I have noticed some drug dealing or drug taking in my local area, what can be done about it?
One of the best ways for drugs offences to be tackled in your local area is for incidents to be reported to relevant authorities. This is essential for improving the intelligence that the police have and enabling a more targeted approach to tackling drugs. The Commissioner is very aware that, too often, people are afraid to report these crimes and she is therefore actively working towards giving people the confidence and tools necessary to report these offences.
The Devon and Cornwall Police website contains information on how to report crime or pass information to the force.
You can also report drug dealing occurring in your community via Crimestoppers, an online platform which gives people the power to speak up 100% anonymously via Independent UK charity taking crime information anonymously | Crimestoppers (crimestoppers-uk.org) or by calling 0800 555 111.
However, if you are in danger or believe someone may be in danger, please call 999 immediately.
