Essex Police are inviting horse riders across Essex to a special event, focusing on how they can help to be an extra set of eyes and ears and report any suspicious behaviour to the police.

The Active Citizen on Horseback scheme officially launches at Essex Police Headquarters, Chelmsford, on Wednesday 15 September.

The new scheme seeks volunteers from rural communities across Essex to provide a visible presence whilst out and about on their routes with their horses.

Volunteers can then keep an eye out for any problems in these areas, reporting any suspicious activity to Essex Police on 101.

The new scheme will be launched primarily for the north of the county, concentrating on Braintree, Colchester, Chelmsford, Maldon, Tendring and Uttlesford districts, with a view to launch this in other areas in the county based on its success.

The event, which will take place at the Sports Pavilion on the Headquarters grounds, will give potential volunteers an introduction to the initiative, as well as meeting the staff and officers behind this.

Doors will open at 6.30pm on the evening, ready for a 7pm start.

If you wish to book a place at the launch event, please RSVP to Sgt Cathy Calder at cathy.calder@essex.pnn.police.uk.

Boxted St Peter’s primary school starts the Autumn term this week.
