We all want to feel safe where we live
Tackling illegal encampments, car cruisers, fly tipping and other criminal and anti-social behaviour needs a local authority and local police force that is well resourced and empowered to take action.
This is why the Government is giving more powers to tackle illegal traveller sites, tackle violent crime and is giving the largest boost in police funding in a decade. As such we can welcome 365 additional police officers for Essex that has the power to take action on these issues.
Thurrock needs a 21st Century police force ready to face the threats faced today.
