The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) are keeping their police priorities open for another three months as they continue working hard to tackle local issues.
The SNT is tasked with tackling 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.
Sergeant Alex Smedley, from the Welwyn Hatfield SNT, said: “We review our policing priorities every quarter and have decided that we will keep these ones in place for another three months to help ensure that they remain resolved in the long-term.
“Our priorities were all chosen in conjunction with the feedback you shared on echo, our community voice platform and I encourage you to carry on sharing your views. Your feedback is really useful as it helps us to target resources to the right places.”
The current priorities are:
Welwyn Hatfield North (Welwyn West, Welwyn East, Haldens, Sherrards, Handside, Peartree and Panshanger):
Drug dealing in Peartree (specifically in Peartree Lane)
Drug dealing in the Howard Centre and surrounding town centre
Welwyn Hatfield West (Hatfield Villages, Hatfield Central, Hatfield South West and the University of Hertfordshire):
E-scooters and cyclists in Hatfield town centre
Anti-social behaviour (involving drugs and alcohol) in Hatfield town centre
Welwyn Hatfield South (Hollybush, Cuffley, Howlands, Northaw, Hatfield East, Hatfield South, Welham Green, Brookmans Park and Little Heath):
E-scooters – particularly by young people in and around schools and the high streets
Speeding in North Mymms
