Strategic Principles from all three Essex Emergency Services

Essex Police Strategic Principles

  • Promoting an integrated offer through the concept of a shared, environmentally sustainable co-located community estate (including Police, Fire, healthcare, voluntary sector and other key public services where appropriate, efficient and effective) that shares facilities in appropriate locations within the community, creating a more local, visible and accessible policing. 
  • To work with planners and developers to ensure that new developments in Essex provide a mix of well-designed homes, open spaces and promote neighbourhoods that consider community safety and wellbeing that provide benefit to all communities.
  • Ensuring ‘Secured by Design’ standards are incorporated and fully exhausted throughout new development (including associated buildings) as a minimum whilst maximising opportunities against current and future technological and crime pattern changes linked to digital/cyber offences.
  • That the prevention of crime and Disorder is supported through well-designed places that includes the provision of a sense of community and safety.
  • Encouragement of proactive Police service-related communication to new residents and communities that promote public confidence and cohesion.
  • Incorporating provision of affordable housing for Police service staff through a ‘homes for all’ approach.
  • Ensuring that all work, education and public spaces are sufficiently well designed to promote safe, secure communities and environments.
  • To be engaged with master-planning for any transport related developments, collaboratively working with the relevant authorities to ensure that new developments are planned and designed to improve safety on the various networks. This will include preventing KSI (those Killed or Seriously Injured) Road Traffic Collisions where possible. 
  • To include infrastructure considerations to ensure and develop an efficient policing response in the future. This may include such matters as Vehicle Charging points.
