More Bobbies On The Beat in Brentwood and Epping
As part of an Essex-wide increase in community policing in 23 town centres, there are now two new officers in Brentwood, two in Loughton and two in Waltham Abbey.
These additional members of the Town Centre Team will continue to prioritise community issues such as:
- crime against local businesses, including shoplifting
- anti social behaviour in town centres
- ensuring that licensing agreements are followed by clubs, bars and pubs
New police base in Brentwood
This follows the opening of a new policing base in the centre of Brentwood last year.
The new facility is part of Brentwood Borough Council’s offices at the Town Hall in Ingrave Road. Officers use it to begin and end their shifts, as well as for appointments to see victims of crime. It is also the home of the detectives who investigate the most serious offences in the town.
The former Police station in London Road, Brentwood was sold off in 2017. The closure of this and many other stations in the county was due to the £30m of maintenance required to keep them up to standard. It was felt that this money could be better spent on more officers and updated technology to fight crime.
Sadly the new police base in the Town Hall does not have a front desk to service the public. So the visible presence of the new officers out and about in the community is a chance to interact with the public actually on the street.
Home Security in Brentwood and Epping
Being confident that it’s safer than ever to socialise in Brentwood and Epping is great. But is someone watching YOUR home while you’re out? Even with these extra officers, Police can’t be everywhere as a deterrent to criminals.
But did you know, only home security systems that have been installed, maintained and monitored by an accredited company can qualify for a Police Response?
An alarm that goes off but gets ignored may as well not be there!
It’s very easy to waste your money when you don’t know what you don’t know.
