Officers from the North Herts Safer Neighbourhood Team joined colleagues from settle housing, the Nightingale Park Association and HACRO, for a clean-up event in Baldock on Monday 15 August.
PCs Jane Keating and Natasha Redman, and PCSO Frankie Mitchell, braved the heat to help clear brambles and hedges and give the area a general tidy up.
PC Keating said: “This park is an area where there has been an issue with anti-social behaviour (ASB) so I decided to contact our partner agencies and organise a project where we could target areas such as this one.
“The aim is to tidy it up and make it appealing for parents and local residents to use, which we hope will help prevent ASB occurring, along with SNT patrols. This is our pilot area for the project, and if it is a success, we plan to target other areas in North Herts in the same way.”
