    SEARCH Assessment

    Since applying for the role of a Police Constable with Essex Police in March 2020, I've been checking emails every day for updates and to keep an eye out for any announcements regarding my application. I recently took part in the telephone briefing in preparation to attend the SEARCH Assessment on 8th April 2020. Following from the Governments announcements of lockdown and introductions of social distancing as a result of COVID-19, I was very disappointed, but understood the reasons, to find out that my SEARCH assessment day had been cancelled until further notice.

    Shortlisting & Briefing

    Today I received an update on my application to confirm that I had been successful at passing the shortlisting stage of my application. I was then invited to take part in a telephone briefing for the next stage of my application which would be the SEARCH Assessment day. I was very excited by this and felt that my application was moving at a good pace. The invite for the briefing was to take place on 2nd April 2020...so, I added it to my diary and started to conduct my own research into the SEARCH Assessment stage

    Application complete

    From as young as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a Police Officer. From watching almost every Police TV programme possible to watching Police Officers at work, it has always appealed to and been the dream career of mine. After previous discussions and failing to be successful, this evening I spoke with my partner again about my thoughts of applying to Essex Police... this evening, we agreed that it was the right time to make this change!

    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!
  7. Essex police car ends up on roof during chase in Wickham Bishops 9 hours ago From the sectionEssex Image copyrightTwitter Image captionEssex Police tweeted photos of the crash and appealed for information about the stolen car A police car has ended up on its roof in a field while it was chasing a car which was believed to have been stolen. Essex Police had a call about an Audi RS3 being driven erratically at Wickham Bishops near Witham on Friday evening. Shortly after the police car began its pursuit, the driver lost control, hit a telegraph pole and crashed into the field off Maldon Road. The two male officers inside the car had minor injuries. The Audi has yet to be located. Essex Police said the Audi was believed to have been stolen from Allectus Way in Witham on Friday evening. The squad car, which crashed at 18:45 GMT, contained a police constable in his 30s and a special constable in his late teens, Essex Police said. Special Inspector Jo van Zanten tweeted photographs of the crashed car and called it "a lucky escape for two Braintree officers". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35449820
  8. Shots were fired at unarmed police officers as they chased a man in an Essex town. No-one was injured and five men were later arrested after officers were called to the area of Arne Court and Vaughan Williams Road in Laindon. The alarm was raised shortly after 01:00 BST on Sunday when callers reported seeing a number of men with firearms. Three men were later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Two others were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rob. Police have appealed for anyone with information about the incident to come forward. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-34565469 Stumbled across this news story obviously not that noteworthy, but could have so easily been another tragedy.
  9. Essex Police are expected to announce today police station closures and cuts to PCSO numbers from 251 to 60. Brentwood Gazette: Full story
  10. A man has been shot by armed police in Essex following reports he was carrying two firearms. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-34126128 Essex Police said officers were called to Knights Way in Great Dunmow at about 22:00 BST on Tuesday. The man, who was left with leg injuries, is the first person to be shot by Essex officers in more than 30 years, the head of the force confirmed. A police spokesman said a 48-year-old man from Great Dunmow had been arrested in relation to firearms offences. The shooting has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh said it had been 31 years since Essex Police last shot someone. "My officers train incredibly well for this. We'll give this to the IPCC. It's right that when we do shoot someone, we get held to account," he said. He added officers did not believe the incident was connected to anything else, and people living in Great Dunmow "need to be reassured we've got it all under control". I hope all goes well for the officers involved 30 years is a long time not have tested your post incident procedures. No doubt some ill informed newspaper will be asking why these officers shot to wound, whilst others don't. But it's a little tricky to communicate with a subject and move positions without tripping over whilst looking through a scope. Shooting low is very common for a number of reasons subject moving as shot is fired, weapons being 'off aim' to allow better communication/vision and threat suddenly changing to name a few.
  11. A teenage joyrider who was filmed ramming a police motorcyclist into the path of a van has been jailed for six years amid claims he laughed as he sped away. Martin Galbraith, 18, hit speeds in excess of 120mph in a stolen BMW as he tried to evade PC Paul Hills, who was riding an unmarked police motorcycle. But as PC Hills attempted to pull him over onto a slip road, the brazen crook shunted the police motorcycle in a sickening bid to escape capture. Shocking CCTV footage played at Southend Crown Court showed the bike being launched into the path of a white Astra van off the A13 in Rainham, east London. East News Pursuit: PC Hills overtook Galbraith, who was speeding in a stolen BMW Galbraith fled the scene at speed but lost control on the next roundabout and was arrested after being found hiding just yards from the crash. Today, the unemployed teenager was jailed for six years after admitting attempted GBH and aggravated vehicle taking. Outside court, Inspector Scott Egerton, from Essex Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "PC Hills is lucky to be alive. "Galbraith clearly had no intention of stopping to answer questions about his speeding and not only rammed the back of the motorbike but also pushed it about 35 yards into the path of oncoming vehicles already on the roundabout. "We believe that Galbraith then tried a second time to drive at PC Hills as he was laying on the ground but he was saved from further injury because, luckily, another vehicle was in the way. "As Galbraith sped away from the scene witnesses saw him laughing - but that soon stopped when he lost control on the next roundabout and crashed into a wall. "This was clearly an appalling case of a criminal who was prepared to stop at nothing to avoid detection for having a stolen car." East News Dangerous: Galbraith hit speeds of more than 120mph in the stolen car Galbraith was spotted speeding at around 1.50pm on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, on the A13 near Grays, Essex. PC Hills attempted to flag the teenager down and switched on his blue lights before guiding him onto a slip road leading onto Ferry Road. But as the motorcycle began to brake for the roundabout, Galbraith accelerated and pushed the police bike 35 yards onto the roundabout where it collided with a white van. Carolyn Gardiner, prosecuting, delivered a shocking account from PC Hills of the moment he was rammed. She said: "It felt like someone had just pushed me from behind. "There was nothing I could do. "I saw the driver look directly at me and he appeared to be laughing." The court heard that PC Hills has since recovered fully from his injuries and has returned to work on his motorcycle. East News Collision: Galbraith (circled blue) rams the PC Hills (circled red) off his bike Judge John Lodge commended PC Hills, describing his actions as "brave and courageous". Addressing Galbraith during sentencing, Judge John Lodge said: "You purchased, for a small sum of money, what you knew to be a stolen vehicle. "You drove it in an incredibly dangerous manner. "Anyone who has watched CCTV will see someone driving as fast as the circumstances allow on one of the busiest roads in Essex. "You reached speeds in excess of 120mph." Ben Gordon, mitigating, said: "The CCTV, whilst not perfect, is relatively graphic and shows the shocking reality of this incident. "PC Hills' recovery and return to full duties on his motorcycle is something we are all grateful and relieved to hear. East News Sent down: Martin Galbraith was sentenced to six years "He understands a custodial sentence is inevitable. "There is one small, but fairly unpleasant, detail which is disputed by Mr Galbraith. "It is not accepted he was laughing while driving away from the scene. "There is nothing that Mr Galbraith finds funny about this situation." Galbraith, from Grays, was ordered to serve six years in a young offenders' institution and was disqualified from driving for five years during today's hearing.
