Following a £1.1m further investment in Essex Police for visible policing, Giles Watling MP is pleased to hear that antisocial behaviour in Tending District has declined 41% in the last 12 months.
In a statement, Mr Watling said:
"I am pleased to see that antisocial behaviour across Tendring has declined 41% over the last 12 months, and I am sure that following recent investment this figure will come down even further. Residents deserve to feel safe on the streets and I know that police patrols and outreach will go a long way to helping secure this – we’ll reclaim them from the people who would seek to intimidate us out of public spaces!"
The investment followed Mr Watling contact Essex Police Fire and Crime Commissioner Roger Hirst after reports appeared in the media about an increased concern about antisocial behaviour in the Clacton Constituency. The £1.1m figure is being rolled out to improve visible policing, patrols, community outreach and more to prevent antisocial behaviour and take back public spaces for residents.
