Welcome to the Basildon district web page.
District Commander update
Above: Chief Insp Glen Pavelin
Basildon is a vibrant part of South Essex and continues to offer
a variety of opportunity and challenges.
2012 offered many policing challenges. Challenges included the
Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, The Olympic Torch Relay and
supporting the policing response the Olympic and Paralympics Games.
We have taken part in a number of partnership initiatives and
policed many events across the District. As we go into 2013 I will
continue to drive the team towards reducing crime, anti-social
behaviour and providing an excellent service. Going into the last
quarter of the year we are progressing well towards achieving a
reduction across all crime and anti-social behaviour but there is
still much work to do.
Burglary of a persons home is a despicable crime and one that
far too often affects people within Basildon. I appeal to everybody
to report suspicious behaviour either in person, over the telephone
or via crime stoppers. Please pass any criminal intelligence you
may have onto us so that we can deal with it appropriately. It may
be the last piece of a jigsaw that enables us to act to prevent
I will continue to review our business and refresh methods to
make us as efficient as possible. We will ensure that we provide
the best possible service and we will communicate with victims,
partners and the wider community to reassure and update. We will be
visible within the community and develop relationships with all
groups within the community.
I would ask that you join us as we continue to tackle crime and
anti-social behaviour within your area. Please report suspicious
behaviour, tell us about those who effect your quality of life and
impart information that will assist us in bring criminals to
justice. You can do this by contacting the local officers for your
area, stopping and speaking with one of the team out on patrol or
by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
