"The local neighbourhood policing team are readying themselves for the TUNES IN THE DUNES FESTIVAL on PERRANPORTH beach 17-19th MAY 2024. Additional police resources are drafted into the area to provide a high visibility presence and offer reassurance to the local community during the weekend family orientated music event. This includes dedicated members of the Special Constabulary for whom we are extremely grateful for their support and road traffic policing units who will patrol the local area targeting driving offences. Previous years have shown very low crime records linked to this event. The police work in conjunction with the event organisers and site security to ensure the safety of festival attendees and to minimise the impact of such a large scale event on the local community. Police officers will be out and about on foot well into the early hours of the morning on all three evenings, engaging with the visitors and looking to deter and prevent any anti -social behaviour or criminal activity."

Premises Closure

On the 31st August, Truro Anti Social behaviour Officer along with Truro, Perranporth and Tregony Police, LiveWest housing officers have made an application to close a property for a period of three months within the Truro area.

This property has been the source of anti-social behaviour for over 4 years and the local community have been subject to living in fear for their safety.

The resident has been engaged with by various partners to rectify the situation and bring peace to the neighbourhood but sadly the individual concerned was unwilling to engage.

The decision to close the property was not made lightly but magistrates have seen fit to close the property to all occupiers.

Safer Cornwall partnership hope this will restore peace to the area and other residents respite whilst encouraging the resident to address their behaviours.

Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter

We are approaching the summer which can be one of our busiest times.  The nicer weather and increase in visitors can impact on the level of our demands.  Hopefully people will continue to see more officers ‘out and about’ on the streets; that’s one of my priorities for the policing sector.  As some may know we received additional funding for proactive patrols through the Safer Streets Funding programme.  That’s enabled us to put officers out on patrol with the aim to improve on our visibility, reduce ASB and associated crimes and in turn reassure the public so they feel safe.  We’ve another pot of additional funding coming for the summer.  Our intention is to spend that on more foot patrols in our open spaces, such as beaches, parks and gardens.  Truro is in a fairly healthy position in respect of staffing levels when considering the workforce design.  Our patrol teams are at a reasonable level and we will continue to welcome new officers into the sector, partly as a result of the general uplift.  I’d encourage people to continue to look after each other and report any concerns to the police, or other agency if another is more appropriate.  We have a new website, which is a good way to contact us, including to report concerns as well as dropping us a line of thanks!
