GW: Lots of comments in Watford Observer about the shutting of the Watford Holding Cells and the proposed ‘‘redevelopment” of the Magistrates Court in Clarendon Road. The Watford Police are now required to transfer offenders to Hatfield for processing. There is further consternation about the closing of the Watford Police Station in Shady Lane to make way for flats as well.
In Watford tptwtb ie TC Government have managed to put distance between themselves and the de-construction of the local police force by appointing a ‘‘Police Commissioner” – one David Lloyd who has milked his position for all it is worth whilst presiding over the cuts!
