Crime and Public Safety Update

The following Report was prepared by Sandra Kyriakides, WPAG Project Manager and former Welwyn Hatfield Borough Councillor.

There have been incidents of car vandalism as well as two recent burglaries on Welwyn High Street over the past month.

The police are aware and I have asked for a meeting with our local community police team leader to discuss policing in the area in general.  I will report back as and when I have any further information on this.

The police have reverted to the earlier method of policing, with designated officers to ward areas and, when I know who ours is, I will pass this information on to you.

In the meantime, please do all you can to ensure your personal safety and that of your property.  Have good lighting, keep windows and doors locked. Keep an eye open for anything or anyone suspicious and if in doubt, report to the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.   If you have not already done so, join Neighbourhood Watch and receive OWL (Online Watch Link) messages that keep you informed about crimes or antisocial activities in your area. This is the season where there is likely to be an increase in opportunist crime, so please be aware and vigilant.
