SUPER SNT: Rickmansworth Safer Neighbourhood Team get out and about in community

 Published on: 6th October 2023   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

September was a busy month for the Rickmansworth Safer Neighbourhood Team (RSNT), who have been carrying out patrols and engaging with the community across Croxley.

Detective Inspector Dan Bhamra, who leads the Three Rivers Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The role of my teams is very varied, and no day is ever the same in neighbourhood policing. One minute, officers could be helping to resolve a neighbour dispute and the next, they could be assisting their colleagues with a drugs warrant.

“What is clear though, is that seeing their local bobbies on the beat is hugely important to our communities, as are proactive targeted patrols.”

RSNT spoke to residents, as well as primary and secondary school students, about the constabulary’s strategy to tackle violence against women and girls. They also spoke about the benefits of Hollie Guard, a personal safety app set up by the family of murder victim Hollie Gazzard.

The Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) also supported Police Constables with speed enforcement operations, where several drivers were stopped and given words of advice.

Detective Bhamra added: “Being visible is vital to the team’s effectiveness and it’s great to see how much they have been out and about in recent weeks – I think our social media feeds are a great way for residents to keep up to date with what we’re up to in their area.

“We also continue to work closely with our partners, including the district council, to achieve common goals and resolve local issues.”
