The local Member of Parliament, Priti Patel, welcomes the progress of Essex Police’s investigations toward the recent crimes in the Constituency. Priti says:
“I have continuously been firm in my view that the callous individuals threatening our property, our families and our communities, should be pursued and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and I recently held discussions with Chief Inspector Craig Carrington, the District Commander for the Braintree area, for an update on Essex Police’s investigations into the criminal activity throughout the Constituency.
Chief Inspector Carrington has outlined the measures which the Force has been implementing in their pursuit of the criminals within the community and I have been assured that in light of the substantial progress they have so far made, they will shortly be achieving the successful arrest and imprisonment of the unrepentant criminals.
It is a testament to the professionalism of Essex Police that they have crucially prioritised resources toward effectively removing these criminals from our streets and communities and I anticipate their success in securing these convicting shortly. I continue to call on anyone who has witnessed or been affected by criminal activity to report any information to the Police, only by working closely with the Police and giving them vital information, we can truly take steps to eradicate crime from our streets. I will continue to liaise with the local policing teams on their ongoing investigations and will be further updating my constituents to these developments over the coming weeks.”
