Main article content
On Saturday (5 March) officers from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team visited 220 homes in Hatfield Garden Village as part of a dedicated community engagement day.
Residents were able to discuss with local officers any concerns they had regarding anti-social behaviour and other matters they felt were having an impact on their quality of life.
Officers provided crime prevention advice and signed up around 100 residents to the messaging service OWL (Online Watch Link) which police use to send out alerts about crime and local issues.
Information was also provided on how residents could feed back their views on local policing using echo, the constabulary’s community voice platform, which is then used to help shape policing in the local area.
PC Andrew Dockerill, from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said “Now that we’re coming out of the pandemic, we are looking forward to making days like this a regular part of our neighbourhood policing activities again.
“If there are matters that you want us to know about now, please don’t wait for us to visit your area. Go to echo and tell us what matters most to you.
