Maldon district: Concern over attitude of police control room staff

First published in Local News

Concerns have been raised about the “hostile” police response to victims of crime in the Maldon district.

Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators have complained about the response when reporting incidents using the Essex Police non-emergency number.

Great Totham watch co-ordinator Linda Priestley said: “Every time I have reported something, the control room has been quite hostile.

“I can understand they’re under pressure, but I do resent the feeling that I’m wasting their time.” 

An Essex Police spokesman said he was unable to comment on the complaints without the time and date of calls in question.
