    YouTube: mid-90s Essex Police documentary

    Mid 90s documentary on sort of 'anti-crime' group and community police team.
  2. Essex Police is investigating claims that an officer ordered a driver to remove a "B******* to Brexit" sign from his car. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/news.sky.com/story/amp/police-officer-orders-driver-to-remove-b-to-brexit-car-sign-11870098
  3. Five police officers will face gross misconduct proceedings after a man lost his fingertips when they were trapped under a toilet rim at an Essex police station. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/essex-police-misconduct-man-fingertips-chopped-toilet-seat-a4128996.html
  4. Interesting news report but you'd think if they were threatening the crew with violence to take it over they would have been arrested and investigated for more than just immigration offences.

    Essex police trousers - where to buy?

    Hello, I am a new recruit for Essex police and want to purchase some more uniform but can't find an exact match for the trousers - has anyone else found them somewhere? If so, where did you find them? Thanks in advance!
  6. Essex police have apologised to alleged victims of child abuse after uncovering problems with the effectiveness of 30 investigations. Ch Con Stephen Kavanagh said he was “very disappointed” to discover the failings and said the cases had been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. “I was very disappointed to learn of this and I am now determined that we find out exactly what has happened and to rectify things quickly, not least for the victims,” he said. “The force is working hard to put in place new systems to stop this from happening again. If individuals have failed in their duties then they will be held to account, but we will also look at all possible aspects of why this has happened.” Most of the 30 investigations relate to the work of the child abuse investigation team that covers north Essex, the force said. New officers had been put in charge of all 30 investigations and a senior retired detective had been brought in to review the ongoing child abuse investigations, it added. “We have contacted the families of those involved in these investigations to let them know what is happening and apologise for the undoubted distress this has caused them,” the force said. Essex police force was criticised last year after it emerged that officers failed to investigate teacher Martin Goldberg for 10 months after receiving allegations about him from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre. Goldberg, 46, secretly recorded thousands of images of naked boys at Thorpe Hall school in Southend before killing himself a day after police visited him on 9 September. Information about Goldberg was passed to Essex police in November 2013 after it was handed to Ceop, now part of the National Crime Agency, by Toronto police in July 2012. The intelligence, dubbed Project Spade, was an international sting that caught people attempting to purchase child abuse images over the internet. Information about 2,300 suspected paedophiles in the UK, including Goldberg, was not disseminated to forces around the UK until November 2013 after it became part of the National Crime Agency.

  7. A man who was sprayed in the face with CS gas by police officers has been awarded a £21,000 compensation pay-out. Essex Police agreed the out-of-court settlement to Alan Lethbridge but has not apologised. Mr Lethbridge, 34, of Romford, said he has had mental health problems since being sprayed during his arrest in Brentwood High Street in 2009. The former builder said he hoped to "rebuild his life" with the money and work again. Mr Lethbridge bought a van with part of his compensation money and is about to return to work, as a delivery driver, for the first time since his arrest. "The money just doesn't do it justice and it wasn't about the money," he said. "It was about the principle that I hadn't done anything in the first place. "It's just a relief that it is all finished with, but it's disappointing that I never got an apology." Defensive skills training In 2010 the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigated and decided Mr Lethbridge's arrest was lawful, but the two people who were sprayed with CS gas should have been given a clear warning. A TV cameraman filmed the CS spray being discharged close to Mr Lethbridge's face. Following the IPCC inquiry, the three police officers involved went on a defensive skills training refresher course and the officer who deployed the CS spray was given advice on its use. The Crown Prosecution Service had previously decided the officers should not face any criminal charges. Mr Lethbridge was convicted for spitting in the face of a paramedic in April 2010, but it was quashed after an appeal. Charges of being drunk and disorderly and using threatening words or behaviour were dropped. "For the five to six years I've been on anti-depressants, the doctors diagnosed me with post-traumatic stress disorder and I've been having counselling," said Mr Lethbridge. "My life has been complete hell for the past five years." Essex Police told BBC Look East it would not issue an apology as Mr Lethbridge's complaint to Essex Police was not upheld by the IPCC.

