Home watch initiative
If you are going on holiday and are worried about whether your home will be burgled while you are away, you might want to give the local police a ring.
According to PCSO Louise Luxford, the local community team is more than happy to drive past the homes of people who are on vacation and look out for anything suspicious going on.
Clearly, the local community police canít offer a 24x7 security service, and whatís on offer doesnít guarantee that homes wonít be visited by burglars, but it may help the local team know where the risks are.
PCSO Luxford and her team regularly patrol local roads as part of their daily crime prevention activity. If you want to let the local police team know when you will be away you can call PCSO Luxford on 01707-806947 or 806948 or email her at louise (dot) luxford (at) herts (dot) pnn (dot) police (dot) uk.
