Police are asking people to let them know their concerns so they can target resources to where they matter.

People can give their views about safety concerns in their communities this March using the Devon and Cornwall Police and Safer Cornwall annual survey, available below.

The Safer Cornwall ‘Have your say’ survey aims to measure residents’ feelings on safety year on year and to help target resources to address crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.

Safer Cornwall’s partner agencies will also be gathering paper responses in our priority towns including Penzance, Redruth, Camborne, Falmouth, Newquay, St Austell, Bodmin and Liskeard.”

A council spokesman said: "The results of the annual survey are vital in making the best use of limited and in some cases diminishing resources. Accurate information will allow for effective and best value targeting of problem areas."

Any staff conducting face-to-face surveys will always carry identification.

The survey only takes three or four minutes and can be completed online at safercornwall.co.uk.
