Update: 12 June 2024 - Op Pad-Pub Against Drugs

On Friday evening (7 June), we were joined by Police Dog Skye, her handler PC Steve Waters, Licencing Officer Nicola Henderson, and plain clothes officers to carry out a Pubs Against Drugs (PAD) operation in seven licenced premises across Saltash and Liskeard.

This was a proactive operation to deter members of the public from using, carrying, or supplying drugs on a night out, educating members of the public about the legal and personal consequences around carrying and using illegal drugs, and to support local licensed premises to reinforce the law. By carrying out operations like this, local drug networks become disrupted, and we can gather evidence to identify, investigate and prosecute offenders.

PD Skye successfully identified the presence of illegal drugs on multiple people. The evening of action resulted in…

Seven people stop searched, with three of those being positive searches.

Four items being seized, including suspected drug packages and alcohol being consumed by underage individuals.

Eight toilets out of the 14 tested using drug wipes were found to contain positive traces of drugs.

Update: 08 March 2024 - Positive warrant 6 March

On Wednesday 6th March, Saltash neighbourhood team assisted CID and the Proactive Disruption Team in conducting a Section 8 PACE 1984 Warrant, a warrant for indictable offences, whereby entry was forced to a property in order to affect a search. An arrest was made upon entry and search conducted where an amount of controlled drugs were located and investigations are ongoing.

We would like to thank the public for their patience and information that they have supplied the police in order to write and swear a warrant from the courts. The information you provide is recorded and is used in specific ways. We apologise for any inconvenience caused on the day, but we are trying to make your street safer.

Update: 11 December 2023 - Op Pad- Pubs against Drugs

???? OP PAD 3 - PUBS AGAINST DRUGS ????

 

Some of you may have seen us and around Liskeard, Saltash and Torpoint Pubs on the Friday 1st December 2023.

Please remember with Christmas on the horizon, there is no reason to use, carry or possess controlled drugs when there are other ways to celebrate the festivities. NOS canisters are now illegal to posses following law changes making them a Class C Controlled Drug. Don’t make a mistake which could lose your job, driving licence, family, home, and livelihood - is it worth it?

 

As part of the operation, the operation lead and the Police Licencing officer will speak to the Designated Premise Supervisor (DPS) and conduct checks of Licencing requirements and utilising Cocaine Testing Wipes on the surfaces within the toilets and cubicles.

#RUKIDDING

The Saltash Neighbourhood Team attended Brunel Primary as the first day of our month of a new road safety campaign #RUKIDDING. It is to promote road safety around schools and positive engagement with young children.

BRUNEL SCHOOL
07/06/2023 – A/PS LEWIS and PC LAVERS attended and spoke to the Foundation Children about the police; including what equipment is carried on their persons and why being safe on the road is important. The officers and children then went out to the police vehicle where they had an opportunity to see the equipment carried in the police vehicle and see the lights and sirens working before having a sit in!

The second half of the input was working with 7 year 6 students conducting education based Community Speed watch on Callington Road, Saltash. The children were keen to get involved using the speed detection devices, and where appropriate speaking to motorists about their speed when exceeding the 30mph limit stipulated.

The children made the following comments about this activity:

"The man in the Black Car was driving 33mph in a 30 speed limit, why doesn’t he slow-down"
"The lady in the white car was driving too fast near the school and the zebra crossing."
"Cars always speed on this road and always when I walk to school. I don’t think they are doing it now because it’s because we are here with the police."

#RUKIDDING

ST MELLION PRIMARY SCHOOL
08/06/2023 – A/PS LEWIS and PC LAVERS attended and spoke to the children ranging from Foundation to Year 3 about the police in general, what equipment is carried on their persons and why road safety is important. The children had opportunities to try on some of the equipment and had lots of questions about what the police do day to day and why police are safe people to speak to. The second half of the input was working with the only 2 year 6 students from the school. Due to the nature of the road layout, the speed gun was not utilised however we discussed safe pick up and drop off outside of the schools, utilising our parking warning notices for any vehicles that were parked not according to the road markings. Fortunately, all were parked safely and allowed safe collection from school. Officers discussed with the children about road safety, speeding cars and dangerous parking the following comments about this activity were made:

