POLICING PRIORITIES: Officers to tackle antisocial behaviour in Radlett parks

 Published on: 10th July 2022   |   By: Christina Pantelly   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police from Hertsmere say they are focusing on the crackdown of antisocial behaviour in Radlett and other open areas.

This has been made a priority following an increase in reports from Aldenham Parish Council’s open spaces team and members of the public about anti-social behaviour in public parks. The reports have included graffiti, noise nuisance, underage drinking and smoking cannabis.

The clampdown on anti-social behaviour in parks are among the issues the public have said they would like police to prioritise in Hertsmere. Thanks to feedback from the public, the Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) have set their policing priorities, which they will now focus over the next three months.

The SNT is responsible for fixing short and long-term neighbourhood issues such as anti-social behaviour and they work with local partners, including the council, to ensure that the borough is a safe place to live and work.

Safer Neighbourhood Inspector Rachael Robertson said: “The Safer Neighbourhood Team is committed to addressing these issues that matter to the community.

“I’d thank people for taking the time to let us know what issues they would like us to focus on. If we know about it, we can work to tackle it.

“Whilst these are reviewed every three months, you can let us know at any time if there’s an emerg[oing issue in your area.

“It’s important to note that some comments we receive are about things that aren’t police matters, such as most parking-related issues and litter, however we do pass these comments to our partner agencies, such as Hertsmere Borough Council so that they are aware and can look to tackle them.”
