The Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall announced in May this year that 5 public enquiry offices in the Duchy, including ones in Bude and Launceston, are to be axed.
The closures happened in October and mean that members of the public can longer walk in to report crime or discuss other issues, and will leave the equivalent of one enquiry desk for every 133,000 people in Cornwall.
Across the whole of North Cornwall only one public enquiry office is to remain open in Bodmin, and this will only be manned from 9-5, Monday to Friday.
Dan feels passionately that traditional policing values still need to exist so residents and communities in North Cornwall continue to feel safe and secure.
Please sign his petition below calling upon the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg to reverse his decision to close Police counters in Launceston and Bude.
We the undersigned call on Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner to reverse his decision to close Bude and Launceston Police Station counters.
We have serious concerns that the closure of these stations' front desks will lead to a reduced reporting of serious crime and will harm relations between the police and local residents.
