Leigh Times article on policing 11 April 2019 ()"Lib Dem councillor Carole Mulroney said "Whichever way the Police, Crime and Fire Commissioner dress this up, there has been a reduction of immense proportions in the police numbers in Essex. In Southend we have seen the worst of this and as a consequence we now have citizens in all areas worried about the potential for knife crime, concerned about increases in burglaries and thefts and scared of anti-social behaviour - on top of the hate crime, drugs issues and cybercrime. The need is desperate in all our areas."
