Police and Crime Commissioner visits Safer Streets Projects in Camborne & Redruth

5 March 2024

On Tuesday 13th February, Alison Hernandez, Devon and Cornwall’s Police & Crime Commissioner, visited Camborne and Redruth to see how ‘Safer Streets’ funding is being used to impact crimes such as Violence Against Women and Girls, Neighbourhood Crime, and Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).

The Commissioner met local partners and stakeholders including Town and County Councillors before walking around various ‘ASB hotspots’ in Camborne. She met with the Street Marshalls employed in the town and heard their perspective on the projects impact in the town.

This was followed by a visit to Hideaway 77 Youth Cafe in Redruth, where Safer Streets funded projects are helping to engage young people. The Commissioner spent time with the young people themselves and the specialist youth workers who are delivering programmes which educate young people in Healthy Relationships and other positive peer work.

Safer Streets funding has enabled the following package of safety measures to be implemented across the two towns by April 2025;

Carol Mould, Cornwall’s Portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods said: “We are excited to have this special opportunity to support the communities of Camborne and Redruth. The impact of anti-social behaviour and crimes such as violence against women and girls can be life-changing. Nobody should have to tolerate or live in fear of it, therefore we welcome the chance to deliver additional measures which will prevent it from happening and offer lasting solutions.”
