District Commander update

Southend is already a low crime area but our work with partners within the Southend Crime and Disorder Partnership has seen crime levels fall even further which is excellent news.

My promises to you as your District Commander are:

  • To always remember that behind every crime is a victim, family and wider community that are affected

  • To listen carefully to the issues that affect you and your families and do our very best to help

  • To tell you how and when we can help and when, on occasions, others are better able to assist.

  • To work hard to further reduce crime and anti-social behaviour

  • To strive to ensure those who commit crime are caught and brought to justice

We deliver our policing service through our Neighbourhood Policing Teams. These teams are dedicated to:

  • Improving our visibility and reducing the fear of crime

  • Gaining the trust and confidence of the local community

  • Tackling the causes and effects of crime and anti-social behaviour

  • Being identifiable and known within the local community

  • Tackling crime through targeting repeat offenders

  • Building on successful local partnerships within the community to solve problems
