Beware of pick pockets
Ensure purses and wallets are placed securely into handbags which are done up
Essex Police are receiving calls regarding theft of purses and wallets especially when at busy supermarkets. When out shopping please be aware of the people around you. Make sure that all purses and wallets are placed securely into handbags, and that they are done up. Pick pockets operate a very well rehearsed system of getting these items from people. Be aware of being bumped into, persons obstructing your passage. Take care at self service tills. Take a little extra time to not become a victim of crime.
Essex Police can be contacted on 101 non-emergency, 999 in an emergency
