As part of the development of our new Partnership Plan, Safer Cornwall invites local people to “Have Your Say” about the community safety issues that matter on a day-to-day basis in the local area and what could be done to improve things. In 2022, the on-line survey was available on our website in July and August and a series of face-to-face events were held across Cornwall over the summer months.
These reports provides the key findings from the 2022 on-line survey.Have Your Say 2022 – on-line survey report Have Your Say Survey 2022 – Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence findings Have Your Say Survey 2022 – Hate Crime findings Have Your Say Survey 2022 – Safeguarding Have Your Say Survey 2022 – Vehicle related issues
Our Delivery Plan provides the detail about how this will be achieved over the next three years, alongside the specific things that we want to achieve in 2022/25 Our Delivery Plan is kept under constant review and may be subject to further revision if the national situation changes, for example, if a further lockdown is imposed.Safer Cornwall Delivery Plan 2022_25 – Year 2 23_24 Safer Cornwall Delivery Plan 2022_25 Appendix A Performance Measures (refresh)
To make the best use of resources, the Plan focuses on the issues that present the greatest risk to the safety of individuals, their families and the wider community and these are identified through the Strategic Assessment. The strategic assessment combines data analysis with insight, expertise and knowledge from local subject experts and the findings of relevant national research.
The strategic assessment is presented as an overview and a set of thematic assessments, covering the following topics:
The Strategic Assessment is refreshed annually and the 2022/23 update will be published here soon.Safer Cornwall Strategic Assessment 2021_22
Since 2012, analysts representing Devon and Cornwall Community Safety Partnerships and the police have worked together to build a shared evidence base, in the form of the Peninsula Strategic Assessment (PSA) and the suite of Organised Crime Local Profiles (OCLPs) that support the local delivery of the Government’s Serious and Organised Crime Strategy.
The PSA identifies and describes the main threats and risks to community safety across Devon and Cornwall, bringing together the key messages from the strategic assessments undertaken in each of the CSP areas, and includes the impacts of COVID based on our experiences of the first lockdown and the following months. It also identifies what responses are in place, highlights any areas for improvement and includes examples of best practice and innovation from individual CSPs.
It is used to support Peninsula collaboration and specifically to support the Police and Crime Commissioner in understanding and prioritising crime and disorder issues in Devon and Cornwall and developing the Police and Crime Plan.Peninsula Strategic Assessment refresh 2022_23
Town profiles have been developed for each of the ten towns in the Safer Towns Programme. The profiles aim to provide an understanding of trends in crime and anti-social behaviour alongside the key characteristics of each town and the views of local residents. These profiles were produced to inform the place-based action plans for each town and will be updated on an annual basis every autumn.Bodmin Town Profile Camborne Redruth Town Profile Falmouth Town Profile Liskeard Town Profile Newquay Town Profile Penzance Town Profile Saltash Town Profile St Austell Town Profile Truro Town Profile

Tackling the sexual exploitation of children, young people and adults at riskExploitation Strategy
Anti-social behaviour in all its forms is a very visible sign of disorder in our communities and is closely linked to perceptions of safety, satisfaction with the local area as a place to live, and confidence in local services. In its most persistent and serious forms anti-social behaviour can have a significant impact on health and wellbeing. Our strategy sets out a coordinated approach to address anti-social behaviour to ensure we work together to exercise our responsibilities in order to protect the rights of those living, working and visiting Cornwall.Cornwall ASB Strategy 2020-2023
