Residents are invited to meet their local police officers on Saturday (4 February) as they host crime prevention stalls in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield.
The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team are hosting stalls at the following locations:
John Lewis, Welwyn Garden City – 2pm to 6pm
The Galleria, Hatfield – 2pm to 7pm
PC Cameron Abraham said: “We’ll be running two crime prevention stalls and are hopeful that lots of residents will be able to come along.
“We’ll be issuing crime prevention advice and there’ll also be some free security devices available to take home.
“Events like these are a perfect opportunity for you to speak to us about local policing issues. What would you like to see us prioritising? Where would you like to see more patrols? Come along and let us know.”
At the Galleria, the team will be upstairs by the customer service desk.
At John Lewis, the team plan to be by the Menswear department but this is subject to change.
