The district of Tendring is one of the safest places to live in the UK.
Essex has one of the lowest crime rates in England. Home Office figures show that only four police forces, of the 40 in England, had a lower crime rate. Within the county, Tendring Police stands out as a beacon of success.
Although the figures are good the Tendring Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is still striving to combat crime. The partnership includes Tendring District Council, Essex Police, Essex County Council, Police and Crime Commissioner's Office, Essex Fire Authority, Essex Community Rehabilitation Company, North East Essex NHS and Community Voluntary Services Tendring and have identified the following four priorities to improve community safety:
- Reduce anti-social behaviour
- Protecting vulnerable people
- Reducing drug and alcohol misuse
- Reducing offending and reoffending
