Watford Police Station

Watford Police Station is set to relocate to a modern building in the centre of the town later this year. The new station will be located on George Street.

I meet regularly with the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd to discuss local concerns, and I often spoke to him about the need to upgrade the police provision in Watford to create a station with space to take the increased number of police officers provided through the police uplift programme.

With the new location being so close to the High Street, foot patrols can be conducted easily, while it is also close to the ring road enabling a rapid vehicle response.

Having been on two police raids in Watford, I have seen for myself how hard our local police officers work and it is only right that we equip them as best we can to help them in their vital work. New, modern facilities in the heart of town is fantastic news for Watford.
