Community policing is about local policing, listening to your concerns, acting upon issues that matter most to you and helping you feel more confident in your community. They are made up of police officers, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables under the command of an Inspector.
The CPTs are there to protect people from harm, speak with communities about their concerns, gather information and help find answers to local problems. They work closely with the 14 Community Safety Partnership teams across Essex and also talk regularly with local authorities, other Emergency Services, Health providers and charities.
Police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are going to be in the area speaking to local residents and businesses and answering your questions about local policing. We will be listening to your concerns to better understand the things you feel are issues in your community and will work with our local partners to get these resolved. Please note that the event may be cancelled at short noticed due to operational demands. Details of which will be posted on the district’s Facebook and Twitter pages. For more information, please contact the team using the contact us tab or by calling 101.
