Police surgeries held in Bushey
Local residents, businesses and community leaders can benefit from the police base in Bushey High Street as a place to meet officers face-to-face and discuss issues they may have.
The Bushey Police Office has been in operation for almost a year, providing a local base to the Safer Neighbourhood Teams which cover the village and surrounding areas.
Located at Bushey Golf and Country Club, the office is used for regular Safer Neighbourhood surgeries where local people can come in, without needing to make an appointment and see a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO).
The PCSO can give advice and information and discuss local or personal issues in confidence.
PCSO Esther Ainsley said: "We know that for some issues, like anti-social behaviour involving neighbours, people may not want us to visit them at home so we can also use the office in the town centre for face to face meetings. You simply need to call us to make an appointment."
If you know the name of the officer you want to speak to, you can use the Airwave number 01707 354192 to contact them, otherwise use the police non-emergency number 101.
If an officer is not available you can leave a message and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
You can also email for an appointment using the Safer Neighbourhood webpages: http://snt.herts.police.uk/aCMS/district.php?dID=4 , click on the area where you live for your local team’s page.
