The Tendring 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, alongside the Town Centre Teams, 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 Paul Wells
“Making sure the Tendring district is a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit is the number one priority of the local and community policing teams here.
“We detect and prevent crime effectively through partnership work, efficient and proportionate investigations, high visibility policing and by using support from specialist colleagues.
“Community engagement and involvement enables us to do our job effectively and we thrive on information and intelligence from you. Whether this relates to anti-social behaviour or information of a more serious nature we want to hear about it.
“Finally, please look out for each other and the most vulnerable people in your family, neighbourhood and social circles. If you think someone is being abused or exploited, let us know so we can make a difference together.”
