This week officers from Watford’s town centre Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) hosted the town’s first socially-distanced beat surgery since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.
Three PCSOs set up the surgery on the High Street, close to Palace View, on Monday September 21 between 10am and 2pm.
They spent time speaking to residents and shoppers and gave advice on personal safety and crime prevention.
Local company MPS Security attended to give advice on burglar alarms and CCTV.
They also signed 16 new people up to the Online Watch Link (OWL), a community messaging service that keeps residents informed of the latest crime trends in their area.
PCSO Dominik Tokarczyk said: “It’s always great to speak to our communities face to face, but it’s been a while since we have been able to hold one of these events due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
“It was great to have the opportunity to speak to so many people and we had several comments about how good it was to see us on the High Street.”
