Dataset Language
Every community in Hertfordshire has a team dedicated to local policing for the area in which they live.
There are 94 Safer Neighbourhoods in Hertfordshire. 93 of these are based on smaller areas, either Census 01 Ward Boundaries (/Police Beats), or District 08 Ward Boundaries, and are the ones shown in this file; while a further Safer Neighbourhood Team works solely with Hertfordshire University and its environs.

Dataset Reference Date
The information used to collate these boundaries came from the individual district leads, via Inspector Paul Lawrence of Herts Constabulary.
Once all 10 district groupings had been sorted, they were merged and any inconsistencies removed via topology, working to the Census 01 District Boundary positioning.
