Police and fire crews at Tesco in Potters Bar

CRIME and fire prevention advice will be handed out to Potters Bar shoppers this morning (Tuesday).

Police, council officers and fire fighters are out in force to give advice and practical help to local people at a Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership ‘Spotlight’ event.

From 1pm to 3pm officers will be based at Tesco in Mutton Lane giving out advice. They will also carry out free mobile phone security marking and are available to discuss any concerns you may have about your safety and security where you live, work, go to school, shop or visit.

The Potters Bar Safer Neighbourhood Team, which won the Hertsmere prize for Neighbourhood Team of the Year at Hertfordshire Police Authority’s recent Safer Neighbourhood Awards, will be at the event but if you can’t make it you can contact them anytime on 0845 33 00 222.

There will also be an Alcohol Awareness Month stand at this location. As part of a county-wide initiative to highlight the negative impacts drinking alcohol can have on your health and fitness - as well as remind residents about sensible drinking measures.
