Supporting Communities

I help to keep our country safe, protect our values and preserve our way of life. I work with the Police, Councillors & businesses to tackle crime head on and support local initiatives. I helped secure additional Police funding of up to £8.8 million for 2018/19 resulting in 150 new officers for Essex Police and a further £23 million for 2019/2020 resulting in another 125 new officers. I am also pushing for tougher legislation to tackle illegal traveller encampments such as the 'Irish Option' of criminalising deliberate acts of trespass to strengthen the hand of the Police.
