Welcome to the Hertfordshire
Constabulary website. We hope that you will enjoy the new pages and
extra information we now provide.
This website is under continuous
development and we would welcome any feedback you have about our
site via the feedback form.
Round the clock more than 3,600
police officers and police staff work hard to provide a policing
service to the public of Hertfordshire, supported by more
than 400 Specials.
Together we look at where we can
make the most difference to improving the quality of everyone's
lives, and creating a safer Hertfordshire.
In our work we put our communities
first - we want to be there when victims need us the most and when
criminals don't. But, most importantly, we want people to be safe
and feel safe whether they are in their homes, on the streets or at
work in our county.
The Constabulary polices an area of
632 square miles, with a population of well over a million. The mix
of villages and towns, with some of the busiest roads in Europe,
place a variety of demands on the police. The county's landscape is
also diverse ranging from the urban borders of London to beautiful
National Trust areas.
Headquarters in Welwyn Garden City
provides a support and administrative function for the Constabulary
and is the base for the Chief Constable and his executive team.
Policing of the county is overseen by the Local Policing Command
The Constabulary, policing style
and organisation is designed to provide a modern, flexible force
and an effective policing service for Hertfordshire.
More locally based Neighbourhood
Teams work in local partnerships at ward district and borough
Working with these other agencies
and the public, we have achieved some excellent results. Our low
crime rate means we are one of the safest counties in England and
Despite our successes we can't
afford to be complacent. We have ambition and will continually seek
improvement through listening and learning and looking hard at ways
we can do our job better, so we can achieve safety, justice and
reassurance for all communities.
