Our aim is that Cornwall is a place where the people who live, work and visit here feel safe and are safe, through partners working together to tackle crime, alcohol, drugs, anti-social behaviour and their impacts. The Safer Towns Programme provides a targeted multi-agency response in ten towns across Cornwall, directly involving local organisations and community groups in examining local problems and what everyone can do to improve them.

This is the 2019/20 Delivery Plan for Safer Redruth which has been developed with local partners and informed by the 2018 Redruth Town Profile. The Town Profiles are produced annually, alongside the Cornwall-wide Strategic Assessment, and they describe crime, anti-social behaviour and other local issues for the town. The full Strategic Assessment can be viewed here.

We are updating our Strategic Assessment now and the 2019 Town Profiles will be published in the autumn.

Our Strategic Assessment helps us to better target resources and effort on the issues affecting the town.

Redruth Town area has a population of 15,000 people, of which 24% live in areas described as deprived. Redruth is located within the urbanised network area of Camborne and Redruth.

A multi-agency Safer Redruth Action Team in the area focuses on emerging local issues as well as evidence gained from our Strategic Assessment and annual ‘Have Your Say Survey’.