"The cars normally drive really fast outside of school, it’s not very safe"

"Cars drive really fast in the lanes around the school and near my house"

"Cars are sometimes parked dangerous outside of the school and our busses can’t get out"

#RUKIDDING

ST STEPHENS PRIMARY SCHOOL
13/06/2023 – A/PS LEWIS and PC LAVERS attended and spoke to the two classes from Foundation age group. The officers explained to the children why it is important for the police to help people, what we get up to day to day and what equipment is carried – with the opportunity for the children to hold and feel the items carried.

The second half of the input was working with the 6 year 6 students from the school. The students were shown the speed testing equipment and then made our way to St Stephens Road to use the equipment on road users approaching the mini roundabout outside of school. It was reassuring to see that all drivers were driving between 15-25mph well within the speed limit and no unsafe manoeuvres were conducted. Two motorists did park in inappropriate manner and were asked to move to make the road safe for children and end of school.

Whilst working with the students the following comments about this activity were made:

"It’s really busy in the mornings, normally when everyone is dropping off."

"The parking around here is okay but not good on the double yellows, that is not safe."

"If we weren’t here, I think they would drive much faster, but I think they can see the sign and us in yellow and it’s making them slow down."

"Usually, it’s really busy here but it is quiet as you are here."

#RUKIDDING

SIR ROBERT GEFFERY’s SCHOOL, LANDRAKE
26/06/2023 – Saltash Neighbourhood Team attended Sir Robert Geffery’s School as the fourth encounter of our month of the Road Safety campaign #RUKIDDING.

A/PS PC LEWIS, PC LAVERS and PC WHITELL attended and spoke to the class from Foundation age group. The officers explained to the children why it is important for the police to help people, what police officers carry in all their pockets giving the children the opportunity to hold and feel the items carried.

The second half of the input was working with the year 6 students from the school. The students were shown the speed testing equipment and the equipment that is carried in the vehicles. Of recent, there have been complaints about unsafe parking around the school and so we discussed safe pick up and drop off outside of the schools, utilising our parking warning notices for any vehicles that were parked not according to the road markings. Vehicles that were not parked safely were asked to move and those unattended, a polite notice was left.

Whilst working with the students the following comments about this activity were made:

"The orange car is double parked, and it makes it dangerous."

"The black car is parked on a single white line which is making it narrow for people and cars to pass."

"The police asked the silver car to move as it was on a speed bump. This parking doesn’t make it safe for the children crossing the road after school."

#RUKIDDING

ST GERMANS PRIMARY SCHOOL
27/06/2023 - A/PS LEWIS, PC LAVERS and PC WHITELL, attended and spoke to the Foundation Children about the police; including what equipment is carried on their persons, allowing them to try it on and why being safe on the road is important. After lots of questions, and what if scenarios, the officers, and children then went out to the police vehicle where they had an opportunity to see the equipment carried in not one, but two different police vehicles. The children had the chance to see the lighting and sirens working before having a sit in!

The second half of the input was working with year 6 students conducting education-based Community Speed watch on the road that runs through St Germans. The children were keen to get involved using the speed detection devices, based on Quay Road. Fortunately, some of the students’ parents that were seen were all driving safely, and no motorists were spoken to.

The children made the following comments about this engagement:

"There are a few cars that drive too fast through St Germans, I live here, and I see it sometimes and can be dangerous when it is wet"

"I like it at school when the parents park safely."

"The blue car was driving too fast, but it slowed down when it saw us."

"I think more children should walk to school who live in St Germans as it would make it safer around the school at the start and the end of the day. That means it would be safer by the houses by the school."

"The black car was going 33mph, it saw us and went down to 12mph which isn’t safe, especially by the school."

#RUKIDDING

 

Saltash Policing Team have really enjoyed working with the local schools that engaged in the project. It has been enjoyable providing knowledge and engagement with the young children, building public confidence and to allow the older students to assist in sending a message to the community.

Remember, If you look at the speedo in your car and its more that the speed limit, think to yourself... #RUKIDDING
