Can you help us find those responsible for placing hate crime stickers in Tandridge?
Officers are appealing for help to identify whoever is responsible for circulating hate crime stickers across New Road in Smallfield, near Smallfield Evangelical Church.
Small stickers containing an offensive comment about refugees have been placed on various lamp posts, phone boxes and garages.
Sergeant Lyndsey Whatley, of the Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We are currently investigating reports from members of the public regarding suspicious stickers being placed in various locations across the Smallfield town centre.
“We have increased local high visibility patrols and actively urging anyone who has spotted these stickers being placed or witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area or been asked to print these labels to contact us immediately.”
“There is no place for intolerance and racism in our society and we take a firm stance against anyone who carries out these offences.”
