PEOPLE living in West Devon are being urged to take part in a police survey. 

Officers in the area want to know which issues communities in Okehampton, Tavistock and surrounding villages are concerned about. 

Sergeant Tom Ottley said: “In recent months concerns have been expressed to my officers when speaking with the communities of West Devon around crime and anti-social behaviour, however this has not always been reflected in the reports we are receiving on police systems. 

“This short survey will not take long to complete and is an opportunity for the people of West Devon to directly communicate to local police what their concerns are around crime and anti-social behaviour matters that affect them.  

“We want to know people’s priorities and the survey will help inform how best we target our resources and keep everyone safe.” 

You can access the survey online here: It must be completed before Friday, May 17. 

Okehampton Police Station on Barton Road has a public enquiry office if local people prefer face-to-face contact with an officer. It is open Monday to Saturday from 10am until 3pm.
