TAKE a look at how the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex is working with Essex Police and Essex County Fire and Rescue Service to keep everyone who lives, works and travels in Essex safe.
The PFCC has published his annual reports which reflect on the progress being made against the priorities in the Police and Crime Plan and Fire and Rescue Plan.
The reports highlight what has been achieved over the year by both Services and how the PFCC is working in partnership with community safety stakeholders and commissioned services to get crime down, protect the vulnerable and keep communities safe.
Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “The annual reports for the police and fire and rescue service help shine a spotlight on the successes and areas of challenge across both Services.
“Rightly so, we set ourselves tough targets in our plans, based on what the people of Essex and our partners told us was important.
“We are on track to recruit an extra 900 police officers by March 2023, and we are increasing investment in our neighbourhood and community policing teams, while the Fire and Rescue Service continues to develop and deliver on its prevention, protection and response programmes.
“We have achieved a lot in the last year, and I want to thank all staff across the police and the fire and rescue service for the work they do in making our communities safe places to live, work and thrive.”
