Essex Police, founded in 1840, is the police force for the ceremonial county of Essex, covering the county council area plus the unitary authorities of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock. Its headquarters is in Chelmsford. In 1969 it absorbed Southend-on-Sea Borough Police. In April 2000, it took over parts of the county in the south-west (Loughton, Waltham Abbey, Chigwell and Buckhurst Hill) which had up to then been within the Metropolitan Police Area.
