Welcome to the monthly update for the Cornwall Council ASB Team. Below you will find some snippets of the work that the team has done in through June and July to detect and prevent Anti Social Behaviour in Cornwall’s communities.
Cornwall Council’s ASB Team working closely with local police officers, have successfully obtained the following orders at West Cornwall Magistrates Court.
Anti Social Behaviour Order and Drink Banning Order on Nuisance Caller in Penryn
The Anti Social Behaviour Team along with Devon and Cornwall Police and Crown Prosecution Service successfully gained a Drink Banning Order and an ASBO on the back of criminal conviction on a Female living in Penryn. The female since moving to Penryn was responsible for not only causing a heavy strain on Emergency Services in the locality, but also causing nuisance, annoyance and distress to neighbours.
Drink Banning Orders Obtained in June and July
A total of 8 Drink Banning Orders were obtained in the last two months.
What Will Your Drink Cost
The Anti Social Behaviour Team is involved in a series of patrols and meet and greats with Devon and Cornwall to promote the What Will Your Drink Cost campaign. The campaign is aimed at promoting the sensible use of alcohol and to raise awareness of young people and adults of the dangers in heavy consumption of alcohol.
The patrols are linking in with towns throughout Cornwall including Liskeard, St Austell and Newquay. The Newquay operation will link in with the Devon and Cornwall Police and the British Transport Police operation Brunel that is a “meet and greet” operation for people coming down to Newquay on the High Speed Train service from London Paddington.
An article from November last year shows the effectiveness of the operation on lowering crime in Newquay can be found here.
ASB Officers will be accompanying Police Officers on patrols around the selected towns and a separate update will follow this newsletter on the findings and actions from the patrols.
We urge people to report incidents of ASB through our online form on the Safercornwall website, or by calling 0300 1234 232. Should you fear for your safety or the safety of others please call 999 straight away.
