Want to report a doorstep criminal



Be alert to doorstep criminals in various areas

We have had reports from the local Community Warden of residents in Sevenoaks, Hartley and Tunbridge Wells being cold-called by people claiming to be part of an ex-offenders scheme and trying to sell household items.

When residents decline they become verbally aggressive.

What to do

  • If you feel threatened or they refuse to leave call Kent Police on 999
  • To report an incident call the Police on 101
  • The probation services DO NOT ask ex-offenders to cold call residents or sell items door to door.

Please warn vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.
