Chair of Thurrock Independents joins call for Tilbury police station to be re-opened

THE chair of the Thurrock Independents has joined the chorus of calls for Tilbury police station to be re-opened.
Thurrock Independents Chairman Allen Mayes said: “Crime In Thurrock is on the rise despite the raise in the Police fund section of our council tax this year. We were promised an additional 150 police officers in Essex and yet there doesn’t appear to be any more of a police presence than last year.
“Crime is rising and people genuinely do not feel safe any more in their town.
“In Tilbury this week, we had a shooting and the police reaction is to setup a mobile police station whilst an actual police station sits idle. The police station in Tilbury should be reopened as it should never have been allowed to close in the first place.
However opening up a police station on its own does nothing, we need more officers to be visible making residents feel safe. I call on the police and crime commissioner to detail his specific plans for Thurrock as crime is spiralling in our borough”

  1. We need to open up this police station and install an electric chair so we can start to rid our streets of scum.

  2. We need to do Economic
    Neoliberalism.

    We need to cut Thurrock police budget by 99% and give the money to Amazon so they can keep more of there hard earned money.
    The police need to live within there means. I am sure we can cut the police budget even further than 99% as there are more efficiency savings from paper clips and such.

    I’ve made my point.
