Have your say on Welwyn Hatfield’s policing priorities
Main article content
The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team would like to hear from the community as they prepare to choose the next set of policing priorities for the borough.
The Welwyn Hatfield 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.
The team, which is split across three ‘beats’, regularly set out priorities for each of the three areas.
The current priorities are:
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, who leads the team, said: “As we start thinking about the next set of priorities, it’s really important that we hear from residents. What do you think we should focus on? Is there a particular problem that you would like us to prioritise?
“We want to know your views and will take them into consideration when we choose the new priorities. Please let us know using echo, our community voice platform, by Thursday 30 June. The priorities will then be announced shortly after.”
