WE have become the first registered landlord in the county to sign an information-sharing agreement with Essex Police.
Signed by our Quality of Life (QoL) manager, Terri Cochrane, and Chief Inspector Glen Pavelin our Myriad House office in Chelmsford, the agreement allows us and Essex Police to share and verify sensitive information concerning crime and antisocial behaviour with each other.
The information-sharing agreement will help us to continue to manage our resident’s tenancies effectively and will also assist us in meeting our aim of creating sustainable communities throughout the county.
Terri Cochrane said: “We have always had a good relationship with Essex Police and have a long history in Chelmsford of working very closely with them.
“Expanding that relationship to other local authority areas, where officers can be less aware of our approach to managing tenancies - and our desire to impact positively on our communities - has presented some challenges.
“This agreement will make very clear to all what information can be shared and why. We are committed to tackling crime antisocial behaviour proactively and I am convinced this agreement will enable us to achieve our vision of making positive contributions to our communities.”
