Anti-crime blitz coming to Tendring from Essex Police
Police officers will be flooding the streets of Clacton, Frinton, Harwich and Manningtree next week in a blitz on crime.
The week-long operation, beginning on Monday, February 6, is being carried out in response to concerns from residents in Tendring.
Serious crime, such as drugs gangs, will be tackled with raids, while additional high-visibility patrols will also be carried out.
Town centres will be targeted in the evenings to promote safety in the night-time economy, while partner agencies will also look to address anti-social behaviour.
Other organisations involved include Trading Standards, who will carry out knife and alcohol test sales to make sure retailers are not breaking the law.
Chief Inspector Russ Cole, district commander for Tendring, said: “This week of focused activity marks an intensified effort of the work we do every day.“
