Have your say about crime and community safety in Tilbury

THE next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and community safety issues, will take place in Tilbury on Wednesday April 2, 2014.

The public briefing document containing information about the policing model in Thurrock, the latest reported crime figures for the area and significant context concerning crime trends can be accessed at the PCC website link below, and will also be available at the public meeting.


Nick Alston said: “We’ve had an excellent series of public meetings in all parts of Essex over the last fifteen months, and we’re looking to build on those events. I encourage everyone who lives in Thurrock to come along to our next event and raise the issues that matter to them.

“We provide the very latest crime figures at the meetings, publishing these on our website too. We explore the facts and context around any crime trends, with briefings from the local Essex Police District Commander, Chief Inspector Ben Hodder, and Lucy Magill, Chair of the Community Safety Partnership. Everyone attending the meeting can put their questions directly to the police, the community safety team, and to me. I will also ask challenging questions of the police and council, as well as highlighting some of the excellent work that is taking place.

“If you care about keeping your community as safe as it can possibly be, please come along and get involved.”

The next event is scheduled for:


Time: 19:00 to 21:00, Wednesday April 2, 2014

Location: The Gateway Academy, Marshfoot Road, Tilbury RM16 4LU

Nick Alston adds: “Each meeting will be two hours long. We’d love people to attend all the meeting, but if you can only make part of it, please still come along. I want your views to be part of the debate about how we can best keep the streets and countryside of Essex safe.”


  1. The crime rate is too high, not enough is being done to combat all forms of hate crime and no one is doing anything about the residents of my building who smoke and deal drugs in the public common areas. That’s my say, Mr PCC. What are you going to do about it apart from sit at your desk raking in a huge wage for doing nothing?
