There is an extensive array of CCTV cameras as well as my officers, private security patrols, drug sniffer dogs and a range of other undercover activity all designed to catch you. Festival-goers are urged to keep themselves and their property safe by following the crime prevention advice promoted by Seymour on the Essex Police website and Twitter account.”
