THE LEADER of Harlow Labour has welcomed Tuesday night’s opportunity for local councillors to quiz the police on a variety of their performances.
Councillor Chris Vince said: “I welcome the opportunity for Harlow council’s scrutiny committee to ask questions of Essex Police tonight. I hope to attend myself, and thank the officers in attendance for their time.
It is also welcomed that the crime data for Harlow has been provided in advanced so that committee members can properly digest it.
The low solve rates in certain crimes, in particular domestic violence and sexual violence, should be of concern to all of us and I hope those officers present are able to provide reassurance to the committee to tackle these serious issues.
“I note that in the data there is no mention of cyber crime, something that the current Conservative Police, Fire and Crime commissioner, spoke of being a main focus of his. In fact he went as far as to say that there were less police in communities because he wanted a greater focus on online criminality. Perhaps this is just an oversight.
“The reality is that after over a decade of cuts to this County’s policing, there are still 300 less officers than in 2010, Communities and police alike are feeling the burden. I can only hope for re-assurances from officers that some of this burden is being lifted”.
What about the drug dealers that hang around toddbrook flats everyday night and day.We do not see any police around here at all.unless we ring then.
Everything I’d based on evidence these days. I was ambushed by my downstairs neighbour and another bloke with him when I walked down stairs to put my recycling out. He assaulted me. I reported it and because I hadn’t recorded it anywhere I have no case due to lack of evidence. This makes me feel unbelieved. Now Everytime I walk out my flat, I have to record it , just in case this butter bloke who Lou fed underneath me kicks off. Thanks police for doing nothing to help vulnerable women in our community.

What about the weird people hanging about and strange people in cars parading up and down church end flats????? Those flats have been raided many times. Looks like the drug dealers are back there. It’s not very nice when you walk out of your own house and see this. It makes me and my family feel unsafe in our own neighbour hood. You can start police, by Friday nights and most nights really, but Fridays are worse. You can start by making your presence known around church end by the flats. New drug dealers are operating there. I’ve lived here years and I shouldn’t feel unsafe in my own neighbourhood. You just do let care though do you police! We pay your wages with our council tax and you can’t even nick drug dealers.
