Join us at the iconic Town Hall for our Colchester Networking Breakfast and hear from Deputy Chief Constable Pippa Mills.
Over the past year Essex Chambers’ have been developing a close working relationship with Essex Police focusing on issues related to crimes against businesses in the county. We have created a Strategic Business Crime Board with a membership drawn from business, the Police and the Police Fire and Crime Commissioner’s team.
The Board has looked at ways to collaboratively tackle cyber-crime, modern day slavery, terrorism and other issues as well as helping the police set up a dedicated Business Crime Unit at Force Headquarters. Together we have co-authored and launched a Business Crime Strategy and are leading the way in joint working.
This initiative has been recognised nationally. To tell you more about this and other initiatives Pippa Mills, the Deputy Chief Constable of Essex Police, will be joining us.
