About Us

The Harwich and District Community Crime Prevention Panel was formed in September 2017, formerly known as Harwich and District Crime Prevention Panel, and aims to identify crime related problems, to establish ways of tackling these and to undertake projects, within the community, designed to assist in solving problems.

Areas of Operation

The panel operates in Harwich and District area. This includes: Harwich, Dovercourt, Parkeston, Mistley, Wrabness, Manningtree, Great Bromley and Ardleigh.


The panel is made up of local residents from the community with a wide range of backgrounds and who give their time freely to help people stay safe from crime and anti-social behaviour. 

We work closely with a variety of organisations including Age Concern, British Transport Police, Essex County Council, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, Essex Police, Harwich Town Council, Neighbourhood Watch, Tendring Community Safety Partnership and Tendring District Council.

These organizations provide technical advice, statistics and general support in helping you prevent crime and reduce anti-social behaviour where you live. New members, whether individuals who want to make a difference to their lives and community, organisations, whether local or national who want to help people stay safe are welcome.

If you want to join in either pop along to one of our meetings or contact us.
