Officers from our Operational Support Group (OSG) made nine arrests over the weekend as they continue their work to keep you safe and tackle those who pose the greatest risk.
Between Friday (31 March) and yesterday (Sunday 2 April), the OSG carried out a range of activities including high visibility patrols, planned arrest attempts and proactive vehicle stops.
This work was in support of a variety of teams across the force and in a number of locations to help provide reassurance, deter crime, and bring those suspected of high risk offences into custody.
They also helped respond to reports of incidents.
They arrested people in connection with domestic abuse, serious violence, burglary, and aggravated burglary investigations.
Chief Inspector Richard Baxter, who leads the OSG, said:
“My team carried out a huge amount, and variety, of work across the weekend all in support of teams across the force.
“This work helps get victims of crime justice, reassure the public, and brings people suspected of serious offences into custody.
“Whether it be on the roads or in our cities, in our towns or in our villages, if you think you can commit crime in Essex you are wrong.
“We’ll stop your car and we’ll knock on your door – you cannot hide from Essex Police.”
