What happened at our annual conference

Roger Hirst addressing delegates at the conference

Partnership working is having an impact on gangs and violent crime in Essex

Speaking at his recent annual conference (Friday, June 7), the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, Roger Hirst, told emergency service personnel, MPs and representatives from local authorities, town and parish councils, health, education, voluntary, the business sector and community organisations that by working together on intervention programmes, they are making a difference.

He said: “We are making a difference. We know that when we intervene, it makes a difference. We know that when we work together, it makes a difference.

“Violent crime in this county is much less than across the country. But, we need to get it down further and I know by working together we can do that. It is only by working together we can make that progress.

“We do so much well together already. Today is an opportunity for everyone to see what everyone else is doing around community safety in our county. Hopefully they will leave thinking ‘we can work together and make this happen’.”

Under the hashtag #UnstoppableEssex, the ‘Delivering through Partnerships event’, at Colchester Stadium, shone the spotlight on that partnership work making communities safer.

The event was supported by Essex Chambers of Commerce.
