The Basildon Community Policing Team is made up of police officers, police Community Support Officers and Specials under the command of an Inspector and a Chief Inspector District Commander.
The team, along with the Town Centre Team, aims to protect people from harm, speak with communities about their concerns, gather information and help find answers to local problems.
District Commander: Chief Inspector Steve Parry
I’m really proud to be the new District Commander for Basildon. I have worked as a uniformed officer for over 21 years, with much time spent working within community policing, at various ranks.
I am keen to further develop partnership working, proactive policing and public engagement within Basildon. It is really important to me that we work together; listening and responding to the different needs of the Communities in Basildon.
My focus will be to target those crimes which pose the greatest risk to the public, target the offenders that cause the most harm and to protect those who are most vulnerable.
