Main article content
We are continuously working to prevent crime from occurring to keep the county safe.
Our force has a variety of teams consisting of officers and staff who specialise in different areas all with the overall aim of helping people, keeping people safe and catching criminals.
Many of these teams adopt a proactive approach and focus on issues within communities including identifying individuals who may pose a risk. Our Child Sexual Exploitation Proactive Investigation Team do just this and work hard to protect young vulnerable people from being subjected to exploitation.
Recently the team secured a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) against a man who we believe poses a risk to vulnerable people in Burnham-on-crouch.
Mahmun Miah, 33 of no fixed address was given an SHPO on Thursday, 19 October and this order is for a period of 10 years.
Detective Sergeant Ben Rushmere from our CSE Proactive Investigation Team said:
“The police do so much more than just turning up to crime scenes and investigating matters which have been reported to us. “Catching criminals needs a proactive approach as well as a reactive one and our team are constantly monitoring concerns within a community to keep people safe. “In this recent case, we understood that the community, specifically parents in the community were concerned about this man. In instances where we cannot pursue a criminal conviction, we think it’s important to use all the tools at our disposal to keep people safe. “This order means that he is unable to have any unsupervised contact with any female under 18 years, use the internet to contact any female under the age of 18 years old and prevents him from offering gifts, alcohol and/or cigarettes to any female under the age of 18 years old. "This will ensure young girls are safe from his predatory behaviour."
