Welcome to the Essex Police website for Stansted Airport.
Policing an international airport poses challenges over and above
those encountered in everyday police work. Here, at Stansted, we
also have to be prepared to deal with more specialised incidents,
such as counter terrorism, immigration, and major events relating
to the aviation industry.
Although Stansted is the 4th busiest airport in the UK, recorded
crime here continues to decrease. We also solve over two thirds of
those crimes suggesting that Stansted is not only one of the safest
airports but also the one where criminals are more likely to get
caught! This is not achieved through luck. The policing teams here
work very closely with partners, such as: Stansted Airport Limited;
the UK Border Force; the airline operators; and, the many retailers
on site, to make it the safe place that it is.
I am always looking to improve the quality of policing at
Stansted and we now have named officers, and priorities, for both
of our Neighbourhoods. My teams aim to be in the right place at the
right time to provide reassurance, reduce crime, and deter
anti-social behaviour. Consequently, please feel free to speak to
them if you: have any concerns; want to pass on information; or,
would like to discuss local issues.
In short, Stansted Airport is a very safe place however please
continue to be vigilant and, if you see, or hear, anything
suspicious, do not hesitate to report it to the police
