"Southend is made up of diverse communities and we will work closely with them in partnership with other agencies to keep people safe”.
“My role is about making the absolute best use of resources to protect the most vulnerable and target those offenders who are intent on causing the most harm."
"We will be sophisticated enough to adapt and change local priorities according to any emerging threats and trends but our main focus will always be around protecting the vulnerable and bringing persistent offenders to justice."
