While we are one of the lowest crime rate areas in the country but I am not complacent.
One of the issues of concern our community has is anti-social behaviour.
Anti-social behaviour can blight communities on a daily basis and affect our quality of life.
Our summer challenges have been even harder this year with Covid19 and why I introduced the Summer Safety Scheme with street marshals to help prevent alcohol anti-social behaviour in 20 of our beauty spots. I did not want law abiding families avoiding our area because of fear of poor behaviour by some of our community.
I have also funded £300,000 worth of CCTV improving 250 cameras across our area from St Ives to Torbay.
I will continue to focus on this issue with more help to local areas to reduce anti-social behaviour.
