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".

Okehampton Rural East consists of a widely rural patch with the two main towns being North Tawton and Chagford plus many pretty villages and hamlets in between.

Chagford is a thriving community on the edge of dartmoor known for its unique shops, vibrant arts community, literary festival, Music Festival, the annual Wonderworks crafts weekend, and other regular cultural events.

North Tawton is an ancient village situated on the east side of the Taw Valley – this friendly town is slowly expanding in size and it is the home of the BBC series ‘Jam and Jerusalem’. 

Okehampton Rural East is a safe place to live with very few serious incidents of crime occurring. We work alongside partner agencies to provide a high level of service to our residents. Our team work closely with the local primary schools and college to engage and educate children on various subjects such as internet safety, child sexual exploitation and road safety. We work together as one team to safeguard our communities and neighbourhoods. 

The main problems are parking, spontaneous incidents of vandalism and thefts of garden machinery and farm equipment.

You are welcome to contact our team with any comments or concerns you may have about your neighbourhood and we will endeavour to respond to your local policing needs.

If you attend Okehampton Police Station to report something you will have to use the wall phone outside of the station which will ring 101 or 999 only as we no longer have a front office. If you wish to speak with a member of staff personally please visit Heavitree Police Station in Exeter as it is the closest station with a front office.
