Neighbourhood Inspector (Southend/Shoebury) Bill Potter

I joined the police in 1986; I served with Thames Valley Police for 12 years before joining Essex Police in 1998. I was initially posted to Rochford but in 2001 I was promoted and transferred to Shoebury. In 2003 I moved to Southend and in July 2009 I became responsible for the town centre and seafront Neighbourhood Policing Team. I was promoted to Inspector on 1st March 2012 and have been very fortunate to retain a Neighbourhood Policing post in Southend. During my years in the police service I have undertaken a great variety of work but nothing gives me more pleasure than engaging with the community. I look forward every day to meeting members of the Public and working with others to make Southend a genuinely safer environment to live and visit.
On the 01/10/2014 Essex Police introduced Community Safety Hubs across the force; as the new Local Policing Partnership Inspector, I now have responsibility for Neighbourhood Policing and Community Safety across the Southend district. The Neighbourhood Policing Team consists of a number of specialist Constables and dedicated PCSO’s working across Shoebury, Leigh and central Southend. In addition to the Neighbourhood Team, there are a number of colleagues supporting the reduction of crime and disorder including partnership initiatives linked to anti-social behaviour, licensing, schools and a variety of other community safety functions.

I am also the licensing Sgt and work closely with Southend Borough Council and the licensing trade to ensure Southend is a safe place to visit and enjoy all that it has to offer.

Neighbourhood Constable Jon Martin

I have been a Police Officer based in Southend since joining the force in 2003. I am your Neighbourhood constable and first point of contact for Victoria Ward. I am very passionate about Neighbourhood Policing, and feel privileged that I have the opportunity to make some real differences within the community. I am keen to work closely with residents and agencies and work together to address concerns and problems, to ultimately make the community a safer place to live
