'Community Voice' event lined up for town centre helping to shape policing priorities for Sawbridgeworth
A 'Community Voice' event being held by police will give them the chance to shape priorities, initiatives and campaigns for Sawbridgeworth.
The event on Saturday (June 25), from 11am to 1.30pm, will see officers from the police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) joined by town councillors in Bell Street car park.
It will give residents the opportunity to meet the town’s officers to discuss any local issues they feel police should be focusing on.
SNT officers are responsible for dealing with short- and long-term issues such as anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, speeding and drug-related crime. They also work with local partner agencies, including East Herts Council, to tackle long-term community issues.
Feedback gathered during the event will be recorded via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s community voice platform ‘echo’ and will be used to help shape neighbourhood priorities, initiatives and campaigns. Visitors can also get a range of crime prevention advice.
PC Shelly Marshall, from the Sawbridgeworth SNT, said: “We are fully committed to working with local communities to help tackle any issues they may be facing. Direct feedback from members of the public is absolutely vital to help us do this, as we want to make sure we’re focusing on what matters most to them.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to voice their opinions and concerns, and we hope that residents will come along on the day to meet their local officers, have a chat and get some useful advice and information.”
