Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to hold in-person public meeting in Maldon District
The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC), Roger Hirst, will be holding an in-person public meeting in Maldon District on Monday 9th October 2023 at 7pm to 8pm.
Residents of Maldon District are invited to come along and put their questions and concerns to the expert panel which includes Police Fire and Crime Commissioner, Roger Hirst, Chief/Inspector Paul Ballard, Essex Police, Maldon Community Safety Manager Spencer Clarke, and a senior member of the Fire and Rescue Service.
The meeting is being held at the Maldon United Reformed Church, Market Hill, CM9 4PZ.
Roger said: “Our public meetings are a great way to hear directly from local communities about any concerns they might have, areas of activity that are in place and are working well, and what we can do better.”
At the meeting, attendees can find out more about local initiatives and operations that are being carried out in the district, such as the recent work undertaken in partnership with the Community Protection Team at Maldon District Council to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) including driving and speeding.
ASB operations have also taken place following reports of anti-social behaviour in Heybridge. Police put together an action plan that included joint patrols with the Community Engagement Officer from the Heybridge Parish Council, the Tri-Service Officer, and the Community Safety Enforcement Officers from Essex Police.
The Maldon Town Policing Team have also been tackling organised crime and working closely with immigration. Since the start of January 2023, the team have made twenty-one arrests that have been directly linked to organised crime.
There has also been good news around the reduction of some offences in Maldon, including ASB which has reduced by 11.9 per cent, Robbery by 13 per cent and theft from vehicle has reduced by 33 per cent. However, Shoplifting and Burglary have both seen an increase.
