Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing welcomes police funding boost - but says more officers are still needed
Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing has welcomed the announcement that funding for Essex Police will increase by £23m next year - an 8.3 per cent rise.

Dame Eleanor has also welcomed the Home Office’s commitment to fighting serious and organised crime, including economic crime and drug trafficking, with a £90m investment in national, regional and local capabilities.

Additionally, the settlement will again see £175m going into the Police Transformation Fund, which includes investment for innovative new crime prevention techniques and a new national welfare service for front-line officers, and £495m for national police technology capabilities.

Dame Eleanor said: "The Government have listened to our concerns. We need additional police officers in Essex - and now we will get them.

"The Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Roger Hirst has done very well in using his budget carefully and increasing the number of officers by 150 this year - but we still need more."

She added: "I am delighted that Essex Police's funding could increase by up to £23m next year."
