Policing visit

by msecadm4921

In his latest visit, Policing and Criminal Justice Minister Nick Herbert visited Hertfordshire Constabulary police headquarters in Welwyn Garden City to meet police officers and staff. Among topics discussed by the minister was the forthcoming election of Police and Crime Commissioners, who will be voted in by the public in November.


The minister said of the role of the Commissioners: ‘Police and Crime Commissioners will give the local community a voice in policing.

‘It will put the public firmly in the driving seat and, if the Police and Crime Commissioner does not meet their expectations, then they have the choice to vote differently in future.’

Nick Herbert was given a guided tour of the Major Crime Unit – run jointly with the neighbouring Bedfordshire force. He also met neighbourhood officers PC James Tassell and Sgt Malcolm Dey out on the beat in the town centre.
