To depict Essex Police in print, film or a TV broadcast, you may need an intellectual property (IP) agreement or licence.

To request the use of our IP, get in touch using our quick and simple online form.

The Essex Police logo, uniforms, cap badges, royal armorial (crest), warrant badge, vehicle liveries, paperwork and other items are all copyright of Essex Police. Some of these are also trademarked.

We may grant permission and approval for an image to appear as incidental, such as in the background at a football match, or directing traffic.

Where you need police for advertising purposes, we’d suggest you depict a generic police force, with no identifying logos or badges.
