If you live in Royston Town or the rural areas around it, and are interested in how your community is policed, then your local officers want to hear from you. They want to know your views on what issues you think they should be focussing on for the next six months.
The Safer Neighbourhood Teams work with local communities, dealing with short and long-term neighbourhood issues, such as anti-social behaviour and criminal damage. They also work in partnership with other local agencies including North Herts Council, to tackle many of the ongoing problems.
A public meeting is being held in Room 11, Royston Town Hall between 7.30-8.30pm on Tuesday 30 August 2022. All local residents are invited to attend and discuss any issues they may have.
The current local priorities for Royston Town and Rural Royston are:
Theft from cars and vans
Youth related ASB
If you cannot make the meeting, but would still like your views to be considered, you can use OWL – the Online Watch Link and ‘echo’ - the community voice platform, to submit feedback between Monday 22 and Sunday 28 August 2022.
To use echo (opens in a new window) go to- https://bit.ly/police-royston. All feedback is anonymous, so if you are referring to a specific location please include as much information as possible.
If you are a member of OWL - our Online Watch Link – you can also complete our special priority setting survey which will have been emailed to you. If you are not already a member and want to sign up to complete the survey and also receive police messages about a range of topics including burglaries, scams and missing people in your local area, go to OWL (Opens in a new window).
“We need input from our local communities to help us capture all of the issues that are impacting on them,” explained Royston Neighbourhood Sergeant Jon Vine.
“This will enable us to allocate resources where they are needed most. Often there can be an issue that is really affecting a local community, but it has not been officially reported to us, so we might not be aware as to how bad a situation has become. We hope to capture any missing intelligence through this feedback process.”
If you need any further information, please contact the Royston Safer Neighbourhood Teams via email: [email protected] or by calling 101.
