Cherilyn Mackrory MP Truro Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour Survey

I have become increasingly aware of the situation with crime and anti-social behaviour in Truro city centre.

This type of behaviour is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

I am in regular contact with the local police team and, following a serious incident in Furniss Island in October, I called an urgent meeting with Truro’s Inspector and the Business Improvement District Team to discuss the issues in the city centre.

Unfortunately, the situation continues to intensify. More must be done as a matter of urgency.

I urge everyone who experiences or witness’s crime and/or anti-social behaviour to report it to 101 or 999, depending on the seriousness of it. There is no substitute for this, and resources go where reports are.

While data on the number of reports is helpful when examining the situation, it would also help the case if I could prove there is a clear view from the local community.

This will help me when asking for greater resource, whether that be finance or extra police officers.

To do this, I thought it would be helpful to put together a survey.

Why am I doing a survey? Your response to my survey will directly shape my representations going forward. I have seen various comments and press stories lately about it, but there are not that many people contacting me direct about what is happening.

I want to hear everyone’s comments and experiences about what is happening so I can come up with a proper plan with the key local stakeholders – like the police.

Please answer the questions below. I will let the survey run until 13th December 2021. I will then collate the results and share them with everyone who has responded, as well as using them to support the case for action.

If you require a paper copy of this survey please contact my office on 01872 229698 or cherilyn.mackrory.mp@parliament.uk as I would be more than happy to send you one.
