CRIME and ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR is more of a problem now than it was a year ago, survey results suggest. Read more on this.

May 2017: "PAY YOU BACK TOMORROW" STORY

Fair-haired teenage boy of slight appearance knocking on doors in Round Hill (tells residents that he is "George" from over the road and that his mum's gone to Wales leaving him with no money.) Asks for £20 and asks to be let in. He asks disarmingly: "is it a good moment?"

Please tell neighbours not to be taken in. 101 report already lodged. Do ring 101 (report a non-emergency) if you get this or a similar visit. Three Round Hill households have reported variations on this incident. Both the fair-haired boy and another dark-haired boy have been knocking on doors asking for money on false pretexts.

Previously, this page was for "eWatch magazine" presenting crime reports and statistics up until the end of the most recently completed month.

We have now lost the Police Community Support Officer who sent this data (together with the useful links below) every month to The Round Hill Society and Ditchling Road Area Residents' Association.

However, the third link (bulleted above) is to a "crime map for our neighbourhood". The data displayed goes back about 3 months. Although it is a pity that we cannot still be given a more recent picture, the effort of mapping crime by neighbourhood is nevertheless appreciated.

How secure is your home?

Daily security

  • Keep all wallets, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.
  • If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows
  • An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars
  • Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name
  • Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler
  • Register your property at www.imobolise.com

After Dark

  • Leave some lights on if it will be dark when you get home
  • When you go out in the evening, always leave a light on in a room that cannot be peered into from the road
  • Fit security lighting that can detect movement

Front Door Security

  • Don’t let anyone into your home that you don’t know. Always ask for identification – official visitors won’t mind being asked
  • for ID
  • Fit a door chain or bar and, if you have a solid front door, a wide angle door viewer

In the Garden

  • Ensure that gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure
  • Trim overgrown plants – don’t give burglars a hiding place
  • Secure garden tools and ladders in a locked shed or garage to prevent them being used to break in to your home.
