Great Dunmow remains a relatively low crime neighbourhood but we recognise that if you have been a victim or witness of crime the perception may be very different.

In order to combat this fear of crime we will continue with high visibility patrols in the town. We also engage on a regular basis with partner agencies such as the local council and housing associations to find alternative ways to combat crime and address other issues in the neighbourhood.

Please feel free to contact the team if you have any issues that you would like to raise with us.

It is always important to look at your home security, even more so at Christmas. Remember when you are out to lock windows and doors, ensure alarms are set if you have them installed.Most burglars are opportunists, so do not leave presents visible through windows. If you have any information to assist us please contact Great Dunmow Neighbourhood Policing Team on telephone number 101 extension 485100. You can remain anonymous or contact Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

If you notice any suspicious persons in your area please contact us on Tel: 101.

Are You Interested in Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch is the biggest and most successful Crime Prevention initiative in the UK. Behind it lies a simple idea that standing together makes communities stronger in the face of crime. This central value is shared by millions of people around the country.

Of course it is the responsibility of the Police Force to monitor and fight crime; however they can be far more effective in doing so with your help. Neighbourhood Watch is a voluntary organisation which works in active partnership with the Police. Neighbourhood Watch Schemes can:

• Cut crime and the opportunities for crime
• Advise on how to protect yourself and your property
• Help and reassure those who live in fear of crime
• Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities
• Assist in protecting the vulnerable against crimes and hard selling.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just concerned with reducing crime figures – it’s about helping to create communities who care. It helps local people, young and old, to stand together and can make a real contribution to improving the quality of life in your neighbourhood.

The activity of Watch members can foster a new Community Spirit and belief in the community’s ability to tackle problems in partnership with the Police, Local Council and Businesses.

Other benefits include regular Crime Prevention updates to help keep your home and belongings safe, plus the extra security which belonging to a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme offers, means that you can often get a premium discount on your home insurance.

If you are interested in becoming involved in a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, please contact:
