Hertfordshire horse riders to help cut crime
Horse riders in Hertfordshire are being urged to offer additional support for the community.
The local police force is asking equine enthusiasts to be vigilant when they are out and report any suspicious activity to the non-emergency number 101.
While the informal arrangement is not designed to replace police officers, it is hoped the additional information received can help to reduce crime rates.
A police spokesperson said. "This is just another way of asking members of the community to help play their part and be responsible for keeping East Herts a happy and safe place to live, work and visit."
In order to improve awareness of the event, a free barbecue is being held at the Contessa Riding Centre in Colliers End on September 14th between 11:30 to 13:30 BST.
Members of the East Herts Safer Neighbourhoods Policing Team, will be on hand at the gathering to answer any questions people have.
