PATHETIC INCOMPETENT TOWN, Harlow Police station shuts around 5pm, crime starts after 5pm. No wonder Harlow is the worst town to live in UK in 2023. I won't be surprised if Harlow or Essex police don't catch them, their reputation speaks for It self. Is the victim okay ? I hope he gets well soon. #SAYNOTORACISM

Glenda. Did 999 stop functioning? If you want to report a crime in person it is assumed to be not so urgent. If you are in serious need of police. You call 999. Its that simple.

Dan wilson, you are not understanding what i am saying.someone commented that the police station clos3s at 5pm and then another person said its open 24/7 but i am sure also that it closes at 5pm well closes the doors.It would make a lot of people feel safer when in the town centre if they knew they could go into the police station if they felt threatened or worse, lets face it there is a lot of gangs about and a lot of undesirables hanging about in the town after 5pm.you say about phoning 999, i am aware lol but i have actually phoned 999 on 1 occasion and no one showed. I am sure many of us would feel safer knowing that wecan walk into the police after 5pm, its that simple.
