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".

Present-day Bude is a pleasant small town with character. It has two beaches with excellent broad sands close to the town itself, and is a good centre for adjacent beaches.

Its sea front faces west and the Atlantic rollers make for good surfing when conditions are right. The main access road in and out of Bude is the Atlantic Highway (A39).

In the eighteenth century there was a small unprotected tidal harbour at Bude, but it was difficult whenever the sea was up.

The Bude Canal Company built a canal and improved the harbour. Around twenty small boats use the tidal moorings of the original harbour during the summer months. Most are sport fishermen, but there is also some small-scale, semi-commercial, fishing for crab and lobster.

Stratton is a small town situated near the coastal resort of Bude. The town once had a jail, a police station and a courthouse, but the police station has now been moved to Bude, the prison demolished and the courthouse converted into two dwellings. A battle of the English civil war took place here on May 16, 1643.  

There is a very strong volunteer culture in Bude and its surrounding areas. There are more Police Volunteers helping in our community than anywhere else in the whole of Devon and Cornwall.

Crime rates are amongst the lowest in Cornwall and the Constabulary area as a whole.
