Essex Police issues a ‘Partnership Document’ detailing crimes in the county. These are routinely copied to the Parish Council, whether or not there are any reported incidents in the parish.
We have been asked to copy these reports to the website and will be adding them to this page in future, so that residents are both aware of reported crimes and alert to ways in which they can make property secure.
It should be noted that Uttlesford is a safe place to live. It has the 4th lowest crime rate in Essex at 3.4 offences per 1,000 population (Home Office, 2013/14). The rate of recorded offences has been steadily falling since 2003-04. Across the whole district rates are extremely low with vast majority of crimes relating to criminal damage, non-dwelling burglaries, and thefts from motor vehicles.
You can also sign up for Essex Community Messaging to receive alerts regarding policing and community safety issues which affect you.
