This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

SHoKE Safer Streets - join a regional project to improve the safety of women and girls.

Are you concerned about women and girls' safety?

Act now to help improve the safety of women and girls by sharing your ideas with Essex Police.

Join a regional project to create Safer Streets led by Essex Police and Essex County Council. The police need your ideas and help to create Safer Streets. Submit your ideas now!

Real change needs to happen, that’s why we’re asking passionate students to put forward creative ideas. Watch the launch recording to find out more on what the police are looking for.

Essex police will view all ideas and then they will select some. After Christmas student teams will look at developing the ideas and work collaboratively with the police for implementation. If your idea is selected, you will be notified and offered this opportunity.
