I am PC Geoff Streatfield, I have been a Police Officer since January 2006 and based in Camborne for the whole of this period. I am local to the area and prior to joining the Police service I worked in the engineering industry for 21 years.
The beat is supported by PCSO's (Police Community Support Officers) Phillip Graham, Charlotte Grimstead & Zoe Smith.
Please contact us about any issues happening in your neighbourhood. If we know what is going on we can help. Without your help, we cannot do our job to the best of our abilities. Neighbourhood Policing involves everyone and I am determined that we improve our engagement with the community, and with our partnership agencies who also have an important part to play in efforts to drive down crime, the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.
I am fully committed to working with our partner agencies to deal with priorities raised by the communities we serve.
Other officers that make up your neighbourhood team are:
PCSO 30597 Phillip Graham
I am PCSO Phillip Graham, I have been a PCSO since July 2012. Prior to moving to this position was a retail manager in Truro. I have also had previous experience with the police as an officer with the Special Constabulary stationed in Truro. This was a fantastic position to hold and gave me a real opportunity to help others first hand in their time of need. I’m a great believer in helping those around you and the community you serve and enjoy working with the team and community in Camborne.
PCSO 30456 Zoe Smith
I am PCSO Zoe Smith, I have been a PCSO since April 2008, working in both Camborne and Redruth. I have always worked on the Camborne North area and I enjoy being able to get out and about talking to people and helping where I can. Prior to being a PCSO I worked in a doctors surgery.
The beat is also supported by 12 officers from the Special Constabulary, who give up their free time to help their local communities.

A message from the Neighbourhood Team Leader
Autumn 2013 continues to be a busy for the Camborne Neighbourhood Team particularly with our partnership work aimed at dealing with alcohol related disorder in and around the town centre. This remains an important focus of our work as the violence with injury type of offence often associated with alcohol is a crime category that others in the community can also help reduce. We are fortunate in Camborne that we have a strong and influential Pubwatch scheme attended and run by those that work in the licensing trade. In addition we have received significant support for our work by both our national and independent off-licensed premises.
High visibility foot patrols across the Camborne North, West and South beat areas continue with the neighbourhood officers aware that the communities like to see officers out and about as often as possible. These patrols provide an excellent opportunity for officers to meet people from our neighbourhood beat areas so next time you see us out and about please feel free to stop us and have a chat.
Another area of our work that continues to dominate is our ongoing work with statutory and voluntary partners in dealing with issues of vulnerability occasionally although not specifically associated with homelessness. Fortunately, this winter (so far) has been relatively mild and where we see an opportunity to assist, neighbourhood officers will work with our partner agencies and organisations to help reduce harm. Looking forward to the rest of 2013 then retail theft will become an increasing focus of our work in and around the town centre. Meat products are high on the list of target items and the police are keen to work with the retail sector to encourage more effective crime prevention measures where that may be necessary.
If you wish to speak with me or any other member of the Camborne Police Neighbourhood Team or have information that may assist us with our work please contact the team via the details on this page
