We're offering more ways of reporting non-emergency crime and antisocial behaviour, making it easier and more convenient for you to get in contact with us.
We're encouraging people to go online to make non-emergency reports to help ease demand on our 101 telephone service, enabling us to provide a better, more efficient service for our communities, and assist those asking for our help as quickly as possible.
Report antisocial behaviour online by going to www.essex.police.uk and clicking on the 'report' button and then select 'antisocial behaviour'.
Request a collision report by going to www.essex.police.uk and clicking on the 'request' button and then select 'a collision report' option.
Report a Covid-19 regulation breach online by going to www.essex.police.uk and clicking on the 'report' button and then select the 'breach of coronavirus (Covid-19) measures' option.
Find out what's going on in your community by typing in your town or postcode into the search bar under 'find your area' heading.
One of the new ways of contacting us is through 'Live Chat'; our online chat service, which allows people to send and receive real-time direct messages with our online operators.
Every day between 7am-11pm, you can report non-emergency crime or provide us with information through this service, which you can access on the homepage of our website by selecting the 'Live Chat' button at the bottom right of the page.
The service can be accessed from a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or even a mobile phone, making it easier and more convenient for you to report non-emergency crime, antisocial-behaviour or share information with us.
