Have you seen or experienced Anti-Social Behaviour?

In the September edition of the Callington News,  we provided you with information on the Police Neighbourhood Police Team, which we hope you found informative and in a format that you can cut out and keep safe for future reference.     This month, we wanted to have a feature on Anti-Social Behaviour with a particular focus on the Free Car Park in Saltash Road. Anti-social behaviour is defined in law as:

‘behaviour which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more other persons not of the same household as the perpetrator’.

Example of anti-social behaviour can included verbal abuse, vandalism, joyriding, noise nuisance, criminal damage, assault, throwing missiles, underage drinking, engaging in threatening behaviour in groups or harassment of residents or passers-by.

For further information on what can be done to tackle anti-social behaviour, and how to report matters to Cornwall  Council and Police, please follow the links below:

Complete the form on this link or ring 0300 1234 232. For 24 hour fire safety advice call 0800 3581 999

Taking things a step further with the FREE Car Park in Saltash Road

On a related matter, as landowner to the FREE CAR Park in Saltash Road,  we would like to call on your help and knowledge regarding any anti-social behaviour you may see or hear in this particular area. Nearby residents have reported concerns regarding car horns blowing late into the evenings and speeding in and around the car park.  Last year we worked in collaboration with the Police and Anti-Social Behaviour Team at Cornwall Council asking neighbouring properties to complete a diary of any concerns so we could build up a picture of the extent of these problems, because without evidence we cannot pursue matters and take action.  Sadly the uptake and interest in this initiative was very poor so the matter was closed.

However, concerns have been raised again with the Town Council and we would like to work with our residents in a slightly different way in an effort to improve engagement and collect intelligence.  If you experience any concerns at the FREE car park, please still report it to the Police and Cornwall Council (as explained on page 1) but can you also send the details to Callington Town Council.

For three months, we would like to run a campaign whereby residents email into the Town Council on  to report any concerns regarding traffic matters such as speeding, horn blowing, car doughnuts or general anti-social behaviour  in and around the FREE CAR PARK at Saltash Road. If adequate and quality intelligence is collected we can look to find ways to resolve such matters. This  campaign will run from the 1st November 2019  – 31st January 2020. This dedicated email is NOT meant to be used as a substitute to contacting Cornwall Council and the Police, you will still need to report it.  The information gathered from the will then be considered by the Outside Services Committee.   When providing information to the Town Council on the dedicated traffic email, please provide as much intelligence as possible, namely time, date, registration numbers and the nature of the problem, a description of the driver and any passengers; such as age, male or female, what they were wearing.  We have a good CCTV system and with that information we can identify our miscreants.    So please continue to contact the Police.  In any emergency call 999, for non-emergencies call 101.
