Crays Hill community team
The Crays Hill community team is a small team of Pcs and
PCSOs that work closely with local residents to identify and
tackle issues of concern.

The team's two Pcs and two PCSOs, led by A/Sgt
Chris Hay, engage with the local community in the Crays Hill
area on a daily basis.
The existence of the dedicated community policing team means
that normal police resources within the Billericay and Wickford
area will not be affected by activity at Dale Farm.
The team attends numerous community events such as
Beat Surgeries, Neighbourhood Action Panels and local forums and
encourages local residents to meet with them at these events to
raise any concerns they may have. You can find details of these on
the meetings and events page.
Alternatively the team can contacted on 07595013668 or
by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is no answer, please leave a message and a member of the
team will get back to you as soon as they can.