  8. Shocking footage that has emerged online shows the moment when a cyclist was knocked off his bike before being attacked by a van driver. The cyclist's head camera captured the event, which begins with the van travelling alongside the cyclist. In the footage someone can be heard shouting "get off the phone you muppet". It is not clear whether that comes from the cyclist or from inside the van. Soon after, the van steers close to the cyclist and knocks him to the ground. The driver of the van can then be seen leaving his vehicle and confronting the cyclist, who at this point is still on the ground. Both men start shouting and a fight breaks out between the two - soon after that the camera fell to the ground. A fight breaks out between the two men (YouTube) The police say they are aware of the incident - which they believe took place in Hornchurch, Essex - and want to speak to the cyclist who was assaulted. Essex Police ✔ @EssexPoliceUK Follow We're aware of a You Tube video of a cyclist being assaulted + would advise the victim to contact police on 101 so it can be investigated 4:07 PM - 15 Jan 2015 Taylor Landscaping - the name shown on the side of the van - declined to comment when contacted. The company is a member of online trades portal TrustATrader, which vets companies based on the quality of their work. A spokesperson for TrustATrader said it had suspended Taylor Landscaping's membership pending a police investigation into the incident. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/virals/11349859/Watch-Cyclist-knocked-off-bike-then-attacked-by-van-driver.html Nice folks out there!
  9. I'm sure this will have been mentioned elsewhere on the site but I thought this deserved repeating in the Essex section. I'd like to add my congratulations to Derek. I've been privileged to have worked alongside him on front line duties a lot over the last year or two and he's a top-notch officer. Here's the article: --------------------------------------------------- A high-ranking special police officer has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours list for services to policing. Essex Police Assistant Chief Officer of Special Constabulary Derek Hopkins, 62, has been with the force for 34 years. Mr Hopkins said: "I am, of course, extremely proud and feel honoured to have had my voluntary service recognised in this way. “I will not say that I have enjoyed every minute of my 34 years service with Essex Police Special Constabulary – the role of a police officer is often challenging, sometimes traumatic and occasionally dangerous. "I have, however, always found it very rewarding and am privileged to play a small part in an organisation that has, at its heart, people who really want to make a difference in their communities often without thanks or recognition for their enthusiasm and dedication. "I accept the award in the knowledge that it reflects the efforts of all my volunteer colleagues who work tirelessly, fitting their duties around their normal jobs and family lives, to assist full-time colleagues in delivering an enhanced policing service. "I have worked alongside some fantastic people who have always been prepared to guide me in the right direction. “I wish to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues, past and present, for their support and friendship during my time with Essex Police. "I must also recognise that I would not have been able to devote as much time to volunteering as I have without the unwavering support of my family.” Mr Hopkins also has a long association as a Scout leader and instructor and has helped with local fundraising and social groups. Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh said: "I am delighted for Derek and his family and extremely grateful for the continued and enduring commitment Derek provides to the force. “His drive, knowledge and sheer dedication to serving Essex on a voluntary basis is highly recognised. "Derek has dedicated almost 40 years of his life to voluntarily policing Essex, without any financial reward. This is a magnificent achievement which highlights his immense devotion to Essex Police and the public we serve. "He has made an enormous contribution to the safety of residents of Essex at considerable personal sacrifice. His vision and passion for volunteering in the county has set an outstanding example to people both in policing and outside. "Derek’s commitment to serving the people of this county and his determination in making Essex a safe county is inspiring and I would like to sincerely congratulate him on receiving this MBE.” Chief Officer Essex of Special Constabulary Leon Dias said: "I would like to add my sincere congratulations to Derek on receiving his MBE, this very public recognition of his dedication to policing and is a fitting testament to his 34 years of voluntary service to Essex Police. "I have worked alongside Derek for the past 7 years and his energy, enthusiasm and determination to make a difference within our communities is an inspiration." ----------------------------------------------- source: http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/11695176.High_ranking_Essex_Police_officer_from_Silver_End_awarded_MBE/?ref=rss

    Hi, can any of the new specials on the latest version of onefile count up how many tasks you have before completing phase 2 & 3? I believe you have less than those on the old system and I'm curious as by how many.

    Specials on dogs in Essex?

    Here's a tweet from an inspector on the dog section in Essex. It's an interesting idea and I have to say that I don't know how it would work! Thoughts?

    Welcome one and all.   Please feel free to start discussing matters relating to Essex Police.   Do remember of course everything in here is still publicly available and viewable, but you can investigate 'safe areas' where on payment of a fee a separate room can be bought and set up. Whilst still subject to Police Community expectations, rules and regulations, it will be hidden from public view and available only to affirmed Essex Police officers and staff.
