Neighbourhood Priorities

Drug use and supply

We aim to gather and act on intelligence received in all areas of the Policing sector surrounding drug use and supply. 

This involves executing Misuse of Drugs Act warrants, disruption work and also liaising with partner agencies in order to combat local drug dealing as well as County Lines. 

Often, drug use comes with additional Safeguarding concerns both for the drug user and any immediate family they may have. This is especially true in County Lines cases where young and vulnerable people are often exploited. 

St Austell Neighbourhood team is committed to tackling this issue and ensuring vulnerable people are Safeguarded and that the offenders are brought to justice.

We have conducted 3 separate search warrants and removed drugs and weapons from residential addresses. Officers have been conducting high-vis patrols within populated areas and conducted a number of positive stop searches for persons who have been carrying drugs. 

We can only do this work with the information from the community, please continue to contact us with any information you have about drug related crimes so we can take action where possible. 

Update: 05 June 2024 - June 2024

St Austell Police are still working hard in this area but we need your help. Without information from yourselves within the community we are not able to take action with persons suspected of dealing drugs. We need the information you hold in order to apply to the courts for Search Warrants. The threshold of information we need to do this is high, so please if you have any information about possible drug dealing tell us. You can tell any Police Officer you see, contact us via our website, pop into the Station or report it via Crime Stoppers. 

At this time we do have warrants planned on addresses suspected to be linked to drug dealing. We will share updates and information about any results when we can. 

Thank you for your support in advance.
