Brookmans Park and Little Heath
Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
Message from your ward constable PC Jo Wakelen
This summer has been fairly quiet and there have been no big issues reported to us.
Even though things have been quiet, please remain vigilant and keep your property secure and report any suspect vehicles or people.
As usual, I have been out and about with my colleagues dealing with the traffic problems that have been reported to us.
We have held more traffic days and issued tickets to those breaking the law.
One day we issued 30 tickets for offences including driving without seatbelts, driving while using a mobile phone, and speeding.
We will continue with these traffic days in order to try to clamp down on driving offences in the area.
I have also noticed an increase in motorists parking on the footpath facing oncoming traffic.
This is an offence and is dangerous to other drivers and to pedestrians.
There is also an increase in motorists parking on the footpath blocking the way for pedestrians and forcing them to walk in the road.
If people park on the footpath they must leave at least enough room for a pram or a wheelchair to pass safely without having to go on the road. Best practice is not to park on the footpath at all.
The following are the latest crime figures for July 2007 to September 2007.
If you have any information about any incidents or suspicious activity in your area, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01707 6638112 or 0845 33 00 222 Jo Wakelen 2460 Neighbourhood Officer Hatfield Ext. 8112.
