Essex Police Joins Forces with Essex 2020

Essex Police drones team

As part of Essex 2020’s celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM), Essex Police will be showcasing the abilities of their many teams in a series of specially produced videos.

The police are vital as a first-response emergency service but have you ever thought about the wealth of work that goes on behind the scenes? There are many roles and activities that encompass all elements of STEAM. For example; forensic science, drone technology, databases, artist impressions, audio/video enhancement and cyber security to name just a few. Not to mention the design and maintenance of a myriad of mechanical and electronic devices used to solve policing problems and fight crime.

Here at Essex Police, we are constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to help people, keep them safe and to catch criminals.
We have seen many changes over the decades with some really fantastic capabilities but one thing has remained strong over our 180 year history – our commitment to protecting and serving all communities.

Videos will be released weekly. The first video features Essex Police’s drones team and the vital role specialist equipment plays in many varying scenarios.
