University of Hertfordshire Policing Team

We have a dedicated team of Police Officers from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team to ensure our University is a safe place to study. The team of three officers regularly patrol both campuses by car and by foot until 11pm each day. They are on-hand to offer advice, promote student safety on and off campus and to police any incidents.

The team regularly host events, as well as participating in University events such as the Freshers’ Fair, for students to gain crime prevention advice and speak to police about any crime-related issues affecting them. Recent events include a free bike security marking event at Hatfield Police Station which saw over 100 bikes marked in a bid to make them less attractive to thieves.

Throughout the year, the team set up ‘beat surgery’ stalls across the campuses where students can pop along to gain advice and information.
