Our top priorities for your neighbourhood are as follows:
- OP Sceptre - Knife Crime
- OP Protractor: Youth ASB across Exeter
- OP Cleft: Tackling drug crime and organised crime gangs in Exeter
OP Sceptre - Knife Crime ▼
Priority reason: 31 Aug 2019
In response to a national trend in increased knife crime in cities, the Neighbourhood team have prioritised resources in this area.
Targetting individuals who present a risk by carrying knives or by using knives to commit crime. Preventative work is being carried out with young people who are known to, or information suggests that they are involved in knife crime or carrying a blade.
UPDATE 31 Aug 2019 Youth issues in residental areas
We have recently seen an increase of Youth ASB in residential areas, this is likely in response to active targeting in the city centre. We are therefore patrolling these areas and escalating the issue with the city's housing providers.
OP Protractor: Youth ASB across Exeter ▼
Priority reason: 31 Aug 2019
Serious Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and crime across the city and wider area involving groups of youths and youth gangs. This involves organised theft, intimidation drug use and dealing, criminal damage and abuse towards the general public.
We will not tolerate anti-social behaviour and assaults on police. Therefore we are actively seeking-out and targetting individuals who are causing harm, utilising stop and search powers, seizing alcohol and drugs, dispersing problem groups and arresting offenders when required.
We have no updates to report at this time.

We are regularly patrolling the worst affected areas and working with partners to protect vulnerable people. This includes cuckooing victims, which are individuals being targeted by the drug gangs to run drugs for them whilst taking advantage of their property.
Should you have any information or witness drug dealing/taking, then please get in contact with us. In an emergency call 999. Otherwise please email email@example.com or call 101.When you report incidents it is especially useful to provide person descriptions.
