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 neighbourhood of 'Newquay Town' is both commercial & residential. It mainly consists of retail establishments & tourist attractions, however includes dwellings & temporary accomodation.It also includes much of the town's shore line, with Fistral & Towan beaches. The boundaries of the 'Newquay Town' beat are from Berry Road along Mount Wise into Pentire & follows the shore line back to Cliff Road.

Newquay is a popular tourist destination & in the summer months the population of the town increases from 20,000 to up to 120,000. A large number of that increase is due to young people travelling to the town to enjoy the night time economy. During the summer holidays a large number of students desend on the town during 'summer break' having completed their GCSE or A Level exams. The town hosts several surfing & music events, including the annual Boardmasters Festival, attracting up to 30,000 people over the event.

Whilst the town remains a safe & welcoming environment, it has suffered issues of alcohol fuelled violent crime & anti social behaviour during the night time economy. Officers are continuing to work with partner agencies including Cornwall Council & Newquay Town Council in order to tackle these issues & officers continue to combat such behaviour in a positive & pro active manner.

The above officers patrol your area daily on a regular basis. Their duties include  high visibility foot patrol, conducting reassurance visits to members of the public who have been a victim of crime, prioritising issues raised within the community and working with partner agencies to improve the quality of life of those living and visiting the town. Officers meet with both the Town Council and Residents Association to take questions and report on progress being made within the area.
