Hertfordshire Constabulary says its officers will continue to crackdown on antisocial behaviour in a Borehamwood neighbourhood.

Police in Hertsmere have announced some of its major priorities over the coming months which includes continued extra focus on Leeming Road.

Safer neighbourhood team sergeant Matt Cann said in July his team of PC's and PCSO's would be working to address problems in the area after concerns were raised by members of the public.

Hertsmere police say that in the last three months, extra patrols were conducted in the Leeming Road area, including stop-and-search.

A knife amnesty also took place in the neighbourhood while anti-social behavioural surveys were sent out to 1,000 households, which police hope will provide them with a better understanding of issues in the area.

Over the next three months, police say its focus will continue in the Leeming Road area, including tackling anti-social behaviour, anti-social driving of vehicles, drug-related activity and nuisance youths.

Elsewhere in Borehamwood, police have announced it will prioritise tackling speeding and anti-social driving in Horizon Place and Studio Way, while thefts from motor vehicles in Elstree & Borehamwood is also of a concern.

In Shenley, there will be a focus on anti-social driving and speeding, and dangerous and anti-social parking in Porters Park Drive, London Road and Black Lion Hill, while begging, vagrancy, and theft will be focused on in Darkes Lane in Potters Bar.

It comes after increased patrols in the Harris Lane area of Shenley after complaints of anti-social behaviour.

Police say patrols were carried out at different times of the day and worked in partnership with landlords to deal with problem tenants.

One person seen dealing drugs from the vehicle was dealt with by police and a CCTV camera was installed in the area.

Patrols will continue at parks in Bushey after reports of anti-social behaviour.

There were also four robberies which took place on a single night, including one at knifepoint, in King George Recreation Ground.

Overt and undercover patrols have since been undertaken at the park and a knife amnesty will take place there this weekend.

In Elstree, police have spent time at Composers Park over the past few weeks engaging with youngsters after reports of anti-social behaviour in the area.

Police held a safer streets event with the fire and rescue service, Clarion Housing, Trading Standards, and McDonald's and a litter pick took place.

Meanwhile, Youth Connexions worked with police to talk with youths and help divert them away from trouble.

Patrols have been increased at Phillimore Place, Battlers Green Close, and Kendal Close in Radlett after reports of anti-social behaviour - with police saying several people were reported for possession of cannabis.

At a previous engagement event, the public told police they were concerned about off-road biking through the Mundens estate near Aldenham.

Police say targeted action led to three off-road bikes being seized and four warnings issued.

Safer neighbourhood inspector Rachael Robertson said: "These priorities have been set following responses from residents using our public feedback service echo and I thank them for taking the time in sharing what matters most to them. It’s really useful to understand what you would like to see from us.

"We will review these again in three months but in the meantime, you can still provide us with feedback using echo. Simply go to bit.ly/police-hm and have your say.

"It’s important to note that some comments we receive are about things that aren’t police matters, such as parking and litter, however we do pass these comments to our partner agencies, such as Hertsmere Borough Council so that they are aware and can look to tackle them."
