POLICE INFORMATION

Throughout my service I have seen a lot of changes which is expected in a large organisation such as ours.  However  with the formation of the Community Policing Team (CPT) in 2015 it saw a reduction in the number of community officers and the withdrawal of ‘beat officers’ from local areas. My concern has always been that local residents do not know who their local officers are and the Community Policing Team had become in some cases a faceless entity.

Since taking over in February, my priorities have been to change  how we interact with our public, increasing community engagement, increasing the number of officers on the Community Policing Team (an ongoing battle). The Braintree District is huge a total of 236.18 square miles and with an approximate population of 147,084 which is increasing.

The numbers of officers on CPT are small, however I also have some of the best officers available, who want to give the best service possible to our residents. In order to achieve this the officers and PCSO’s have been allocated areas of responsibility. Why has this been introduced? To bring about a culture of ownership, pride, identifying & understanding local issues early, signposting to the correct agency and having better engagement with our residents.

The areas involved have been separated into three main location based on the three main towns, Halstead, Braintree & Witham.

The reason for this email is to share with you the details of your local Community officers who will have responsibility of the Halstead area:

PC       3655    Craig Wheeler             email address Craig.Wheeler@essex.pnn.police.uk

PC       2613    Andy Pilgrim                email address Andy.Pilgrim@essex.pnn.police.uk

PC       2457    Paul Norman               email address Paul.Norman@essex.pnn.police.uk

PCSO 70714  John Thorne                email address John.Thorne@essex.pnn.police.uk

PCSO 70955 Joanne Cooper             email address Joanne.Cooper@essex.pnn.police.uk

These officers will be making contact over the next few weeks with the parish and town councils to introduce themselves and will be the initial point of contact for any community concerns.

The Community Policing Team does have its own email address which is monitored daily BraintreeandUttlesfordCPT@essex.pnn.police.uk. Please feel free to contact myself or any of the team if you have any questions or concerns. 

Please remember to call 999 in any emergency or 101 for non-urgent enquiries.

FREE COMPOST BINS - Braintree District Council are working with Essex County Council, and we would like to offer our residents (new to, or thinking about home composting) the opportunity to claim a 220 or 330 litre compost bin for free, in return for attending a 2-3 hour training course with our WasteBuster volunteers (on a weekday evening or weekend) in February or March 2019.

If you think this is something your residents would be interested in, we only ask for;

  • A suitable free of charge location (all we need is a room that can accommodate 12-15 people for a presentation and some activities).
  • Where best to promote in your locations.

 If you would be so kind as to give us this information by Friday 9th November, and once we have a date from Essex Council County, we will be back in touch with you.

Many thanks in advance.

Kind Regards
