Increase public confidence, tackle anti-social behaviour and make the best use of our resources – these are just three of our aims.
You can find out more by taking a look at our Policing Plan, a document outlining our priorities to make sure Essex remains one of the safest counties in the country.
We understand policing priorities vary throughout the county. That’s where community policing comes in.
Our aim is to tackle the issues that affect your everyday life by listening to your concerns. We’ve created a team of police constables and PCSOs in each area to work with you and your community to make your community a safer place.
You can get up to date information on crime levels in your area using Crimemapper, a website that allows you to search by place name or postcode and find detailed statistics about where you live or work.
British Crime Survey
The British Crime Survey measures the amount of crime in England and Wales by asking people about crimes they have experienced in the last year.
