Officers from our Operational Support Group (OSG) made seven arrests yesterday, tracking down suspects and supporting the rest of the force in their duties.
The OSG, made up of a number of specialist police officers including dog units and firearms, arrested two people separately in connection with sexual offences, one for a number of offences including GBH, one wanted in connection with stalking, one in connection with ABH and malicious communications, and another in connection with a burglary.
Officers also supported with the arrest of a man who had failed to attend court in another county and was detected in Essex.
As well as these arrests the OSG kept Essex safe, helping local officers in Chelmsford find a suspect connected to a number of assaults in Chelmsford, and attending a broken down vehicle in a dangerous position on the A12 before road policing officers arrived.
Chief Inspector Richard Baxter, who leads the OSG, said:
“Every day is different for the Operational Support Group. “We work hard to support officers when they have to execute warrants, locate wanted individuals and tackle ‘high-harm’ crimes like sexual offences. “We also work hard to make sure the public and the rest of our officers have the support they need when they need it. “Yesterday was an excellent day’s work by the team, and we look forward to doing it again tomorrow.”
