Police officers gave out crime prevention advice to more than 100 people at a Potters Bar coffee shop.
The event at Caffé Nero in Darkes Lane involved Potters Bar Safer Neighbourhood Team officers providing words of wisdom, as well as giving out crime prevention gadgets such as purse bells and property marking kits.
They also helped people sign up to the Online Watch Line (OWL) service.
PC Paul Francis, who organised the event last week, said: “This was all about the local residents and businesses having the opportunity to meet their local officers in a local venue and talk about local matters.
“The event was a real success and we had some great positive feedback from the people we spoke to. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere with plenty of people coming and going and having the time to sit and chat to us, not just a brief chat whilst rushing past to catch a train or get the shopping home.”
