Partner agencies across Devon and Cornwall are launching a campaign to raise awareness around domestic abuse and have warned that it may increase in the coming weeks due to the impact of Covid-19. However, they want to reassure communities that victims will still have access to vital support services despite the current uncertainty.
A total of £500,000 has been pledged by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) to pay for more ‘bluelight, multi-skilled officers’ after the success of the Community Responders pilot in Devon.
Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez is due to confirm Devon and Cornwall Police's 2020/21 budget following a meeting today of the Police and Crime Panel today.
In her latest blog, Alison talks about the new Exeter and Liskeard police stations.
