E-mails received from the Purley Oaks and Riddlesdown and Sanderstead SNT Teams - Update 3/7/19


"Dear Purley Oaks & Riddlesdown and Sanderstead Ward members,


Thank you for the information that you are giving us recently relating to suspicious vehicles, people knocking on doors (rogue traders) and crimes that are happening in the area. This is very much appreciated and helps us help you.


In relation to the information you are providing us, if we could ask for a little bit more, for example, any descriptions of the people involved, when these people leave, the direction they go off in and if they go towards any vehicles. If they do, definitely try and get the registration of the vehicles which will hopefully give us something to go on.


Please do not put yourself at risk when getting this information and only get it if at all possible. We do understand that sometime the registration marks may be false but this does help us as a service build a picture of what is happening and where. If there is no registration then please state this as well so we know that it has been considered. I know that there is many different forms of CCTV available now as well whether it be house CCTV, car Dashcams etc. We would also like to view these as well as it will assist us with suspect linking and identification.


To assist with this and so we can make it easier to get to see all of your available footage. We are hoping to create a new “box” folder. This folder is an online account (similar to dropbox for those who know what that is but is our own version) where you can upload your footage so we can look at it directly. We would still need you to keep the original (for legal reasons). Once we have the details we will share it with you all.


Thank you again for all of your help and support and if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Yours Faithfully,


PCSO David Eaton - PO&R Team


PC Robert Brett - Sanderstead Local Police Team


PC Rebecca Gabauskas


PCSO Sam Brooks"

Catalytic Converter Thefts - Update 30/11/19

Information from Sanderstead SNT (but also applies to the PO&R Ward/SNT) in Riddlesdown:


"Dear Ward Member,


Over the last week or so we have seen an increase in motor vehicle offences. Catalytic Converters are being stolen from specific vehicles.


Makes & Models being targeted - (All Hybrid vehicles)





How the theft works:

A catalytic converter is located in a box on the exhaust pipe under a car. In order to steal it, thieves slide under the car and use high-powered cutting tools to detach the box from the pipes around it.


 The metals are expensive and includes metals such as palladium, rhodium, and platinum. The thieves sell the converters for a couple of hundred per piece, depending on the size of the converter and the current rate on the metals inside it. It could cost you up to £2000 to replace a catalytic converter, and it is illegal to drive your car without one.


What we advise:






If you own one of the above makes, look to speak to your manufacturer about in a "Catloc", a device which makes it harder for thieves to detach the catalytic converter from the bottom of the car.


You should also register your converter and mark it with a forensic marker, which will make it harder for thieves to dispose of. Visit securedbydesign.com for more details.


Kind Regards,


PCSO Sam Brooks

Sanderstead SNT"

Surveys from Purley Oaks & Riddlesdown and Sanderstead SNT's

November 2019


"Dear Ward Panel Member,


Ward Panels play an important role in our Safer Neighbourhoods strategy. They allow representatives from the local community to tell us about local crime and disorder concerns which in turn allows the SN Teams to collaboratively establish priorities that are intended to match those community concerns.


The Metropolitan Police Service is also committed to working with academics, industry, private and public sector experts to develop a stronger understanding of the effect and impact of race upon public confidence in the MPS. This will enable the MPS to implement bespoke research initiatives to improve any negative public perception and deliver an equitable service across London's diverse communities.


The objectives of our inclusion strategy are to:


Make the Met more reflective of the city we serve

Develop our culture, behaviour and internal processes

Reduce inequalities in our interactions with Londoners


To effectively measure representation across our ward panel members and the communities you represent we gratefully request that you complete this short survey, which will assist us to improve our current methods of engagement.


The survey is split into 2 sections of questions surrounding you and the diversity of communities you represent.

This should take no more than two minutes to complete.

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.
