Neighbourhood Priorities

Dangerous Drug Networks

Including County Lines, we will focus on associated violence and exploitation, working collaboratively with our partners and community to gather intelligence and act accordingly.  We will use the 'preparing for adulthood' scheme to ensure our young persons are aware, educated and safeguarded in relation to  the different types of exploitation they may encounter. 

Issue Date Tuesday 28th May 2024

Update: 14 June 2024 - Preparing for Adulthood

A great few days were had in May with Five Islands School Year 9's preparing them for adulthood.   Inputs were given to them on personal safety, risks of exploitation and the danger of County Lines including some useful operational practice.

Anti-Social Behaviour Night Time Economy and Coastal

It is a local priority to tackle ASB caused on land by night time economy but also on the water. 


In addition to pro-active Police patrols we are robustly engaging with Designated Premises Supervisors, Police Licensing Departments and Environmental Health to promote, maintain and where applicable enforce the safe and sensible consumption of alcohol.

Utilising Pub Watch and other schemes we are identifying the repeat problem individuals. Those individuals are then subject to banning / restriction orders as appropriate. 

We are working with partners to educate, encourage, explain issues of ASB raised whilst on the water and where necessary enforce this working in conjunction with #Coastsafe. 

We are working with Safer Scilly to educate our community with signposting agencies that can assist.

Update: 14 June 2024 - ASB on the Water

Last week we were joined by Border Force to carry out a joint operation with regards to Immigration and Maritime crime along with looking at any issues with regards to ASB on the water.   High visibility patrols were carried out in a RHIB and 2 x Jet Skis to allow for a large proportion of the Islands to be covered.  

A very successful operation.

Neighbourhood Events

Come and Meet Us
Thursday 1st August 2024
from 12:00PM to 12:30PM

The Isles of Scilly is so unique, we are 'out and about' as much as possible and therefore don't tend to have many public meetings.  Everyone knows us and where we will be. 

During the Summer Season you will regularly see us on St Mary's Quay (March - November) welcoming the Scillonian III on her arrival usually about 12 pm.    If we are not there we will be walking around the main streets or off to one of the other islands.   Please come and say 'Hi'. 

We will also be at Five Islands Academy near to the entrance between 8.15am and 9am when commitments allow.
