My name is Pat Smith and I have been with Essex Police since 1994. I started my career at Harwich Police Station working behind the scenes, manning the radios and the front counter. I moved to Clacton Police Station in 2000 carrying out a similar role and in 2006 I decided that as I enjoyed working with the community I applied to become a Police community Support Officer and I haven't looked back. I have dealt with many situations and always strive to give good customer service, I work mainly in Clacton Town Centre on the neighbourhood Policing team. I work with a very experienced team who are professional at all times and I am proud to work alongside them assisting to make the town safer. My roles are to provide a visible presence and assist the community where ever I am needed. I am friendly, so if you see me out and about please stop me for a chat, I am always happy to assist with any policing concerns you may have and hopefully make a difference in the community that I serve.

Below you can read about the issues that you have made a priority in your neighbourhood. We aim to act on the issues that matter the most to you.

Local Priority

Issue

Theft (shoplifitng)

Raised on 04/02/2014

Action

Our local Town Centre PCSO's provide hi-visibility and reassurance patrols to the general public and local businesses. TENBAC (Tendring Business Against Crime) is a scheme that is in place to assist in reducing the number of thefts. Staff members from most local stores have instant access to Police/PCSO's via a radio system. It has proved to be a success on numerous occasions with suspects being arrested immediately.

Local Priority

Issue

Anti Social Behaviour

Raised on 04/02/2014

Action

A Dispersal Order is in place covering the Town Centre. This allows officers to disperse persons from the area for up to 24 hours. If a person returns within this given time period, then they can be arrested for Breaching the Order. This helps officers deal with incidents of ASB by getting in early and nipping potential problems in the bud. There is also a Designated Public Places Order covering the Town Centre and Seafront. This Order is in place so officers are able to seize alcohol from a person who is committing ASB whilst drinking in a Public Place. We also carry out joint patrols with Police Accredited Wardens from Tendring District Council in relation to dealing with ASB.

Update

Clacton Town Centre shops have been affected by recent spate of Commercial Burglaries. We would strongly urge EVERYONE to review their own security measures and not wait until they are a victim of crime before changing something. Please ensure you place cash tills, charity boxes and valuable items out of sight.
Make it more difficult for someone to get easy access to your premises. If you would like any further security advice then please contact the team.

You can take action in a number of ways to help make your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit.
