Early this year the Government delivered on its 2019 manifesto commitment to recruit an additional 20,000 police officers by March 2023, in fact they exceeded it.
Delivering on this pledge and keeping our communities safe is one of my key priorities for our constituency. With an additional 500 officers and an increased budget of nearly £364 million, Essex Police are focused on tackling on resident's priorities, including rural crime.
I understand how rural crime can have a huge impact on our communities. It is vital residents feel safe in their homes, town and villages. I want to know if you and your local area have been impacted.
Too often rural crime goes unreported and we need accurate information to reduce crime in our area. Please take a few moments of your time to complete my survey and share your concerns on rural crime.
As your MP, I am determined to deal with the issues affecting our constituency. I will report back on the results of this survey and work with the local police and authorities to ensure our area is a safe place for all of us.
If you have any questions or feedback, do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
