Main article content
The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have announced their latest policing priorities.
The SNT are tasked with fixing short and long-term neighbourhood issues such as anti-social behaviour. They work closely with local partners including the council and schools to achieve this.
Every three months, the team set out three priorities each across the wards that make up the borough of Welwyn Hatfield. Last month residents were invited to submit their views on the next set of policing priorities.
The following has been chosen:
Welwyn Hatfield North (led by Sergeant Emma Francis)
Anti-social behaviour in Welwyn Garden City town centre
Anti-social behaviour at Woodhall shops
Speeding in the Digswell Hill area, including Digswell Road, Hertford Road and Station Road
Welwyn Hatfield West (led by Sergeant Alex Smedley)
Anti-social behaviour in Hatfield town centre and the Comet Way/Galleria area
Drugs in Lemsford Road
Graffiti in and around the Hatfield Villages and Birchwood areas
Welwyn Hatfield South (led by Sergeant Dan Bales)
Anti-social behaviour and off-road bikes in Dellsome Lane
Anti-social behaviour in Goldings House
Speed awareness across the area
SNT Inspector Andrew Palfreyman (pictured below) said: “I would like to thank all those who took the time to share their views. Even if your suggestion has not made it into our priorities, please be assured that all feedback is taken on board. We have kept some of the priorities the same as they require longer-term work and we’re confident that good progress is being made to resolve these. I hope you feel reassured by the priorities we have chosen and I encourage you to keep on sending in your feedback by using echo, our community voice platform.”
