Crime summary 
Burglary – There are no burglary dwellings or burglary other than dwellings to report this week.
However, the warm weather is coming and it’s time to think about outdoor security. Have you got a strong secure lock on your shed or outbuilding? Have you marked your tools and taken photographs of them? Have you thought about getting a ring doorbell, remember you can fit these out the back as well. If you’ve got CCTV don’t forget to let us know by adding the information to your neighbourhood alert record.
Let’s all have a safe and incident free summer.


As usual our neighbourhood policing team (NPT) were out and about over the last week. This is just a few of the places they visited.

PCSO Jackson was out on patrol in Billingshurst on Wednesday engaging with school students, businesses and neighbourhood wardens.

We would like to thank everyone who got in touch with us after our appeal for information about car windows being broken in the Roffey area. Our investigations are still ongoing but as ever, we would like to remind everyone to lock cars, sheds, garages and outbuildings when they’re not in use.

PCSO Jackson was out again on Thursday, this time in Barns Green. She checked in with businesses as well as having a chat to some local residents.

PCSO Downham spent time outside Warnham primary school on Friday morning after concerns were raised regarding dangerous parking. He had a chat to many of the children and would like to thank a thoughtful resident who left some treats on his car.  

On Saturday PCSO Priest was on foot patrol around Redford Avenue, Victory Rec & Horsham town centre and clearly wanted everyone to know about his steps which he recorded as his twitter picture. One of the comments we received was that it was nice to see an old fashioned plod! We think we know what was meant but it did make us chuckle.

If you would like to contact your local neighbourhood policing team, email them on – please remember this email address is not for reporting crime, please see our website on the many ways you can contact us.
News and appeals 
Motorcyclists reminded dangerous or antisocial riding will not be tolerated.

A shocking video has been re-released as we remind motorcyclists about the significant risks associated with antisocial riding. We welcome careful and considerate riding, but we will deal robustly with anyone who compromises road safety.

Police provide education, engagement and enforcement to all motorists 365 days a year, and the vast majority of road users travel safely and competently.

But with the warmer weather and the easing of lockdown restrictions likely to lead to more traffic on our roads, officers are urging bikers in particular to stay safe.

Motorcyclists represent almost a quarter of all fatal and serious injury collisions – despite making up only five per cent of vehicles on our roads.

We’re also urging the public to share our social media messaging over the next three weeks, which will encourage motorcyclists to enjoy the ride responsibly, considerately and safely.
We will also be supporting the National Police Chiefs’ Council’s annual two-wheeled campaign – aimed to reduce the number of collisions involving motorcyclists through education and enforcement – from Tuesday 6 April to Sunday 18 April.

For advice on riding safely, visit the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership website.
To report an incident of dangerous or antisocial driving or riding, visit the Operation Crackdown website.
Please read the full story and see the video on our website.
