- and be entered into a prize draw
Voter registration forms will be dropping through letterboxes across the Royal Borough from 10 July onwards - and residents are urged to respond as soon as possible to ensure they are listed on the new register and are eligible to vote in the new Police and Crime Commissioner elections to be held on 15 November.
All residential properties will receive the voter registration forms in the coming weeks as part of the annual canvass - and any residents who have not received their form by Friday 20 July should contact the Electoral Services helpline on 01628 683868. The information returned will be used to compile the revised electoral register which will be published in October.
Maria Lucas, electoral registration officer, said: "Registering to vote is very simple and should take no more than 15 minutes of your time.
"This year we have introduced a prize draw for those who respond online or by telephone or SMS text. These can be used by those households where there are NO changes required to the information we already hold. If there are changes you should complete the registration form and return it in the pre-paid envelope supplied in the pack.
"Last year 15,250 households responded electronically and we hope this year's prize draw will encourage you to join the growing band of householders responding this way. One lucky household will win £100 worth of vouchers of their choice. To be automatically entered you must respond by Friday 3 August. If you don't respond you may lose your vote."
Electors can choose to have their details excluded from the edited register - this means their details cannot be bought by individuals and commercial organisations. Details of this are on the reverse of the form and the additional guidance notes in the pack.
For more information contact the borough's electoral registration helpline on 01628 683868.

On Saturday afternoon while on my shift in the Town centre with Greg (one of his team) we spotted a crowd gathered around someone in Peascod Street in front of the Daniels development. It turned out to be someone running a variation of “spot the lady”. He had three small boxes in front of him and was inviting the audience to place bets on where he placed the marker. He had quite a crowd round him and what seemed like a pile of bank notes in one hand. Needless to say, when we approached him, he made off into the crowd with an associate close at hand to have the money palmed to him. He cursed me in what I took to be an eastern European language! He was late forties/early fifties; about 5’10’’ wearing a shirt with green hoops around it and jeans. He had short greying hair and a short beard.
This is something I have never seen in Windsor before and it is a serious offence under s. 3 Gambling Act 2005. The maximum sentence is 51 weeks in prison and/or a £5,000 fine.
I shall be grateful if everyone can keep a look out for this individual and any further instances of illegal gambling activity.

Here are some results of Intelligence interviews with offenders that have been caught stealing bikes from Windsor. We know most of the bikes have had their locking devices cut with bolt croppers – very large pairs of pliers that can cut through metal. The thieves are carrying these in the bottom of a back pack. A hole has been cut in the bottom of the back pack, so that if they see a bike they like, they kneel down beside it place the back pack on the ground and appear to be searching for something inside. In fact, they are operating the bolt croppers from inside the back pack, via the hole in the bottom. They then collect up the chain, place it in the back pack and ride off on the bike !!! SO – you know what to look for! Anything like this is an immediate call on the 101 number.

A reminder that all suspicious incidents MUST BE PHONED THROUGH TO THE POLICE AT THE TIME – NOT THE NEXT DAY. That way we can assess the situation, what officers we have on and where they are. Please remember, we have response teams on in Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During the early hours they are driving around continuously in areas we believe are suffering from crime – our hotspots – which are suffering most crime, or from which we receive most calls. That way we can respond as quickly as possible, where we think we may be needed. We manage the projection on a daily basis. We generally therefore have someone to respond to your call unless a crime of greater priority happens at the same time.
Please phone and let us make the decision.
I mention all this because the following email arrived in my inbox yesterday:
A neighbour has just knocked on our door to alert us to the fact that three men were wondering around his property last night at 1 a.m.
Another neighbour also saw them and shouted at them from his bedroom window. He asked them what they were doing on private property and they immediately ran off.
‘We will be vigilant but thought you should know’.
I asked if the incident was reported to the police? The answer was NO!
If you don’t want to bother us because they have not broken into your house or done anything wrong or gone away, please think about your neighbours who may not be so fortunate. I would have dialled 999 if I spotted people in my garden at 1 a.m. We would have put on a 'containment', carried out an area search to locate the men and find out what they were up to at that time of the morning. THIS IS THE SECOND SUCH INCIDENT I HAVE REPORTED IN ABOUT A WEEK! We must all do our bit! It takes seconds to dial 999 (for a suspected crime in progress) or 101 for less urgent calls. At that time of the morning, they will not be inundated with calls. If we had caught and chatted to them last night, they may think better than to be out again in this area. We have to show these people that we are on the ball!

