Weekly drop-in sessions have been launched to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in Camborne.

Residents and businesses are being invited to voice their concerns throughout January.

It is part of a one-month pilot project organised by the Safer Camborne partnership.

"Crime and anti-social behaviour has a direct impact on the quality of life of our community and we are committed to working with partners to deal with these very important issues. 

"I hope the new drop in sessions will provide an opportunity to the public to discuss their concerns with officers and help us to make sure we are focusing our efforts on the issues that matter most to the people we serve".

Billy McWhirter, Police Sector Inspector for Camborne, Pool and Redruth

The next sessions will be at the One Stop Shop on Dolcoath Avenue from 10am - 12pm on Thursday 23rd and Thursday 29th.

"This is a great idea and I really hope the pilot is a success. 

"These are difficult but important subjects, and people will respond well to being able to discuss their concerns and observations informally. 

"If this goes well as a model I can see it being beneficial elsewhere in Cornwall".

Rob Nolan, Cornwall Council

The drop-in sessions are being held once a week throughout the rest of January, with residents and businesses urged to have their say
