Report suspicious, or potential burglary related, behaviour to Surrey Police with supporting video and/or photographs.
We’re asking Surrey residents to help us reduce the number of burglary offences in Surrey by submitting any video footage (such as CCTV, dashcam, or smart doorbell footage) and photographs which show suspicious activity via our suspicious activity portal.
Although realistically we may not be able to identify every person in a piece of footage, especially if they have a face covering, every clip feeds into our understanding of the bigger burglary picture in Surrey.
The portal is for circumstances where a no crime has been reported, but the suspicious behaviour could potentially be related to a burglary, theft of a vehicle, or catalytic converter, for example.
In the long-term we hope that this initiative will help us reduce the number of burglary offences and provide reassurance to residents.
What is suspicious activity?
Examples of suspicious activity might include:
Someone who you may consider to be a trespasser or prowler looking in vehicles or car doors
Scoping out addresses
Conducting occupancy checks prior to a burglary
Burglars look for any opportunity to break into vehicles and homes and find vulnerabilities in security.
Please note that you should not submit footage where an offence has taken place, e.g. you can see that entry has been gained, or that property has been taken. If you have this type of footage, you need to make a crime report which you can do via the homepage > report.
Please click on the relevant borough in which the video or photography was captured to submit your footage:
