Countywide: Team Essex are looking out for you
Main article content
Our Special Constabulary have teamed up for the start of Euro 2020 this weekend and are looking forward to patrolling and responding to crime across the county as usual.
Remember, they are not here to stop you enjoying yourself or the football, they are here to keep you safe.
Last week, our Specials were out in force, too, during National Specials Weekend.
Between Friday night 4 June and Sunday 6 June, 173 special constables volunteered 1,746 hours of their own time to protect and serve our county.
And, during the whole of National Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June, they volunteered a total of 2,274 hours, helping people, keeping you safe and tackling crime.
And here are some of the highlights. Our Specials
- arrested nine people and assisted in the arrests of many more
- carried out 786 hours of high-visibility patrols
- attended the scenes of 20 road traffic collisions
- spent 44 hours helping to search for missing people
- carried out licensing checks
- stopped and searched 25 people
And you can expect more of the same, this weekend and every weekend, not just throughout the European Championships but all year round.
Our Specials are here to help – as are all our officers – but we need you to look after each other as well.
If you need us, we’re here for you. You can report crime to us online at www.essex.police.uk, speak to us on Live Chat, or call us on 101.
Always call 999 in an emergency.
