THAMES VALLEY COMMUNITY MESSAGING – Oxford – B_06/02/10


This message is sent to you on behalf of PC Jan Robinson the Crime Reduction Officer for Oxford City.
There have been several offenses over the past few weeks just outside Oxford City where offenders pretending to be Police Officers have tricked elderly people into opening the door. The most recent case was near Bicester last night. The current story is that there are people in the garden and that the Police have retrieved money from them and need to check if it belongs to the householder. Apparently the bogus Police Officers are wearing uniform similar to official Police uniform and carrying ID cards. Please be extra vigilant and remind any particularly vulnerable or elderly neighbours not to let anyone in even if they say they are from the police without checking first. The best way to check if the Police Officer is genuine is to 1)ask the Officer for their name and number 2)ring the Police Control room to check if they are legitimate on 0845 8 505 505. Any genuine police officer won’t mind waiting.
