Residents and shoppers can have ‘Coffee with a Cop’ at Costa in Tesco on Mutton Lane.

The Potters Bar Safer Neighbourhood Team have relaunched the neighbourhood surgeries so the public can drop in and discuss local crime or anti-social behaviour-related concerns without needing an appointment.

They will be at Costa from 11am to 1pm on the following Saturdays:

  • October 19
  • November 23
  • December 28.

Potters Bar Neighbourhood Sergeant Noel Buckley said: “We are really excited to be running the ‘Coffee with a Cop’ surgeries.  We know it is more convenient for people to come and speak to us about any issues of concern or to pick up crime prevention advice when they are already out.  We hope residents will come and join us in an informal environment.”

He said: “We will also be issuing crime prevention advice on a range of topics, to help people keep themselves and their property safe, including burglaries which tend to increase at this time of year. The most important advice is to securely lock your windows and doors, consider investing in alarms, CCTV and doorbell cams and report any suspicious behaviour online via or call 101.”

Details of further events will be advertised.
