Nine more arrests tackling domestic, sexual, and theft offences
Main article content
Specialist officers made nine more arrests as we tackle domestic abuse, shoplifting, theft, and burglary.
Officers from our Operational Support Group (OSG) also seized four vehicles because the driver didn’t have any insurance.
The OSG are a specialist team who support other teams from across the force in carrying out activity which is vital to keep people safe and progress investigations.
This work can include conducting high visibility patrols, making arrest attempts, and carrying out warrants, as well as proactive patrols on our roads.
They made arrests in Southend and Basildon in connection with investigations into domestic, sexual, and violent offences.
Two more arrests were made in Basildon for driving and theft offences after a vehicle failed to stop for officers.
A woman was arrested in the Braintree district in connection with a series of burglaries.
Meanwhile there were also arrests in Chelmsford and South Woodham Ferrers for drug driving offences.
Detective Chief Inspector Jennifer Bliss said:
“This was a really productive day of activity supporting teams from across Essex Police.
“The work of the OSG is important to getting suspects into custody and keeping our communities safe.
“This is work they do every day, and they’ll be out across the county doing it again today.”
