV cameras in these streets and they are on the front of properties could you please check them for Friday and see if you have any one acting suspiciously and if so then please send the footage to the PO&R SNT. E-mail: PurleyOaks.SNT@met.police.uk


The Police advise, side access and rear of the property are where homes can be vulnerable. Side gates should be secured with a lock/padlock that is not reached by learning your arm over. If the gate is 6ft tall you can consider trellis or intruder excluder spikes on top. Bins should be behind the gate. Rear fences should be secure and can also have intruder excluder or trellis on top as this is not easy for suspects to climb/gain access. Sheds should be secured and do not leave garden tools out that can be used to gain entry.


This is the link to the Police crime prevention advice. There is good advice on locks, security and a walk around house showing what we recommend. https://www.met.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/

ABOUT 112

Need help? 112 is your life-saving number!

112 is the European emergency phone number, available everywhere in the EU, free of charge.

It is possible to call 112 from fixed and mobile phones to contact any emergency service: an ambulance, the fire brigade or the police.

When a person dials 112, a specially trained operator will answer the call. Depending on the national organisation of emergency services, the operator will either deal with the request directly or transfer the call to the most appropriate emergency service.

Operators in many countries can answer the calls not only in their national language, but also in English or French. If the caller does not know where he is, the operator will identify where the person making the call is physically located and will pass it to the emergency authorities so that these can help immediately.

112 operators do not provide traffic and weather reports, general information or answers to queries. Calling 112 as a joke or calling and then hanging up is considered a hoax call. Hoax calls not only waste the time and money of the emergency operators, but can also be dangerous. If 112 lines or call operators are busy with hoax calls, someone with a real emergency may not be able to get the help needed. In most countries, it is a criminal offence to make hoax 112 calls and a person can be judged for that.

112 does not replace the existing (UK 999) national emergency number. In most countries, it operates alongside them. However, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Malta and Romania have opted for 112 as their main national emergency number.
