Surrey Police

Surrey Police tell us they would rather investigate a suspected burglary than be called when it’s too late, so if you see something suspicious in action in your street, dial 999 to let them know.

Is it nothing? Or is it the information we need to catch a burglar?  By working closely with the public to gain information about suspicious activity, our Police can increase the intelligence they use to actively hunt and catch burglars.  Suspicious activity could be:

• Jumping over walls or fences
• Hanging around a house
• Suspicious selling of goods
• Peering through windows or doors
• Running from a scene

Burglary has significantly reduced locally, helped by Surrey residents protecting themselves by securing their properties, ensuring doors are locked, and lights are left on. However, even with this decrease, we still want Surrey to be a no go area for potential burglars.
