The survey seeks to find out, amongst other things, what types of crime people and businesses have experienced, any hotspots where crime or anti-social behaviour may be taking place, and what the priorities for local police should be.
Commenting on the survey, the leader of the Liberal Democrats in Torbay, Councillor Steve Darling, said: “There have been increasing reports of late of anti-social behaviour and crime in Torbay, which is why we are conducting the survey to try and get a better picture of what is happening. This is in order to help inform how the Council can respond and work with partner agencies. We have already been out in the centre of Torquay and on the doorsteps and will be going out to other areas over the next few weeks.”
The chairman of Torquay Liberal Democrats, David Ward, said: “The retailers and other business are pleased to have someone asking for their views. It is quite disturbing to hear some of their experiences. We have been around about half the town centre so far and plan to complete Torquay town centre in the next few days. As Liberal Democrats we feel it is important that we listen to our communities rather than imposing our views on them.”