21/8 Tuesday 7.45 p.m. An owner locked their bike into a bike rack on the Eton Bridge and went for a walk. When they returned, the bike was still there and they then went for a boat ride. On returning, they saw their bike being wheeled away by a man and a woman. He challenged and detained them, while he called the police. There were extra officers nearby, due to a police operation in the town following residents concerns about thefts in the centre. They received a call re the incident over the police radio and attended immediately. They arrested a man and a woman.
TWO CASES OF HANDBAGS BEING DIPPED AND PURSES STOLEN IN THE TOWN CENTRE
28/08 4:35 p.m.. The aggrieved along with a friend, was walking from the shopping centre down the stairway to the coach park, with her handbag over her shoulder. A person came and stepped in front of her, slowing her down. She also noticed someone behind her, but no physical contact was made. She believes that the man behind, unzipped her handbag and removed her purse. She was unaware her purse had been stolen, until she reached her car. She immediately cancelled her cards, but was informed by the bank that there had been several unsuccessful attempts to use the cards. She cannot describe the man behind her, but the man in front was- Eastern European in appearance, about 50 years old, 5’6’’, plump, bald, wearing a dark jumper and grey trousers.
THE SECOND USED THE METHOD I HAVE BEEN PUBLICISING FOR MONTHS – UNFORTUNATELY OUR TOURISTS DON’T RECEIVE MY MESSAGES – IF YOU SEE ANYONE SITTING HAVING COFFEE IN THE TOWN, WITH THEIR MOBILE SITTING ON THE TABLE – PLEASE BE A GOOD CITIZEN AND ASK A WAITER / WAITRESS TO WARN THEM?
28/8 12.50 p.m. – 1.30 p.m. Café in the Town Centre. 2 people were sitting at the table having lunch. A man approached the table and spread some greetings cards across it. They declined to purchase any and the man gathered the cards up and walked away. One then noticed their mobile phone which had been on the table was missing !!! They ran after the man shouting and he simply handed it back ! He is described as Eastern European in appearance, quite tall, dark spiky well groomed hair, clean looking, wearing a polo shirt, slightly woolly in texture and dark trousers. The police attended and carried out an area search but the man was not located.
Tamara (Town Centre Sgt Tamara Tatton) is organising a Crime Prevention session on Saturday in the Town Centre to combat dipping and a Burglary Road show next Wednesday 5th September in the Atrium of Waitrose, between 12 noon – 2 p.m. If you have not collected your purse bells from the police station, she will have some there.

Many of you have been in NHW for many years and will remember the work we all did for the ‘Safe as Houses’ Initiative funded by the Home Office 3 or 4 years ago. Many of you will have joined us after that took place. As part of our bid we produced short videos of various security devices we felt would be really useful to our members to combat crime and placed them on YouTube. Under the initiative, we made these available free of charge – but those days are long gone, in the current economic climate. We feel those items are still really useful and I am therefore promoting the short videos for you to view. The PCSO explaining how each piece of equipment is used, is our own PCSO Dave Bullock, from the Inner Windsor Neighbourhood Team. There are also two short ‘Into clips’ which have brief details of all the items described. These, feature Ch. Supt. Tim De Meyer our Area Commander at the time, who is now responsible for Neighbourhood Policing at HQ. All the equipment for the bid was supplied by SOLON who run a retail arm – Redline Security to see the stock, or call on 01352 762266. You can purchase at email Solon Security

12/9 Wednesday 2.30 a.m. The owner of a car was awoken by their alarm sounding and the car lights flashing. They looked out and saw two youths wearing hooded tops, running away. She phoned the police who were patrolling in the area and attended immediately. Two people were located in a road nearby and arrested. The owner checked the car and found nothing had been stolen and the car was not damaged in any way. What they did find, was that the car fob did set the alarm – BUT DID NOT LOCK THE CAR! We have had several cases recently where people were convinced they had locked their cars, but they were entered ‘BY UNKNOWN MEANS’ – meaning there was no damage. For insurance purposes the car would be classified as LEFT INSECURE. If, as in this case, there are occasions where your fob will cause the car lights to flash and set the alarm, but not lock the car – it is even more vital that you check a car door handle.
