 A Message from Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner

Have your say on policing priorities in Essex
for the next four years.

Three and a half years ago, you were asked what you wanted from Essex Police. You wanted more local, visible, accessible policing..

Essex Police is already recruiting 368 officers thanks to the funding we have delivered. On top of this, the Government announced a further 135 officers will be coming to Essex meaning the county will have 503 additional police officers by Spring 2021.

Have your say on what you want from your police force for the next four years so we can shape our next Police and Crime Plan by clicking here.
