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 March into April 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.
The Anti Social Behaviour Team working closely with Devon and Cornwall Police and Cornwall Housing, applied for a closure order on a property in Truro. The premise was associated with serious and persistent nuisance and disorder with calls to the police being received at all times of the day and night. Residents suffered months of fights, loud arguments and rowdy behaviour from the tenant and visitors to the property which led them to fear for their safety and that of their properties. Truro Magistrates Court granted a 3 month closure order on 18 March 2014.
Operation Calf – Hayle
The Anti Social Behaviour Team was involved in a major Operation run by Devon and Cornwall Police which included assistance from Devon & Cornwall Housing and Guinness Hermitage Trust. More than 50 officers executed eight search warrants at properties across Hayle in Operation Calf. The Op was put in place following a rise in crime and drug activity in the area and included long term undercover operations.
