Anyone who lives, works or runs an organisation in Hertfordshire is invited to attend the Herts Police and Crime Commissioner’s annual lecture at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

The free two-hour talk starts at 6pm on Monday, June 16, at the venue’s Weston Auditorium on the de Havilland Campus, which has the postcode AL10 9EU.

Parking is also free for those who have reserved a seat.

In his 2013 inaugural lecture, Herts Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd discussed how we could all play a part in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.

He said: “This is one of the highlights of the year for me. It is a great opportunity to engage with a large number of people and talk about what is important to me, as your Police and Crime Commissioner.

“Crime is falling in Hertfordshire, and across the whole country, but not everyone believes this to be true – especially if they themselves have been a victim of crime.

“In the lecture, I will talk about crime and call for more focus on ‘hidden’ crimes, such as domestic abuse, and on new crime trends, including so-called ‘cybercrime’.

“l will also consider what the public should expect from the police, and others, and the urgent need for the police to work in collaboration with partners, and the public, in order to keep our communities safe.

“Please come along and join me for the evening.”

Last year, he touched on how we can also call on state and local service leaders, businesses and individuals to take responsibility for crime prevention.

This year he will explore the difficulties of defining and measuring crime and what residents can, and should, expect from the police.

He will also consider what he, as commissioner, can contribute to the debate and argue that policing is broader than just the police.
