“My name is John Dukes and I work for the Devon and Cornwall Police. I am the Police representative for Falmouth University and the University of Exeter.
I have been a Police Community Support Officer for the past 2 years having previously served as a Police Officer for 28 years, before this I served in the Royal Navy and saw active service in the Falklands conflict.
Since joining the police, I have spent most of my career in the Criminal Investigation Department investigating serious and series crime before diversifying into Community Policing, becoming employed as the Beat Manager for Penryn, so there isn’t much that I either haven't seen or dealt with over the years.
Working in partnership with the campuses Security staff, I believe we are making a big difference to the safety and security of the students both on and off site.
Over the coming years will be implementing more new initiatives to help improve the safety and security at the University for the future.
I’m available to provide help and advice on policing and crime issues that affect you personally. My aim is to help create a safe environment for all who live and work within the university and the wider community. My role is to provide a visible presence while patrolling on foot allowing accessibility and approachability in addition to providing crime prevention and personal safety advice throughout the year to help to keep students safe whilst living, studying and working in Falmouth and Penryn.”
