Plate safe events in Potters Bar hailed a success
TWO events held to reduce number plate theft in Potters Bar have been hailed a success.
Special anti-theft screws were fitted to number plates on 160 vehicles during the two roadshows, which were organised by the Hertsmere Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP).
The screws were fitted free of charge by trained staff from Potters-Bar based breakdown company Lantern.
Police officers and staff from the Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service were also on hand to give residents advice about local policing issues and home fire safety.
The CDRP is a partnership involving Hertsmere Borough Council and the police.

“I have no doubt that these events have made, and will continue to make, a contribution to bringing down the number of victims of vehicle crime in the borough.”

Pc Graham Hiscock said: “It was really valuable to speak with members of the public and listen to their issues first hand.
“The community were supportive of the events and were very pleased to reduce the chances of their number plates being stolen.”
The first event took place at Tesco in Mutton Lane on March 15. The second roadshow was held at the Furzefield Centre five days later.
