We’re committed to making motorcycling safer across Essex.
That means reducing the number of crashes, collisions and
casualties on the county’s roads.
Last year we recorded 17 motorcyclist fatalities on our roads –
a figure we’re working to reduce.
We have a team of experienced police
motorcyclists spread across the county to educate riders, tackle
dangerous driving and make the roads a safer place for
Essex Police currently has 12 motorcyclists based at our five
traffic bases in Laindon, Rayleigh, Bocking, Chigwell and
We have nine marked and two unmarked bikes patrolling the county
to help reduce the number of motorcyclists killed and seriously
injured on the roads of Essex.
We’re doing this in three ways:
- Education – Helping motorcyclists become safer
riders by passing on our officers’ skills and experience and
providing riders with further training if necessary.
- Enforcement – Taking action against
careless or dangerous driving, excess speed, vehicles involved in a
crime and riders without tax or insurance.
- Engineering – Working with Essex County Council to make problem
roads a safer place.
