Police crackdown on illegal parties in Cornwall.

 

Dedicated patrols will start up over the Bank Holiday and continue throughout the summer.

 

Officers say things like raves can be dangerous, disrupt locals and lead to drink and drugs arrests.

 

Detective Superintendent Glen Mayhew said; "Whilst illegal raves tend to occur in the remote areas, they have an impact on local residents and others who look to make use of these areas for leisure activities. The raves are illegal as they are not only very disruptive but they present dangers to those who attend. Safety regulations used at all public events were introduced to ensure safety of those attending, yet illegal raves do not follow any guidance. We have seen incidents where people have got lost in poor weather in very remote areas and come to harm, as well as people attending suffering medical episodes and in need of medial attention, yet due to terrain and the management of the rave site it is extremely difficult for police and other emergency services to respond to calls.

 

"During previous illegal raves, we have arrested people connected with the organised sale of illegal drugs as well as drink driving and criminal damage. We will not shy away from using all appropriate legislation to prevent such events and where a rave has been established we will look to seize sound equipment.

 

"Investigations will be conducted against the organisers who could be liable for criminal and civil offences.

 

"The key to preventing illegal raves is an early notification from the public. If anyone suspects people are visiting a particular area with a view to planning an illegal gathering, or they see the site being set up then please ring the police as it is more effective to prevent raves taking place rather than trying to stop them when they are in full swing.

 

"We would actively encourage members of the public to report any illegal gatherings as soon as possible in order the police may prevent them from taking place. We will take this robust action not only to prevent the disruption to the community but also to ensure the safety of those who may otherwise put themselves in danger by attending such an event."
