Boozy Trouble to be Top Priority for New Police Boss
7:01am 11th December 2012
The new man in charge of Cornwall's police says tackling booze fuelled trouble will be a top priority.
Tony Hogg has been speaking after taking over as Police and Crime Comissioner.
The former man in charge of RNAS Culdrose tells us it is stretching resources for all emergency services.
He said: "Alcohol in moderation - I'd wish everyone had a great time out there. But alcohol in its misuse consumes resources in a huge way. It puts a load on the police, the hospitals, the social services. We've got a direct correlation with domestic violence and other forms of violence.
"We need to understand that when we use alcohol in an inappropriate way the cost is enormous."
He was speaking after a fact finding visit to Plymouth where he spent several hours on the front line with officers, visiting a custody suite, CCTV control room, and Crownhill Police station.
He joined Police patrolling pubs and clubs in Union Street, North Hill, Barbican and Mutley. He also met Street Pastors in the city centre.
He said: “I saw examples of antisocial behaviour and how the police dealt with it. Alcohol misuse, for me, is way up at the top of the list of issues because of the damage it can do in terms of wider violence, the effect on children and the pressure it puts on the police service.”7:01am 11th December 2012
