Devon & Cornwall Alert

Your neighbourhood officers know how important it is to engage with their communities. Devon and Cornwall Alert is a two way community messaging system operated by Devon and Cornwall Police. The system helps us to connect with our communities, it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information.

The system is designed to allow people who register to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.

Subscribers will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in their community. The aim is to send relevant information where we believe to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or will help Devon and Cornwall Police solve a crime.

Anti Social Behaviour

We work closely with our partners to tackle ASB and these include Plymouth City Council, Livewell, Registered Social Landlords, SWASFT and DSFRS.

We have a dedicated Community Connections Officer (PCC) embedded within the team who assist us with taking positive action regarding all aspects of anti social behaviour. This includes processing through the ASB escalation process through serving of a Community Behaviour Order and even eviction. 

A dedicated member of Child Centred Policing works closely with our team to fast track all aspects of Youth related issues. 

We have close working relationships with our elected councillors and community leaders and seek to work together to address community related issues identified. 

We are currently targeting the use of illegal electric motorcycles on footpaths and open public spaces. These are not to be confused with electrically assisted pedal cycles, which are legal and can be ridden on the roads.

Update: 21 June 2024 - Electric Bicycles

Plymouth LPP officers have been actively targeting illegal electric motorcycles. One such machine was seized from an individual in the West Park area and the rider reported for offences.

Protect the Vulnerable

We work closely with our partners to safeguard the most vulnerable in our communities. Our partners include Plymouth City Council, Registered Social Landlords, Livewell, GP practices, SWAST and DSFRS .

Particular focus is on persons at risk of 'cuckooing' i.e. those at risk of being exploited by dangerous drug networks. We also work closely with our partners to support victims of domestic violence conducting regular visits following the issue of Domestic Violence Protection Orders issued by a court.

Visibility & Engagement within our community

Our team seek to provide a regular visible presence, provide reassurance and support for our communities. We achieve this in many ways which include conducting regular foot patrols, community meetings, community messaging and posting appropriate community updates on our social media pages. 

The key to building trust is having regular conversations - please feel fee to engage with our officers if you see them on patrol. They will be happy to help in whatever way they can. We will continue to endeavour to understand what issues are important to you, tackle them and publicise what has been achieved. Please consider signing up to one of our Facebook Groups: Plymouth North Police or Plympton Police to remain informed.
