New Inspector Pledges Tough Stance on Booze
8:01am 28th October 2012
Newquay's new police boss has promised to carry on the fight against boozed-up trouble.
Inspector Dave Meredith is taking over next month, two years after being ousted from the job.
Community leaders were up in arms when he was moved from the role to become a response inspector in the east of the Duchy.
Now he is pledging to continue the tough summer crackdown that sent crime plummeting in the resort over the summer.
It included ID scanners in bars and a ban on glasses.
Inspector Meredith said that alcohol needed to be a priority: "That's always been our main problem and it probably always will be. We've done a lot of work to address this. We've had considerable success and certainly that will be the main thrust of the police action to work with our partners."
He hinted at new initiatives in the pipeline too: "To ensure that the hoteliers and guest houses take full responsibility for the people they take in, especially young persons. Work with people like street pastors, Street Safe and generally work with our partners to make sure we make good progress here."8:01am 28th October 2012
