FOUR local police officers have been commended for the part they played in convicting six people involved in a triple murder case.
They were Det Supt Mick Hanlon, 42, and Det Insp Steve Keating, both of whom live in Harpenden, and Det Con Jayne-Marie Richards and Sgt Oliver Johnston, 33, who live in St Albans.
The triple murder took place in 2007 in Bishop's Stortford and the quartet was commended for their work in connection with it.
During the three-and-a-half-week trial the court heard how drug dealing was behind the murders.
