Bishop's Stortford police ready to talk at scene of racist attack
Police officers from the Bishop's Stortford Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will be holding an 'engagement event' in the town next week.
The socially-distanced event in Diamond Park on Monday August 10 will enable people to discuss any local issues they feel the force should be focusing on.
Feedback will be recorded via Hertfordshire Constabulary's community voice platform, Echo, and will be used to help shape neighbourhood priorities, initiatives and campaigns.
Officers will be in Diamond Park, off Lower Park Crescent, from 5pm to 7pm. The park was the scene of a racist attack on a family group of south Asian boys by up to 15 teenagers on Thursday July 23 which prompted a vigil by anti-racism activists on Saturday August 1.
PCSO Adam Pemberton, who has organised the event, said: "Feedback from members of the public is really important to us as it enables us to gauge the issues which are important to people locally. Please do pop along and say hello and tell us what matters most to you."
