Safer Streets team launches in Tring after rise in crime


Published by Charlotte Fisher at 8:02am 16th February 2019.

After a rise in crime in Tring a street team is launching today (16th Feb) to reassure people living in the town.

The Safer Streets project is a collaborative initiative involving police, the fire service, local residents’ associations, councillors, housing associations and the local council.

Today (16th Feb) police officers, PCSOs, Volunteer Police Cadets, Neighbourhood Watch volunteers, colleagues from the fire service and Dacorum Borough Council will be knocking on doors to speak to residents about any issues they may have and will also be offering crime prevention advice.

PCSO Jake Smith said:

“We’ve organised this event following feedback from the local community. It’s a great opportunity to meet with local residents so that they can put names to our faces, talk through any concerns they may have, receive crime prevention advice and find out more about OWL (Online Watch Link), the Constabulary’s free online messaging service which sends people email alerts about crimes in their area.

“We’ll also be using this as an opportunity to build our database of residents who have CCTV and doorbell cameras as the footage these capture can often be vital in helping us to identify and arrest offenders.

“You can expect to see us in the Roseberry Way, Kingsley Walk and Eight Acres areas between around 11am and 2pm on February 16. Please feel free to approach us to have a chat.”

You can get involved with the scheme here.
