Thames Valley Police is asking the residents of Aylesbury Vale to be vigilant and report any door to door sellers in their area.
Callers can be selling household items or offering home improvements,
such as new driveways or replacement windows. Home improvement work is
often offered without necessary cancellation rights and sales people can
use high pressure selling tactics and target vulnerable or elderly
members of the community.
If you have anyone calling at your address please let the police know
via the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101 (or 999 if a crime is
in progress). Make a note of their description and vehicle details (if
they are using one) and their name if they offer you ID.
Please call in at the time they are in the area – don’t wait and don’t leave it to someone else to make the call!
By calling the Police you will give officers a chance to check out the
sellers and make sure they have appropriate permits to be operating in
Officers would rather have the information and be able to make further
enquiries (even if the person turned out to be legitimate) than not get
the information and find out later that a crime has occurred.
