The Southend Community Policing Team is made up of police officers, police Community Support Officers and Specials under the command of an Inspector and a Chief Inspector District Commander.
The team aims to protect people from harm, speak with communities about their concerns, gather information and help find answers to local problems.
District Commander: Chief Insp Simon Anslow
“Essex Police must place its officers where they are needed most – and that is where the most harm is being caused in our communities. That will now be the focus of my Community Policing Team.
"The team will be locally based, locally accountable and will prioritise the issues causing the greatest harm in the Southend community.”
