Crime Prevention Advice
Guess whose house is going to be empty for two weeks?
Bragging you’re heading off to the sun on social media? You could be giving burglars information about when your house is empty. Check your privacy settings and make sure you only have people you know on your social media accounts.
For more advice visit the crime prevention pages on our website.
Be Fraud Smart
Sadly fraudsters are continuing to targeting people by social media platforms such as WhatsApp, messaging from an unfamiliar number.
Claiming to be a family member who has a new phone number because their phone has been damaged or lost. The victim is then asked for money.
If you get an unexpected message like this take steps to protect yourself by calling your family member on the old phone number you have for them, and not the new number, in case this is a fraudster.
If you know someone who use’s messaging apps sometimes but might not be aware of the scam, please speak to them and make aware of what to do.
You can forward the scam message onto ActionFraud by sending it to 7726.
Visit our website for more advice on protecting yourself against fraud, or for information on what to do if you think you have been a victim of fraud .

This week we remember
Stephen ‘Steve’ Taylor served with Essex Police from 30 July 1979. He began his service at Tilbury, where his interest in diving fostered a desire to qualify as a police diver. After transferring to the Force Support Unit in August 1983 he achieved that ambition, and also became a firearms officer. While diving into the wreck of an old barge Steve Taylor and Andy Morrison got into severe difficulties which led to their deaths. Steve Taylor died at the scene on 1 June 1989.
Andrew ‘Andy’ Morrison served with Essex Police from 2 February 1976. He was first stationed at Billericay then worked at Rowhedge and Colchester before transferring to the Force Support Unit in April 1982. He became a police diver in October 1983 and a diving supervisor in May 1986. On 1 June 1989 the divers were following a routine training exercise in some gravel pits close to Dobbs Weir near Nazeing. Andy Morrison and Steve Taylor got into difficulties while attempting to attach a hawser to a sunken barge. Steve Taylor died at the scene and Andy Morrison the following day in hospital.
Charles Norwood served with Essex County Constabulary from 1 Feb 1911. On 31 May 1915 Charles volunteered for military service at Shoeburyness Garrison, enlisting with 245th Siege Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery serving as Sergeant 122436. He suffered the effects of a gas attack and died on 4 June 1917 from the injuries that he had received.
