Essex Police and Essex Police Authority seek views on public services

ESSEX Police is undergoing a major change programme in order to save money whilst “continuing to provide a first class service to the public”.

The force will become one of the first to switch to the national police non-emergency telephone number. From July members of the public will be able to contact Essex Police with a non-emergency by calling 101. Other forces will also be joining this service throughout the year.

During June and early July, Essex Police and Essex Police Authority will be asking for public opinions on the changes.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “Your views are extremely important to Essex Police and Essex Police Authority.

“We would be grateful if you could take time to complete a survey. Your answers will help to shape the future of policing in Essex.”
