Police to carry out force wide action day
Police throughout Devon are preparing for Wednesday’s force wide day of action, named Operation Everest.
Devon and Cornwall police will be hosting a series of events aimed at speaking to local people about the concerns that matter to their community.
These events will help identify and tackle local priorities, with several pro-active operations taking place on the day.
Neighbourhood policing teams, together with partner agencies will take to the streets to talk to residents and school children about local policing issues.
The day’s operation will include speed watch and driver initiatives; a football-free ladies only event, visits to licensing premises and initiatives around anti-social behaviour. Also included is PACT (Partners and Communities Together) surveys of residents and shoppers.

The police said Operation Everest was one example of how officers were delivering the promises set out in the Policing Pledge, that include providing more information about local neighbourhood policing teams and ensuring that communities have a stronger voice in telling the police what is most important to them.
Sergeant Jim Lewis-Clarke said: “The activities taking place are about making sure that the public needs are at the centre of policing activity.
