Extra anti-social behaviour workers to patrol Penzance

More dedicated anti-social behaviour workers will be patrolling roads in Penzance

More anti-social behaviour workers will be patrolling the streets on Penzance following concerns raised by the local community.

At a recent public meeting, residents spoke about an increase in street drinking, anti-social behaviour and drug paraphernalia being discarded in the town centre.

As a result, police will also be increasing their presence around the town and holding drop in sessions for people to discuss their concerns.

“We are aware of the concern in the town about the increase in bad behaviour on the streets and are working closely with our colleagues in the Safer Penzance partnership to do what we can to discourage this behaviour.

But to do this we must be told at the time a problem is occurring so we have the opportunity to deal with it.

Recent commentary on social media and in local media suggests that not all crime is being reported to the police at the time it occurs, and in some cases it is not being reported at all. We need people to report issues to us direct."

– Nicholas Clarke, Penzance police inspector,

Repeat offenders are being tackled by Cornwall Council's anti-social behaviour caseworkers who, working with the police, have issued Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO) to seven repeat offenders over the last 12 months.
