Community safety

Cornwall Council, Town and Parish, and the Police and Crime Commissioner elections information and results.

Community safety is all about the issues that make people unsafe, or feel unsafe, in their communities. Safer communities depend on everyone working together to find local solutions to local problems.

Anti-social behaviour and nuisance

One of the biggest problems affecting communities in Cornwall is anti-social behaviour. This covers malicious, thoughtless and inconsiderate activity. These have the potential to damage community life.

Living Safe and Well

We can provide a range of help and support for the following:

Children locked in vehicles

If you are concerned about the welfare of another person’s life, never hesitate to call 999.  Read our advice to remember if you are ever locked outside from your child and tips to prevent the risk of this happening to you.  

Community Safety Award

The Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Award was launched in response to significant flooding in Cornwall in recent years.


Remember, you can call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 any time night or day for real-time flood warnings and advice.

In the event of major flooding in the county, we work closely with other agencies to deliver a coordinated approach to the operation.
