TENDRING Community Policing Teams have been conducting joint foot and mobile patrols across the district this week.

They are patrolling with councillors, partner agencies including Tendring Council’s antisocial behaviour officers as well as community ambassadors around Tendring.

Their efforts have included officers recovering a stolen moped which had been abandoned in an alleyway in Wyndham Crescent, Clacton.

Officers in Harwich were joined by councillors Steve Richardson and John Wade.

During their patrols, they visited retailers to speak about the responsible retailer initiative.

Meanwhile, Clacton officers have conducted joint patrols in Jaywick and Clacton with Tendring Council ambassadors, as well as staff from charity UTurn, who offer support and practical help for young people aged ten to 18 years old.

“Joint patrols with partner agencies will be continuing over the next few days in  Clacton, Jaywick, Holland-on-Sea, Brightlingsea, Manningtree, Frinton and Walton."
