An event to provide safety advice to the Asian community was organised by police in Watford.

Officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary arranged a meet and greet with the Asian Group at the Holywell Community Centre on Tuesday, September 5.

Around 50 members attended the meet and greet community engagement morning to listen to talks from different bodies, all of which were delivered in Hindi.

The session kicked off with singing and praying from the group, who have been meeting since 1998.

A talk on Asian gold was given in Hindi by PC Ishaq, and talks from Neighbourhood Watch, Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, and Hertfordshire Trading Standards were also translated into Hindi for the audience.

After lunch, members of different organisations stayed to answer questions from individiuals.

The event was organised by PSCO Sandra Smith alongside the Neighbourhood Watch Liason Officer Philip Waine.

PCSO Smith said: “Watford is a hugely diverse town and we strive to do all we can to reach out to the different communities who live and work here to ensure they are receiving advice on how to keep themselves and their belongings safe.

“The Meet and Greet event saw a brilliant turn out and everyone really enjoyed themselves. I want to thank all those who were involved and we hope to hold similar events in future.”
