The staff and officers of Essex Police have been working hard to prepare for this week’s Royal visit from His Majesty the King and the Queen Consort.
In support of our partners at Colchester City Council, Essex Police will be standing up a large policing operation to ensure the people of our county enjoy this momentous occasion safely.
Ahead of the Royal visit on Tuesday 7 March, we are urging people to ensure they have taken practical steps to ensure they travel to and from Colchester safely and to ensure they remain safe throughout the day and make the most of enjoying this historic event:
Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Nolan said:
“It is the greatest privilege for Essex Police to be involved in supporting our partners to prepare for and welcome His Majesty the King – it’s a momentous occasion for our force and our county.
“We want everyone to enjoy the day as safely as they can and ask that everyone remains vigilant on the day.
"If you need us we will have lots of officers in Colchester City on the day supporting the policing of the event so find us if you need us and please say hello. We are very excited to be joining our community to welcome His Majesty the King and the Queen Consort.”
