As a neighbourhood team, we understand that the local community and visitors to the area want to feel safe. We are actively engaging and making appropriate interventions to reduce Anti Social Behaviour in Totnes and our surrounding parishes. 

We will be taking a zero tolerance attitude towards offences relating to violence and weapons.

Alcohol and Drug related Anti-Social Behaviour

Summertime is well and truly on the way (even if the weather isn't playing ball). This means one thing - event season! Events taking place in around Dartmouth start to build now as the weather gets better and people head to the area. As a result of some of these activities, we see an increase in mainly alcohol related anti-social behaviour. The Dartmouth Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out proactive patrols at these events to prevent incidents happening and to take relevant enforcement actions where they do! We would like to encourage people to drink responsibly and enjoy your days!
