Police and Crime 
Commissioner David Lloyd has published the first draft of his refreshed Police and Crime Plan.

Titled ‘Everybody’s 
Business 2015-2020’, it has been produced in consultation with the police and other industry experts and is now 
going out to public 
consultation.

Mr Lloyd claims that at the core of the revised plan is the protection of ten district teams, led by a senior officer.

He said: “Hertfordshire is a very safe county with an outstanding police force and we need to work together to 
maintain and build on that success.

“Neighbourhood policing works. It creates a police force that is embedded in, and 
supported by, a community working together to cut crime rather than a force that is 
distant and engages only when they are called in to clear up the damage.

“Members of the public and the Chief Constable tell me that it is the best way to cut crime – so I have put it at the heart of the police and crime plan.”

The final plan will be 
presented to the Police and Crime Panel which meets on June 11. It will then be 
formally published and 
become the over-arching 
strategy for the next five years.

Police Station, 15 Vaughan Road, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, AL5 4GZ.
