Website to Tackle Crime in Cornwall
7:02am 5th June 2012
Cornwall gets to have its say on crime.
The Council is launching a new website.Safer Cornwall will use our comments on everything from violence and anti-social behaviour, to target problem areas.
Spokesman David Parker is urging locals to report problems: "If there is an issue in a local area, if enough people come together and report it to the police, the police are then empowered to do something about it. Without reports and without evidence there's little that they can do.
"We want to make sure that people, whether they live here, whether they visit here or they work here, that they are safe and that they feel safe.
"We know in Cornwall that it's the third lowest crime county in the country but we do know that a lot of people have a fear of crime that is not proportionate to that low rate".
