Ambitious plans for a new centre to tackle violent crime have been unveiled in a joint £1m project between Devon and Cornwall’s Chief Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner.
The new approach is laid out in papers being presented today Friday February 7 at a meeting of the Police and Crime Panel in Plymouth.
Shaun Sawyer and Alison Hernandez say they want to invest £1m in an innovative new preventative centre which will tackle the violence that is blighting lives across the country before the epidemic in knife crime spreads to the westcountry.
You don't need a centre you need coppers walking the streets and gaining local knowledge and the confidence of the local people.
The centre will just be a money pit that does very little other than house a group of over paid individuals sitting in sterile environments. It will then most probably be closed after a year or so as ineffectual.
Real world problems need real world actions.
Just look who is trying to put this forward....speaks volumes.
