So much for more policing in the town to combat asb, drugs etc and this happens in broad daylight, unbelievable.

During the day? we really are in trouble . the town centre is a mess, it needs high visibility proper police patrols all day every day. It'll become a no go area at this rate, it's already unsettling visting outside the water gardens. it's not right, something needs to be done and fast before this escalates. There's already blatant drug dealing, groups of males wearing balaclavas and face coverings hanging around, e-bikes and 'mopeds' being used at speed in the area. it's lawless

Any descriptions? When did descriptions stop being provided when crimes are committed?

Like the attack on a woman the other day, why do the police not issue full descriptions of the offenders, surely it would stop us jumping to conclusions, or are our assumptions correct.

What a Toilet for everyone to see in the town centre and read just how useless the system is. From the lack of Policing, CPS incompetence and judges keeping criminals out of prison this really is the 14 year conservative legacy and also why Starmer chose to go to the football club, even his Team knew how bad crime was in the shopping centre, it was Safer.

Yes it is awful, but when you get only 28% of people turning out to vote at local elections it will never change. If residents truly believe that this is caused by Tory miss rule, rather than lawlessness and lack of common decency from our fellow citizens, they should have gone to vote for an alternative PFCC. You had your chance and you wasted it! Why not try to make amends by emailing the current PFCC to pressure him to do something about it. [email protected].

If you truly believe that this lack or respect for people and property is the Tories fault perhaps the 72% who did not vote at the recent local elections could have made a difference, they could have elected a PFCC from a different political party. In the meantime why not email the current PFCC at [email protected] to see what plans he has for crime pevention in our town.

Tony Wiseman - I absolutely 100% agree with everything you say. People moan and whine about everything, then when they have the chance potentially make a change they can't be bothered to get off the sofa and go & vote.

That's not entirely true. I would have liked to have voted but unfortunately where I live I am not aloud to go in on my mobility scooter or have my little dog with me who is well behaved so I decided after that time if you want disabled people's votes then you need to make areas for the disabled accessable. This goes for some of the supermarkets too & other places. We may have lost the use of different mobilities but we haven't lost our minds. You wants us to live as independent as we possibly can yet Harlow is not going out of their way to make it any easier for many of us with whole lot of issues that need to be addressed by Harlow Council or the conservatives party that has just been relegated for yet another miserable year. Which is obviously shown in this voting of councils lost seats.

JR . Be careful what you give away about yourself. The PM may make you do a full time job

Harlow is proper in the gutter. This government is too busy making the billionaires super rich to concentrate on looking after the peasants... People get off your bottoms and vote in the general election. 28% turn out is embarrassing, look around your town its falling apart with these tories running the show.

JR and the 72%.. Did you know that anyone can register for a Postal Vote? That way you can vote, look after your dog and not worry about being turned away because you are in a mobility scooter. Follow this link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-postal-vote

This so called decline has nothing yo do with the useless tory government its to do with the cocaine epidemic that's steam Rollers it way across the globe. It's taken by right wing Conservative bankers in City pub toilets. It's taken by left wing Labour University lecturers at posh dinner parties. The problem is when people get a taste for it who simply can't afford it. When I was younger cocaine was for pop stars models and very rich people. Now people on very small or no incime are being targeted by large criminal organisations.
