Police commissioners seek public views on road safety

Police and crime commissioners are urging people to take 60 seconds to influence Government policy on roads policing.

Alison Hernandez, the national PCC lead on road safety, has asked the other 41 commissioners in England and Wales to support and promote a survey so results can be fed into a Department for Transport Call for Evidence.

She is hoping for a significant response to what is believed to be the first national poll co-ordinated by PCCs.

The poll, which can be found here, is open until 30 September 2020.

New CCTV system up and running in Exmouth

A new CCTV system has now gone live in Exmouth to further strengthen the town’s response to seafront antisocial behaviour.

Funded by £6,000 from Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez’s Safer Summer Scheme the new camera aims to help people feel safer when they visit the seafront.

An outbreak of antisocial behaviour in Exmouth hit the media in late June and prompted Commissioner Hernandez to invest £500,000 in tourist hotspots across Devon and Cornwall.

Exmouth was the first to receive its share of the funding and a series of measures were quickly put in place – including beach marshals patrolling the seafront, Marine Drive and Orcombe Point – which helped ease the immediate problems.

The marshals will be deployed until September but the Installation of the new CCTV camera, which is situated above the lifeboat station, means there will be longer term legacy benefits.
