“I see the activities of Street Pastors as evidence of a healthy society where members of the community give up their time to support those in need through vulnerability or unwise choices. In many case I believe a gentle intervention from Street Pastors is more appropriate and effective than what might be seen as a confrontational intervention by police. “I have enormous respect for the commitment of your volunteers, giving up their time to deal with potentially difficult situations … this has particularly been reinforced on nights when I have seen them maintain their patrols in foul weather when a warm cup of coffee or bed must be a far more appealing prospect.” Inspector Andy Tomlinson, Devon and Cornwall Police
