Homeowners in Potters Bar had a visit from the police this week.

The area's Safer Streets team offered the neighbours services including free security checks, crime prevention advice, fire safety checks and advice on healthy living and giving up smoking.

Safer Streets team visited 66 homes in The Drive, Potters Bar, completing 23 questionnaires, fitting several smoke alarms and making ten home fire safety referrals.

Residents who have been selected to receive a Safer Streets visit will get a hand-delivered postcard a few days beforehand.
