The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have announced new priorities to focus on.
The SNT are tasked with fixing short- and long-term neighbourhood issues such as anti-social behaviour (ASB). The officers work closely with local partners including the council and schools to achieve this.
The team regularly sets out priorities to focus on and these are reviewed throughout the year. Residents were recently asked to get in touch using the constabulary’s community voice platform to share their thoughts on what the new ones should be.
The new priorities have now been chosen:
Welwyn Hatfield North (Welwyn West, Welwyn East, Haldens, Sherrards, Handside, Peartree and Panshanger)
ASB in Welwyn Garden City town centre (extended from last set of priorities)
Vehicle nuisance and anti-social driving across Welwyn Hatfield North
Vehicle crime in Panshanger
Welwyn Hatfield West (Hatfield Villages, Hatfield Central, Hatfield South West and the University of Hertfordshire)
ASB in Hatfield town centre – in particular enforcing the Public Spaces Protection Order which is in place to target street drinking and ASB
Nuisance motorbikes and mopeds and anti-social riding on the Great North Road
ASB in King George V Playing Fields
Unlicenced music events in and around Cuffley
SNT Inspector Amy Sheldon said: “I would like to thank everybody who took the time who share their views on echo and I hope that you feel reassured by the new priorities.
“Of course, we will still be tackling other issues but we will be paying close to attention to these ones.
“Don’t forget you can keep up to date with our work on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow us at Welwyn Hatfield Police on Facebook and @WelHatPolice on Twitter.”
