Reporting Crime and Anti Social Behaviour in the Parish

Aug 17, 2023 | Parish News

The Parish Council (PC) recently invited the Police and Cornwall Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Caseworker to a meeting to discuss the issues raised by members of the public in Connor Downs.  From that meeting the PC notes that the best way to tackle ASB and crime is for members of the public to report it.  This is the best way the Police can build up a picture and evidence against the minority of people who want to cause trouble for others.  The Police can also use the crucial evidence our community gives them to argue that more funding is required to tackle the problem.  The Police and CC can tackle the issue in several ways but only if they have the evidence to back it up.  The PC knows how strong our community is, that was evident by the number of residents who attended the meeting, so here are a few ways you can help:-

  1. If you or anyone you see is in immediate danger or fear, or if the crime is in progress, then call 999
  2. If an incident is occurring or has occurred phone 101 or online to report what you have seen (this is crucial to help the organisations who can act build up a body of evidence)
  3. If you are concerned about giving your details you can always attend one of the Police surgeries; you can find more information on these here: or here but please check the dates/times with the Police before setting out –
  4. To anonymously report a crime contact Crimestoppers, by phone 0800 555 111 or online
  5. If you are unable to use any of the above methods you can contact the Parish Council or Connor Downs Residents Association for help
