[updated 16/11/2015]


Essex Police is facing an unprecedented level of demand for its service and there is a need for us to concentrate our resources on meeting this demand, especially in areas that present the greatest threat or risk of harm to the public and the more vulnerable members of our community. We are continually working to provide a high quality service and to ensure consistency we have decided to withdraw the use of Neighbourhood Policing mobile phones. In order to ensure that you receive the most appropriate response to your call we ask that you use the 101 number for non-emergency calls and dial 999 in the case of emergencies. The Neighbourhood Policing Team mobile phone messages will now redirect callers to 101.


Please sign up to for accurate email or *new APP for smart phones* notifications of acquisitive crime in your area, sent directly from Essex Police and partners. The service allows you to select multiple postcode locations for example if you wanted to keep a check on the area of where a relative lives that is maybe not on the internet. Sign up is very quick and your details are not shared.


Fiestas remain the favourite vehicle choice of thieves. Not only to be stolen, but also to have parts stolen from and items from within. Alloy wheels should be secured using decent locking wheel nuts and also consider a 'tilt' activated alarm. In addition to wheels, spoilers and body kits are also being stolen. Our crime reduction officer has spoken to Ford and there are no plans to modify how these parts are secured, so owners need to consider other methods of security.


Rayleigh has a good night life and following the closure of venues in other towns, Rayleigh is getting busier. To address this officers are patrolling on foot on Friday and Saturday nights into the early hours of the following morning. We have already seen a reduction in incidents being reported.


The internet is full of useful crime reduction advice or you can contact our Crime Reduction Officer Emma Clark on 101 ext. 490533. We strongly urge you to improve your security in any way you can. Perhaps even create a neighbourhood watch scheme?

BUY A SAFE for your jewellery!!! Jewellery is still the most sought after item although ‘Apple’ products and laptops are also popular.

Smashing the glass on rear doors still seems to be the favoured method of entry.

Jewellery should be kept in a safe which does not necessarily have to cost as much as you think. In some cases valuable or sentimental items are stolen which would more than justify the relatively inexpensive purchase of a safe.
The best way to protect your home is with an alarm system. Adding an alarm really is worthwhile as it will deter a burglar from hanging around long enough to take lots of items or search your home. Other deterrents include: Dogs, PIR or low level lighting and gravel drives. UPVC doors especially those with an external handle should be secured by a key.


It is very difficult to prevent damage as they can be committed so quickly. The offences occur sporadically and all over the neighbourhood. Often these are committed without any warning or without reason.


Secure your vehicle and remove all valuable property.
Popular items to be stolen include; car number plates and wheels, designer sunglasses, SatNavs, money, wallets, keys and laptops! There isn't really a limit though as thieves will steal anything on offer. !!!WARNING - SATNAVs ARE NOT SAFE IN YOUR GLOVEBOX!!!


Police do not have any powers in relation to dealing with noise. Your Environmental Protection offices at Rochford District Council are charged with investigating matters of noise. In most circumstances the problem can easily be resolved by politely telling the person about it, if they do not know it is a problem they cannot deal with it. If after a reasonable amount of time nothing has been done to solve the problem, you can register your complaint. You can do this by completing the on-line form ‘make a complaint about a noise’ or if you require any further advice you may contact them by phone on 01702 318111 and ask for the Environmental Protection Unit, or e-mail

In some cases the noise may be a police matter under ‘anti-social behaviour’ for example a party being held on a regular basis when parents are away. Regular meetings are held between the police and District Council community safety department. If you are in any doubt or for more advice, please contact us.


If you would like to discuss crime or any other issue, please attend one of the Local Community Meetings. Dates and times are shown on the events tab.
The Meetings are for anyone that lives in, works in or visits Rayleigh or Rawreth. We would encourage you to attend to discuss any issues bothering you. If you cannot attend or don’t want to, please just email details or call the team 101 ext: 490535. Please check the events tab for more details and dates. PLEASE NOTE: on rare occasions, an officer may not be available to attend the meeting due to urgent operational commitments. However minutes are taken and passed on to the policing team.


The CSW scheme has been running for just over a year in Rayleigh & Rawreth. There are currently 9 recognised sites the volunteers can use. CSW is a partnership between the local community, local authority and Essex Police. Volunteers are trained to use speed detecting devices for the purpose of gathering data on motorists who are speeding. Volunteers are playing an integral part in improving the quality of life by reducing anti-social behaviour on the roads but also raising the awareness of the dangers of speeding.
If you would like to take part as a volunteer or to find out more details; please contact Cllr Ian Ward at Rayleigh Town Council on 01268 741880.
