In September 2011, Other Crime was divided into 6 categories - Drugs, Public Disorder & Weapons (which was later split further and so is not displayed here), Criminal Damage & Arson (CD&A), Theft - Shoplifting, Theft-Other and Other.

From May 2013, the following changes were made to the crime categories:
I) The violent crime category was renamed "violence and sexual offences"
2) A new category for "bicycle theft" was created which previously fell within "other theft"
3) A new category for "theft from the person" was created which previously fell within "other theft"
4) Public disorder and weapons were then split into two new categories; "public order" and "possession of weapons"
5) Both "other firearms offences" and "other knives offences" which were in "other crime" were moved into "possession of weapons".

The picturesque fishing town of St Ives is situated on the north coast of west Cornwall. It has a population of about 8,000 and some sources say this figure triples in the summer months when our guest houses, B&Bs and campsites fill up.

We are fortunate that our crime rates do not rise in the same way. Crime in the town is normally of a petty nature, such as antisocial behaviour-related incidents and minor thefts.

Parking is a major source of concern for residents in the summer months, what with the arrival of many extra visitors and most of our narrow roads having been originally designed to take a horse and cart. Speeding motorists are also a concern for locals and this is again exacerbated by our narrow roads.

St Ives still has a real community feel about it with the friendly locals and visitors enjoying the almost Mediterranean atmosphere provided by the vibrant pubs and restaurants the town has to offer.

The town has three main beaches; the harbour, Porthmeor and Porthminster. The latter two are patrolled in season by RNLI lifeguards. These lifeguards are there for your safety so please pay due regard to them.

If you are visiting St Ives on holiday, remember that while we do have very low crime rates we are not immune to opportunist crime so please take normal personal security measures.
