Policing Challenges Lie Ahead

There is a warning the days of extra police on Cornwall's streets are over.

Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg says the fight will be to hold onto the officers we have got.

It is a year since the Helston man took on the role.

But he warns there still needs to be changes: "The police who are a noble body of people there to protect us in the public realm but they are, in many ways, a family all of their own and I need them to open the doors to what the public actually want which is to help the police.

"It's not going to see more police officers. We're going to have a challenge in holding up the numbers so if it wants a safer community it has to play an active part and the police have got to enable that by opening its doors to the public.

Mr Hogg says stopping cuts to officers on the street will be a "challenge" and highlights tackling alcohol as being another key battleground in keeping us safe: "If we can reduce the overindulgence in alcohol not only are we going to help victims and help those who have an alcohol problem, we're going to reduce the demands on A&E and reduce the demands on policing so we can cope better."
