Op Relentless

Priority reason: 09 Jan 2019

Update 09/01/2019


We are continuing to work with other agencies including St petrocs outreach team to tackle to issudes of Anti Social Bhehaviour & Street drinking within Truro



Over the winter months of 2017 Truro City experienced a surge in ASB associated with a cohort of individuals of whom were either homeless, rough sleepers or street drinkers.  This behaviour affected those living and working in Truro and there was an increased fear of crime from within the community.

These issues were tackled via a multi-agency approach under the banner of Truro Safe. Since this time, issues have reduced significantly however of late there has been a notable increase in activity which shows behaviour similar to that seen in 2017.

Reports have been received from public, businesses and local counsellors that they feel that the previous troubles and instances of criminality are returning to the City Centre.

Our aim with 'Op Relentless' is to offer reassurance, enforcement and safeguarding by way of a multi-agency approach.




Over the past months local officers have collated data on those people who have been causing Anti - Social behaviour and criminality.

Criminal Behaviour Orders have been amended where the prohibitions have been broken - resulting in prison sentences.



Our response:

UPDATE 09 Jan 2019 Op Relentless


Multi Operational Meeting taken place to discuss individulas who require safeguarding and further intervention.

Individuals are being sign posted to receieve the most appropriate services.
