Non-Emergency police call 101. Emergency 999

 

Before the crime reports please read through below information

 

Cold callers

We have been made aware that persons are receiving calls by phone and the caller is offering to carry out visits of property offering crime reduction. It is believed that this is a tactic which will give the caller the opportunity to sell you a house alarm. If you receive such a call simply tell them that you are not interested. Often these companies will say that they work in conjunction with Essex Police.

 

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ESSEX POLICE DO NOT WORK INCONJUCTION WITH ANY ALARM COMPANIES

 

Essex Police have their own Crime Reduction Officer who will happily give advice free of charge. If this is of interest to you please contact Stephen Armson-Smith Tel 101 extension 400152

We have also been informed of another cold caller who claims that you are owed money in relation to a PPI. The caller will claim that a representative of the company will call upon you with a cheque for 5,000 pounds and all you need to do is provide identification and give them 99 pounds towards costs. Best not to get involved.
