Are you fed up with noisy, nuisance vehicles causing you sleepless nights? Racing up and down your streets, putting you and others at risk?
Essex Police receive daily complaints of this activity in your district, with spring around the corner there will be an increase in this anti social behaviour, however your local community policing team are committed to addressing this blight on our community.
If you witness ASB involving vehicles, please contact Essex Police and report it. Unless you tell us, we will not know.
Time, date, place, make and model of the offending vehicles would help us to address offending behaviour by utilising Police powers under the ROAD TRAFFIC ACT 1988 and ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR, CRIME AND POLICING ACT 2014. If you have dash cam or CCTV footage that clearly shows the offenders committing road traffic offences then this is excellent evidence which we can use in court should you be willing to provide a statement.
You can contact Essex Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or report online www.essex.police.uk/doitonline. These are monitored 24/7. Alternatively you can contact your local Community Policing Team via the following methods:

Launch of Rochford Dementia Action Alliance
Rochford Dementia Action Alliance was launched on 20th January 2017 in order to help the community learn how to help all those living with the condition. It is estimated that 2,629 people in the Rochford District and Castle Point are living with Dementia, but only 1,539 of these have a recorded diagnosis (as of November 2016).
The Rochford Dementia Action Alliance (with support from Rochford District Council) will be sharing information about how to spot the early warning signs, as well as how to become a ‘Dementia Friend.” They will be encouraging people to think of how to “Do something Different” to help those living with dementia.
Different types of dementia affect the brain at different rates and in different ways, but other things like someone's personal circumstances, the people around them and the environment in which they live, will affect their experience of dementia. Dementia progresses in a way that is unique to each individual. It is true that more people over 65 have Dementia but it is not exclusively an older person's disease; younger people get Dementia too.
Five things you need to know about dementia:
• Dementia is not a natural part of the ageing process.
• Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain.
• It is not just about losing your memory.
• It's possible to live well with it.
• There is more to the person than the dementia.
