Sergeant’s Message

“The main issue in Shenley is young people behaving anti-socially, including young people drinking underage, shouting, swearing and smoking drugs.  We are working closely with schools, parents and the local community as well as the Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership.  We are looking at diversionary options, including sport, so that young people have something to do and we are trying to give them strong role models so that they make the right decisions.  If you see anyone behaving anti-socially, please call us on 101.  Together, we can help make Shenley and even nicer place to live.

“If you would like to speak about any local quality of life issues, don’t hesitate to contact PCSO Ramdeen via the non-emergency number 101 or via email christopher.ramdeen@herts.pnn.police.uk  If you are not already a member of Neighbourhood Watch, it’s a great time to join.  Simply log on to www.owl.co.uk to receive free emails about local issues and crimes.”
