Hertfordshire is one of the safest counties in England to live and work and the Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to working with local councils and other groups and organisations, across the county to keep crime low.

Number of crimes

St Albans City & District showed a decline in the crime figures from April to the end of May 2017. Crimes then spiked for 2 weeks and have started to decrease again. The biggest reductions have been in drug possession down 33% and theft from person down 7%.

To view crime statistics for your local area go to the Hertfordshire Constabulary mapping site at www.police.uk/ and type in your postcode. You can zoom in on the map to see area-specific crime data.
