Visit by Police and Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Commissioner, David Lloyd toured St. Albans including a visit to the Islamic Centre.

"A drop in at one of the three main mosques in St Albans was the next stop, visiting an Islamic Centre in Hatfield Road to discuss relationships with police and understand any issues of local concern. The centre, funded entirely by the local community, has recently expanded with an extension into new buildings and renovation of key facilities. With St Albans understood to be the second largest Muslim community in Hertfordshire, the centre currently welcomes approximately 16 different nationalities on site as a local place of worship. Mr Akthar Zaman reported a good on-going dialogue with local officers, and said recent Open Days have cemented the centre’s open, accessible and inclusive ethos with the local community."
