Thank's for your hard work and be careful in the future, policing on your own doorstep is always risky.

Hi Bill,

Sorry to hear you are moving on, but glad for you; it sounds like it makes sense on a personal level. But I'll miss your updates and will miss you popping in for a cuppa as you do your rounds. I remember taking that picture of you for the forum a year ago when you had such ambitious plans to sign locals up to Neighbourhood Watch; you've certainly achieved what you set out to achieve.



Good luck in the future. Our loss is WGC's gain.

(I've merged your farewell post with the thread in which you announced your arrival a year ago. Nice to have both in the one place for reference.)

Hopefully Bill will be able to pass on his considerable local knowledge to his successor so they can build on his legacy. Hopefully they will use the forum to pass on news as Bill has done so effectively during his time in the village.

Good luck in the new role and thank you for all you have done for the village.

Good luck Bill. Sad to see you go as it was lovely to see you around the village. Don't forget to pop in for the cake and cup of tea before you go.

The latest email from the Safer Neighbourhoods Team says our new PCSO will be Lynn Fedarb. Lynn, if you are reading this please consider setting up an account on the forum (Bill can help you), and you can post updates in the neighbourhood watch and crime section.

May I take this opportunity to welcome myself to the village and surrounding areas. I started my new posting in Brookmans park three weeks ago, but have just come back from a weeks annual leave.
I have been out and about patrolling the area and have met many of the local shop keepers and residents of the community, all be it not everyone yet.
Just a little about myself, I have worked for the constabulary for 13 years. My first 4 years in HQ, control room and the last 9 as a PCSO in Hatfield Town Centre so i'd like to think I have a few years experience behind me.
Please feel free to stop me and say hello when you see me out and about, and now I have access to the forum, I will keep you up to date with any relevant information.
Likewise if you need to contact me, please send me an email - Lynn.fedarb2@herts.pnn.police.uk and I will more than happy to help.
Look forward to meeting you.

Welcome to the forum. Is it Lyn or Lynn? When the news went out that you were taking over from Bill your name was spelt Lyn, but I see you are using Lynn in the forum. Which do you prefer? I've also added your picture to your forum profile so people can recognise you when you post. David

I know I am no longer your community officer but I spent most of the year with you so I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous new year. I have been fortunate to see some of you in The Howard centre in Welwyn garden City and at The Campus west whilst out on patrol, and its been great to catch up with you. I still follow what's going on in your village through this site and probably always will as I had such a good time working in the village. I have settled well in my new area which covers Sherrards wood and knightsfield area of Welwyn Garden. My new beat also has a good neighbourhood watch which I am adding to as and when I can.
I hope Lynn is looking after you all and that you are all looking after each other. Be safe.
Bill.

Just out of interest anybody seen the PCSO recently.  Must admit since Bill left there does seem to be a noted lack of the CPSO presence.  Must admit I am about the village most days and have not seen her.  Just wondering.

All we seem to have around the village are what I call " Milk Maids" i.e. traffic wardens ! Give them a uniform and power comes to mind!
Was in Potters Bar yesterday , and they were going round in pairs ?
More like a police state unfortunately.

Funny I was thinking that today when out walking. Used to see Bill all the time in the village. Not seen the new PCSO out and about at all. BP

I will drop Lynn a line. She did say that she would post updates in the forum. I'll check. David

Good to know, thanks Marty. I've dropped Lynn a line to encourage her and her team to post local updates on the website. David

Yes I noted that and was told that she is always in the village. Thus prompting this post.

Whilst voting the other week I thought the election of a Police Commissioner was pretty pointless

Now I'm thinking that perhaps this is the sort of thing we should be making him aware of

Even if there is a good reason why we no longer have a dedicated PCSO it would be nice to know this one way or another.

I guess we were spoilt - I think Bill was always going to be a very hard act to follow

Hi all,

I've been in touch with Hertfordshire Constabulary about the concerns expressed in the forum regarding our PSCO and have had two responses. The first from Lynn in which she has explained why people may not have seen her out and about as much as expected. The edited text of her email below.

Quote
Thank you for your email.
 
Yes I am indeed still the local PCSO for the Brookmans Park area. I will admit that I am not always out and about walking the Bradmore Green ďTriangleĒ if you like but I am in the village. Whether Iíve been walking the streets of the village, either just on patrols and saying hello to local dog walkers or doing other enquiries, I am there as much as I can be. Over the cold dark winter months, when residents are indoors with the curtains drawn and the lights on, I doubt very much they look outside and see me.
 
Iím not sure if residents understand that itís not just Bradmore Green that I patrol, there is far more to my beat than just Brookmans Park Village. I also cover various other areas, including: Bell Bar, Wildhill, Little Heath and Newgate Street Village. Also, Cuffley and Welham Green too when their local officer is on rest days. There are also several farms, businesses  and very rural residents within the area to. I have to divide my time up so that the area as a whole gets covered by me. I understand  this means I am not always just in the village but I have to deal with the jobs/enqs/other visits that come in on a daily basis.
 
I will take the comments on board. I am always available and more than happy to speak to, or to pop along and visit residents if they so wish to discuss any matters with me. I hope this clarifies some of the issues raised but if not please feel free to let me or my sergeant know.

This has also been followed up with an email from Lynn's Sergeant, Matthew O'Neill, who has shed some light on why Lynn is not posting in the forum in response to comments made. The text of Matthew's email below.

Quote
I have had a conversation with Lynn regarding the Brookmans Park forum and whether comments should be added by the police on the forum or not.
 
We have come to the conclusion that it may not be best practice for anyone to comment from the police on the forum or reply to any comments that have been posted.
 
The constabulary as a whole have a corporate communications department that review and submit any piece of information that is submitted for view in any public domain, be that newspaper, radio report or online comments.
 
We do have our own method of communicating messages to as many people as possible through OWL linked with neighbourhood watch. Lynn is a regular user of this and disseminates any information to residents of her ward using this system. This ensures that the message reaches people by many methods using email, phone call and text message so we try and reach those who may not have internet access or a computer.
 
I have seen your email this morning regarding putting a comment on the forum and this appears to be fine by myself.
 
If there is anything else that either Lynn or I can assist with please feel free to contact us.

So it seems that the main online communication from the police will be the messages shared by the OWL system which are sent to this site and several forum members, including the moderators. We will continue to try to copy these over when relevant and time permitting.
