The Thurrock Community Safety Partnership was in Chafford Hundred to offer information and seek the views of residents around crime.
Commuters at the station were given the opportunity to give their thoughts on how the police and Thurrock Council deal with incidents of Anti-social Behaviour. Representatives from the partnership also asked residents about graffiti and fly tipping in the area.
After the rush hour, Thursday’s event moved to Sainsbury’s in Chafford Hundred where shoppers were offered valuable help and advice from Thurrock Trading Standards around consumer rights, Essex Fire and Rescue on fire safety in the home and the work that Thurrock Council does in case of a borough-wide emergency. Crime Prevention and personal safety advice will also be available.
Thurrock Council Portfolio Holder for Crime and Disorder, Councillor Gerard Rice, said: “Meeting different sections of our communities, from commuters through to shoppers, is key to explaining the work we do and the help and advice available. It also means residents have the chance to give us their views face to face.”
