Police have launched a scheme to help protect Hertsmere’s historical sites, monuments and artefacts from crime.

Hertfordshire Constabulary has joined forces with English Heritage and Hertfordshire County Council as part of its new Heritage Watch programme.

The scheme has been introduced at sites and museums across the borough by Hertsmere Chief Inspector Dean Patient.

He has teamed up with the de Havilland Aircraft Museum at Salisbury Hall, near Shenley, to roll the project out in Hertsmere.

The force hopes to further protect the county’s historical artefacts and heritage sites - such as the museum - by improving communication between people who live in the area.

Alan Brackley, chairman of the de Havilland Aircraft Museum, said: “De Havilland is the oldest aviation museum in the UK and is home to several de Havilland aircraft, including three Mosquitos - more than in other museum in the world.

“These aircraft and other artefacts in the museum are irreplaceable and a testament to the courage of the women and men who designed, built, flew and maintained them.

“As a result it is of the utmost importance that we all take responsibility for their safe keeping and why we are happy to support Heritage Watch and encourage people to join the scheme.”
