Council cash supports Pcso numbers in Potters Bar
THE number of Pcsos on Potters Bar streets will remain the same.
Hertsmere Borough Council has confirmed it will continue to provide funding to local policing with �128,000 going towards keeping the same amount of officers in the area this year.
Cllr John Donne, portfolio holder for community safety, said: “Pcsos provide a valuable role in the community, supporting the police in a number of ways.
“It is clear our residents value their services in tackling crime and the fear of crime, as well as other local community issues, and we were more than happy to continue our commitment to them this year, despite difficult financial times.”
Hertsmere currently has 26 officers patrolling its patch and has also been dubbed one of the “most supportive” councils for funding Pcsos.
