District Commander update

I am Chief Inspector Josie Hayes and I am delighted to be the District Commander for Basildon.

I joined Essex Police in 2002 and have undertaken a number of roles since then.  I have previously worked in the Basildon district but more recently have taken up roles within the Serious Crime Directorate.   I have worked on response teams, neighborhood policing teams, operational planning, staff officer to the Assistant Chief Constable, Intelligence Manager and covert policing.

I am passionate about Neighborhood Policing and am delighted to return to Basildon which was my first posting as a probationer constable.  I return to lead a highly motivated team of officers and support staff, all of whom are committed to delivering a prompt and professional service to victims of crime and the wider community. Basildon is a vibrant part of South Essex and continues to offer a variety of opportunity and challenges.

I am committed to building upon the strong foundations that have already been forged with communities and partner agencies to ensure that I can maximise the service given to you.

I intend to focus on reducing crimes that seriously affect people’s lives such as burglary. Burglary of a persons’ home is a despicable crime and one that far too often affects people within Basildon.   I would appeal to you to join my team and I as we continue to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour within your area. Please report suspicious behaviour, tell us about those who effect your quality of life and impart information that will assist us in bringing criminals to justice. You can do this by contacting the local officers for your area, stopping and speaking with one of the team out on patrol or by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

If you would prefer to contact me in writing then please write to:
