Reducing violence in our communities

Find out how we are working together across Essex to turn the tide against gangs and protect our most vulnerable people.

The work of our Violence and Vulnerability Unit is featured in the Association of Police and Crime Commissioner’s latest In Focus update, published today.

Read about our work on pages eight and nine.

Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner said: “Violence has no place in our society. As Police, Fire and Crime Commissioners, our mission must be to tackle violence and the root causes of violence; to work with the public and partners to create the safe and secure communities we all want and that allow all of us to flourish and prosper.

“Gangs that exploit vulnerable people and coerce them into a life of crime are preying on some of the people most in need in our society. While no agency can tackle this alone, in Essex we know that working together, through our Violence and Vulnerability Unit, can turn the tide against these gangs, protect those in need and help to ensure we all live prosperous and productive lives.”
