Welcome to the Brentwood district web page.
District Commander update
Above: Chief Insp Tracey Harman
I am delighted to be appointed as District Commander for Epping
Forest and Brentwood.
I return to the district having been the neighbourhood policing
team Inspector at both Loughton and Brentwood in the past.
Since then, I have worked within public protection, Rape
investigation and the Serious Crime Directorate.
I return to lead a highly motivated team of officers and support
staff, all of whom are committed to delivering a prompt and
professional service to victims of crime and the wider
Epping Forest and Brentwood provides many challenges, one of
which is the fact we border both the Metropolitan and Hertfordshire
police areas. The borders, as well as extensive transport
network, provide opportunities for travelling criminals to target
the district and therefore a priority is to make these borders
secure and ensure robust working relationships with our cross
Burglary of a persons home is a despicable crime and one that
far too often affects people within Epping and Brentwood. 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 further offences.
One of our main priorities is to provide the best service we can
to victims of crime, giving you a prompt and professional service
where you will be treated with compassion and supported and updated
throughout your interaction with us.
I will continue to improve on the strong links we have with our
partners in tackling crime and anti social behaviour and have
inherited a highly motivated and committed team who I will continue
to drive forwards to deliver an efficient service you deserve.
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.
I look forward to providing you the service you want and
