Hertfordshire Constabulary

Hertfordshire Constabulary covers a wide area, with London, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage and Watford all located within its boundary.

Like Essex, Hertfordshire’s crime is predominantly focused around London, with Waltham Cross topping the region’s offence table with 197 offences per 10,000 cars. Northwood and Borehamwood also show increased criminality with 138 and 129 comparable offences. Our heat map also shows increased activity in Hatfield, Potters Bar and Watford.

Like Essex, car crime reduces as you travel away from London and the rural districts show consistently low offence rates. The safest area in Hertfordshire is in North Mymms, with just 40 offences.

The most targeted make of car in Hertfordshire is Mercedes-Benz, with 171 offences, while Mitsubishi (144 offences) and Suzuki (113 offences) were also targeted by criminals.

Overall, Hertfordshire has a low rate of car crime, with an average of 81 offences per 10,000 cars reported in 2011-2012. Hertfordshire Constabulary also runs a number of high profile operations against known gangs and is committed to making sure that criminals pay for their actions by enforcing the Proceeds of Crime Act to strip them of any assets they’ve gained from stealing or breaking into cars.
