Crime Prevention


Hertfordshire remains one of the safest places in the country and the Constabulary is committed to working with local councils, and other groups and organisations, across the county to keep crime low.


Alongside a 24-hour-a-day uniformed police presence, behind the scenes, officers are advising householders and businesses about how to stay safe and secure.


And there are some simple measures that you and your family can follow yourselves to help keep you and your property even safer. The aim of this section is to provide you with some useful information and advice on home security, personal safety, preventing vehicle crime and much more.
