What is the Police and Crime Commissioner doing to address drug-related antisocial behaviour (ASB)?

As part of the Commissioner’s over-arching focus on tackling drugs, a range of initiatives are taking place across the peninsula to address issues linked to ASB - such as street-based drug-taking and drug littering. Below are a few examples: 

  • Investment in a dedicated Crimestoppers resource to enhance and improve intelligence on drug activity across Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
  • Working with partners to take action in areas where the presence and impacts of drugs are the highest 
  • Supporting the delivery of Safer Streets projects across qualifying towns and cities in Devon and Cornwall. Commissioners and partners have secured more than £5 million of government funding this year for Safer Streets. These projects include significant focus on town and city-centre based ASB, including drug-related ASB 
  • Enabling local communities to take forward their own projects through the Commissioner’s Community Grant Fund
