Anti-social behaviour and speeding are among the issues being targeted in a crackdown by police in Redruth.

A planned operation took place recently by Redruth Neighbourhood Team after it received reports of anti-social behaviour in Fairfield Park.

Officers patrolled the area on foot throughout the afternoon and evening of June 18 and as a result one man was arrested on suspicion of drug offences, with others given warnings due to anti-social behaviour.

A team spokesperson said: "Operations like this take place regularly in Redruth town and the surrounding areas following concerns raised by the community.

"Please contact us via 101 or using our webpage to let us know of any issues in your area."

The officers have also been targeting speeding, with the neighbourhood spending a morning recently carrying out speed checks on Bucketts Hill, Redruth.

Out of the 155 vehicles checked, 15 were found to be driving at excessive speed.

The police spokesperson added: "These drivers have been contacted by the team. This was planned in response to complaints from the local community."

Earlier this year police in the area began weekly drop-in sessions in a bid to reduce the amount of crime and anti-social behaviour,

The one-month pilot scheme took place at Camborne One Stop Shop organised by the Safer Cornwall partnership.

Inspector Billy McWhirter, police sector inspector for Camborne, Pool and Redruth, said at the time: “Crime and anti-social behaviour has a direct impact on the quality of life of our community and we are committed to working with partners to deal with these very important issues."
