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".

We are proud to boast that Ilfracombe is a low crime area and North Devon is one of the safest places to live in the UK, but we do ask that you stay vigilant and follow a few simple ideas

  • Don’t leave valuables on display in your vehicle
  • Don’t allow strangers into your home unsupervised
  • Drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive.
  • Please promptly report any suspicious activity

Street Pastors

Street Pastors engage with people on the streets has introduced volunteer street pastors from six local churches to help make the streets feel safer by working with people to resolve a number of issues. A street pastor is someone from the Christian community who is willing to care, listen and help people, especially the vulnerable and young. They get to know people in the community by building relationships with them to discover their needs and what can be done to help them. Street pastors operate each weekend on a Saturday night between 10pm and 4am. They have a set patrol covering the High Street, Fore Street and Wilder Road, and also patrol Combe Martin during special events.
