Local policing priorities for St Blazey & Tywardreath

Looking for something else?

Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities in this neighbourhood.



We are asking for the Communities support in order to help protect vunerable people who may be the victims of Cuckooing.

Cuckooing is when a drug dealer moves into the home of someone vulnerable to store and sell their drugs.

The person will choose someone they can scare, bully and control. They will seem friendly at first.

Signs to look out for -

• More people than normal going into someone’s house

• People calling in at all times of day and night

• Different cars pulling up outside the house and not staying long

• Strangers who block off the doors and windows to the house

• If you haven't seen your neighbour for a while.

If you are worried about or think someone is a

victim of cuckooing please:

Call the police us 101

Tell your local PCSO or visit your local Police Station

Ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

You do not have to give your name or details.
