The Thurrock 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: Detective Chief Inspector Richard Baxter
"My CPT, working alongside key partners, will be focused on protecting the most vulnerable members of our communities, problem solving emerging crime and hidden harms such as preventing violent extremism, hate crime, modern day slavery, gangs and anti-social behaviour vulnerability issues.
We will also address youth offending and re-offending which will help address volume crimes such as dwelling burglary and violence against the person.
