Residents in rural areas around Hitchin are being asked to have their say on policing priorities in their communities.

The Safer Neighbourhood Team is asking people who live in villages and hamlets around the town to tell them about issues impacting them.

In the current set of policing priorities, officers are tackling fly tipping, speeding and anti-social behaviour in open spaces.

"Your local officers have been working hard to tackle the issues raised during our last priority setting process," said Hitchin Rural Sergeant Guy Westwood.

"Now we again need input from our local communities to help us capture all of the issues that are impacting on you.

"This will enable us to allocate resources where they are needed most and shape future patrol plans and campaigns."
