Dan believes that the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner must do more to make sure that people in North Cornwall can contact the police.

Speaking after police enquiry desks closed at Bude and Launceston police stations on Friday (31st October), North Cornwall's MP Dan Rogerson praised the excellent work that local policing team do, but insisted that the Conservative must do more to make sure that they are properly supported. 

Dan has urged Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg to urgently deal with problems with the non-emergency 101 number, and has asked Mr Hogg to consider re-opening the front desks or to take up offers from Cornwall Council and other organisations to use the likes of libraries and community centres as venues where residents can speak face to face with the Police. 

Dan is also asking Mr Hogg consider re-opening the front desks or to take up offers from Cornwall Council and other organisations to use the likes of libraries and community centres as venues where residents can speak face to face with the Police.

Commenting Dan said, "Many people tell me that they have given up trying to contact the non-emergency 101 number because it takes so long to get through to someone, or because calls of unanswered. This simply isn't good enough.

The Police and Crime Commissioner must take immediate action to get the 101 number up to scratch, and if her is not going to re-open the enquiry point in Bude and Launceston he should work with the like of Cornwall Council to offer a place for the public to speak to the police face-to-face. This will help to maintain the vital flow of information between local communities and their hardworking policing teams."
