Officers from our Operational Support Group made a further nine arrests yesterday as part of investigations relating to driving offences, sexual offences, and modern slavery.
The OSG carrying out activity across the county supporting teams from around the force to protect the public from harm and bring suspects into custody.
In total, they made nine arrests as part of investigations into threats to kill, serious sexual offences, shoplifting, modern slavery, and driving offences.
They carried arrest attempts and proactive stops on our roads.
As part of their work, they also seized a car after the driver was found to have no insurance.
They also carried out a search of a man believed to be smoking cannabis. When drugs were found, the man accepted a community resolution.
Chief Inspector Richard Baxter, who leads the OSG, said:
“My team have worked hard to bring suspects into custody and tackle those posing a risk to people on our roads.
“They are out every day making arrests, being visible in your communities, and helping keep you safe on our roads.
“This is really important work supporting teams across Essex Police and it makes a real difference in keeping you safe.”
