About

Tackling crime and keeping you and your community safe is a top priority across Essex and we believe that by improving the flow of information between the community and the Police can all make a greater impact in the prevention and detection of crime and anti-social behaviour.

Essex Community Messaging is an efficient and effective communication system designed to keep the residents of Essex informed about the latest crime notifications and crime prevention advice for their communities. The messages can be tailored to individual preferences for both the type of messages you receive and the means of communication, directed through a preferred channel of phone, email or text message.

Essex Community Messaging also allows you to register multiple locations and interests, not just a home address. This is ideal for those who want to know more about where their children go to school, family members who live elsewhere, places to socialise and around place of work.

Registering is free, simple and easy - follow the step by step instructions by pressing "Join" and once you have verified your account, you will be ready to receive messages based on your preferences and locations. Please feel assured that your details will not be passed on to any third party organisations and you can unsubscribe at any time.
