Police are to focus on tackling antisocial behaviour in specific areas of Borehamwood over the coming months.

Hertfordshire Constabulary says issues have been reported by residents living in the town centre and in Leeming Road.

This includes antisocial behaviour in Cardinal Avenue and Whitehouse Avenue off Shenley Road.

Increased patrols will also continue in the Milby Court area of Leeming Road as well as in Lamberton Court in Gateshead Road, where there was a fire earlier this year.

Police say “much work” has already been done to tackle vandalism, graffiti, drug taking and fly tipping in these areas.

This includes working with Hertsmere Borough Council and the fire service, as well as housing association Clarion Housing to remove bin sheds, repair a broken fence in Aycliffe Road, and install extra lighting.

Safer neighbourhood inspector Rachael Robertson said: “We are committed to addressing these issues that matter to the community.

“I’d thank people for taking the time to let us know what issues they would like us to focus on. If we know about it, we can work to tackle it.

“Whilst these are reviewed every three months, you can let us know at any time if there’s an emerging issue in your area.”

People can use the police’s community voice platform ‘echo’ to let officers know what they think they should be prioritising.
