During the last few years the local Asian community has been targeted by criminals specifically carrying out burglaries at Asian homes with the aim of stealing gold jewellery. Several members of the Sangant have been victims of these burglaries, this also included Management Committee member Dr Dr Harmadan Singh Sandhu.
Following these spate of burglaries, members of the Sangant who had been victims of these disturbing crimes were interviewed by a reporter from the local newspaper - The Comet. Please click on the following Comet logo for the article published in the Comet on Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
In response to the issues and concerns raised by the article in the Comet, North Herts Constabulary have increased policing around potential target areas and have visited the local Gurdwara's highlighting what precautions we as individuals and as a community do collectively to counter such crimes.
In addition the Gurdwara has hosted several visits from the Police support officers highlighting precautions that the Sangant can make to their property.
