Hertfordshire Constabulary is requesting public input to help establish its new local policing priorities.

Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) tackle long and short-term community issues such as anti-social behaviour, theft, speeding, and drug-related crimes.

Every four months, these priorities are set to focus on issues that are causing the most problems to residents.

The public will see a dedicated team of PCs and PCSOs working on these priorities through increasing police presence, holding engagement events and targeted enforcement.

The county is divided into 10 policing areas known as community safety partnerships (CSPs), each covered by NPTs but is also policed by Intervention officers who respond to emergency calls, the Local Crime Unit which investigates serious crimes like burglary, robbery and assault, and specialist units such as Operation Scorpion which work to tackle acquisitive crime.

There are also supported by central teams which work countywide.

Superintendent Anna Wright said: "Feedback from members of the public plays a big part in our decision making and is used to help shape the priorities, alongside an analysis of local data.

"We want to ensure that local policing resources are focusing on the issues that matter most, so I’d encourage everyone to share their views with us."

Members of the public can submit their opinions anonymously at https://bit.ly/hertspolice-psf before the end of April.
