Residents were given free security devices when they attended a police beat surgery held at Hatfield Library on Friday (24 March).
The surgery was the second in a series being run by the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Officers have teamed up with the library staff to host crime prevention stalls every two months. Residents can pop along for advice, to share their views on local police issues or even just to say hello!
Friday’s surgery was run by PCSO Mark Randall and PCSO Amy Martin and took place between 11am and 1pm.
Residents could walk away with free security devices including alarms, purse bells and card defenders (which prevent sensitive information being read by card scanners). Security packs with leaflets advising on crime prevention tips were also available.
PCSO Mark Randall said: “We were looking forward to Friday’s event following the success of our surgery in January. It was another great turnout and I would like to thank everybody who came along.
“We were pleased to be able to help residents, answering their questions and providing them with free security devices to give them peace of mind.
“I’d also like to thank Hatfield Library once again for teaming up with us on this important community engagement initiative.”
The next surgery takes place at Hatfield Library, White Lion Square, on Friday 26 May from 11am to 1pm.
