On Patrol with Paignton Police

I am grateful to Devon and Cornwall Police officers for their time discussing local policing issues and concerns. Whilst on patrol with Paignton Police, it was clear that whilst Devon is one of the safest areas of the country, antisocial behaviour and in particular linked to alcohol, is the chief concern for local people.

The amount of time wasted by police, the courts and the nhs dealing with alcohol related illness, crime and antisocial behaviour is a disgrace and we are all picking up the bill..around £20billion per year.
