Police are warning the community to be extra vigilant after a spate of charity box thefts.
Over the last year collection tins have been stolen from numerous charities around Hertsmere, including in Radlett.
PC Shazia Malik said: “Please help us protect people’s donations by keeping an eye out for anyone acting suspiciously around charity boxes and if you are displaying a charity box, make sure it is secure, and preferably covered by CCTV.”
She said the money tins should be secured to something inanimate in a highly visible place.
Staff should be aware of people’s loitering around or trying to distract them, such as dropping change.
