What is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s position on drugs?
The Commissioner views drugs in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to be a scourge on our society. They have a devastating impact on individuals, families and businesses in communities. Drugs cause immeasurable harm to people, our economy, our health services and people’s ability to live happy and rewarding lives. For this reason, Drugs is a key priority area within the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan 2021-2025
The Commissioner is committed to adopting a two-fold approach to tackling drugs, which addresses both the supply of drugs into our communities and the level of demand for those drugs. Above all, she is determined to equip people with the confidence and tools to report these crimes.
