Officers from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team will be attending a community warm space in Hatfield to engage with residents and offer crime prevention advice.
St Michael’s Church, in Birchwood Avenue, hosts a warm space every Tuesday from 10am to 1pm. The aim is to provide locals with a warm and safe environment where they can gather to socialise. Free tea and coffee is also provided.
PCs Darren Turner and Andrew Dockerill will be visiting between 11am and 1pm on Tuesday 7 March and Tuesday 18 April.
They will be giving out crime prevention advice and offering free bike marking.
PC Darren Turner said: “We are looking forward to meeting residents at these events and if people find them useful, we plan to attend once a month.
“I’d like to remind residents that bike-marking is a really simple way of preventing bike thefts. If you ride a bike, do come along to one of these events and get it security marked. It takes just minutes and will give you peace of mind.
“We’ll also be giving residents advice to protect themselves from various types of crime.
“If there is something you would like to speak to us about, please come along so we that we can talk it through and help you.”
