Essex Police latest news ›› Firearms incident in Colchester
Essex Police has used new legislation to protect women believed to be at risk of domestic violence 54 times since the system went live eight weeks ago.
On the morning of Monday July 14, I was pleased to facilitate a meeting in Harlow, called at short notice by Robert Halfon, involving Harlow’s MP, Essex Police, local and county councillors, and other representatives of the local community, to address concerns about traveller encampments in areas such as Third Avenue, Latton Common, and Harlow Common. It was also important to satisfy myself as Police and Crime Commissioner that the police response was appropriate.
Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said:
“The national covert police operation which has been running for the past six months targeting people accessing indecent images of children online is a crucial and timely piece of work.
Supporting victims of crime is one of the key areas of focus in the Police and Crime Plan for Essex and must be at the heart of everything we do.
