We Want You! Help Us Make Essex Safer

Your Police and Crime Commissioner needs to hear from you.

So far, the majority of responses are from white males over the age of 60.

This doesn’t represent you. So, have your say!

The people of Essex have potential to change the way our Police and Fire & Rescue Service is run, with a 12 week consultation ending on 10 May.

The new Policing and Crime Act 2017 offers the opportunity to transform local fire and rescue governance, enabling police and crime commissioners to become the fire and rescue authority where a strong local case is made.

How you can help

Just watch this video and answer two quick questions here.

Police and Crime Commissioner Roger Hirst said:

“Together we have developed a local case for Essex to strengthen our emergency services, improve joint working and deliver significant savings. We have an opportunity to share knowledge; back office services; make better use of estates, and help protect vulnerable people in joined-up ways. The resources freed up by this would be reinvested in front line services and enable both emergency services to better protect the people of Essex.”
