Digital Switchover - Beware of Doorstep Callers

The Crystal Palace television transmitter is due to switch to a digital signal on 4th and 18th April 2012. Most television aerials will be able to receive the improved signal, and providing televisions are either already digital, or have a digital box connected, they will also be able to receive a signal after switchover, once they have been retuned.

Householders should therefore beware of doorstep callers informing them that their aerials or other equipment will not be suitable for digital. If in doubt contact a local aerial specialist who is CAI approved (Confederation of Aerial Industries), or an electrical retailer.

Anyone who has not yet converted their set and is eligible for the Help Scheme because they are over 75, claiming or entitled to claim Disability Living Allowance, is blind or partially sighted, or is living in a care home for more than 6 months, should contact the Help scheme or call free 0800 40 85 900. Further information on the switchover can be found on www.digitaluk.co.uk or call 08456 50 50 50.

Thank you.

Email Scam - Population Census

We are aware that an email entitled 'Population Census: a message to everyone - act now' is being circulated, allegedly in the name of National Statistician, Jil Matheson. This email demands individuals provide further personal information, supposedly for the Census and threatens fines for non-compliance.
This email is a scam and a hoax. It has no connection whatsoever with the National Statistician, the 2011 Census or the Office for National Statistics.

We believe the links in the email could download malware to any computer where the user clicks on the links. This could put your personal data, including financial information, at risk.

Anyone receiving this, or similar emails, should delete them, not open any links and certainly not provide any information.

For more information on how to protect yourself from this type of threat, please see www.getsafeonline.org
If you wish to, please report receipt of any such suspicious at www.actionfraud.org.uk

ONS takes the protection of personal census information extremely seriously. Collection of census data was completed last year and no further requests will be forthcoming from the Office for National Statistics relating to the 2011 Census.

Thank you.

Theft from Motor Vehicles

The Chiltern Local Policing Area are experiencing an increasing amount of theft from motor vehicles whereby victims are leaving valuable items such as handbags and electrical goods in their vehicles and on display whilst they are spending just minutes visiting addresses.
Offenders are not only targeting insecure vehicles but forcing entry into the vehicle to steal these items. This is a reminder to the public not to leave any valuables in the vehicle no matter how brief your visit. Also, ensure that doors and windows are locked at all times.

Thank you.
