Posted on Friday 3rd May 2024

Roger Hirst, Conservative, has been re-elected as Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex for a third successive term with a promise for more local, visible and accessible policing to drive down crime and anti-social behaviour.

He has also pledged to reduce knife crime, protect young people and improve road safety to reduce road death in Essex to zero. Protecting women and girls from violence and domestic abuse and ensuring vulnerable people are protected were also included in his election manifesto.

Roger Hirst said: “I’m grateful to the people of Essex for their endorsement of what we have been working very hard to achieve over the past eight years. We have successfully grown Essex Police, recruiting over 905 extra officers, making Essex Police the largest and strongest it has ever been and we will work to maintain this high level of officers. Crime and anti-social behaviour is falling in Essex and we will work to get crime down again.

“We are improving the culture of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service with a focus on prevention and protection, which is saving lives.”

He added: “I would like to say thank you to everyone involved in the election across the county, in particular the Police Area Returning Officer Pamela Donnelly and her team.”

Voting took place on Thursday with the votes counted and announced at Colchester’s Charter Hall today (Friday) by the Police Area Returning Officer Pam Donnelly, Chief Executive of Colchester Borough Council.
