Policing priorities for Hertsmere set for next three months

8 Apr 2021
  • Safer Neighbourhood Team set priorities for the next three months.

  • Your feedback helps to shape priorities.

  • Share your views via the community voice platform ‘echo’.

The Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) in Hertsmere have set the policing priorities to focus on over the next three months.

The SNT is responsible for fixing short and long-term neighbourhood issues such as anti-social behaviour and they work with local partners, including the council, to ensure that the borough is a safe place to live and work.

The following priorities have been set and a dedicated team of PCs and PCSOs will be working to address them:

Borehamwood and Elstree

  • Anti-social behaviour (ASB) and criminal damage at The Point in Borehamwood and surrounding area
  • Anti-social behaviour and associated crime around Manor Way shops in Borehamwood.

Bushey and Radlett

  • Anti-social behaviour in and around Park Avenue and Bushey North
  • Anti-social behaviour in and around Battlers Green ‘Drive’, Phillimore Court and Scrubbitts Square in Radlett

Potters Bar and Shenley

  • Unlawful use of e-scooters across Potters Bar
  • Speeding in Shenley, including Porters Park Drive, Black Lion Hill, London Road and Green Street
  • Graffiti and vandalism around Potters Bar

Safer Neighbourhood Inspector Rachael Robertson said: “These priorities have been set following responses from residents using our public feedback service echo and I thank them for taking the time in sharing what matters most to them. It’s really useful to understand what you would like to see from us.

“We will review these again in three months but in the meantime, you can still provide us with feedback using echo. It’s important to note that some comments we receive are about things that aren’t police matters, such as parking and litter, however we do pass these comments to our partner agencies, such as Hertsmere Borough Council so that they are aware and can look to tackle them.”

You can use our community voice platform ‘echo’ to let us know what you think we should be prioritising in your area. Your feedback will help towards shaping our local policing priorities, initiatives and campaigns. Visit one of the following links and tell us your thoughts:
