Camborne Street Marshalls Return

As part of Safer Streets 5, Camborne Town Council has opted to direct some of the funding to run an intensive ‘Street Marshalls’ intervention in Camborne Town Centre. The Marshalls will address the community’s concerns about anti-social behaviour (ASB) issues whilst we wait for the new ASB Enforcement Officer for Camborne and Redruth to start their post in early 2024.

The Marshalls are locally recruited professional security personnel with a good knowledge of the area and expectations of the role, as they previously worked as Camborne’s Street Wardens during the post COVID-19 high street reopening. They will patrol the streets, visit businesses and focus on ‘ASB hot-spots’ including Commercial Square plus our parks, allotments, church yards and public toilets. Their shifts vary over the course of the week, to cover peak times and to avoid predictability. They aim to guide members of the public, support businesses with any ASB issues, intervene and professionally report any problems or concerns to relevant community partners including the Police and support agencies such as ‘Streetlink’ and ‘We Are With You’.

Although the Marshalls have been in post for a short time, their presence is already being positively felt in the town. Members of the public are reminded that although the Marshalls are in place, if you witness ASB or crime it is essential it is reported via 101 or 999.
