Welwyn Hatfield residents are being invited to meet their local police this week.
The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team are hosting a beat surgery at St John’s Church in High View, South Hatfield on Wednesday (11 January).
The event runs from 10am to 12pm and residents will be able to receive free crime prevention advice from their local officers. It will also be an opportunity for residents to share their views on local policing.
PCSO Joanne Woods said: “Beat surgeries are a really useful way for us to find out about the issues affecting you. If there is something that has been bothering you, please come along and talk to us.
“As your Safer Neighbourhood Team, it’s our job to help protect the community from crime and anti-social behaviour. Speaking to you face to face about those issues helps to inform our patrol plans and operations.
“We hope to see lots of you on Wednesday, however if you can’t make it, don’t forget you can let us know your thoughts anytime by using echo, our community voice platform.”
