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".

However, we are aware of certain deficiencies in this data which are beyond our control. That's because as a 3rd party developer, we do not collect the data, the Police do who then hand it over to another data company to release to 3rd party developers such as ourselves.

Bideford Town Centre is situated around the quay area of Bideford. The port at Bideford although small by comparsion to other docks is still a working dock with large ships often seen along the waters edge. It is also where The Oldenburg ship departs for trips to Lundy Island throughout the Spring and Summer. Bideford town also has many events on an annual basis including the Reggatta and Carnival at the begining of September and the New Years Eve celebrations, which attract up to 10,000 revellers annually and is arguably the largest New Years celebrations in the South West.

The predominately residential area of Bideford West is home to all the main secondary schools for the area, both state and independant. Bideford College is the main state school comprising approximately 1800 pupils and has currently gone through a £58million redevelopment. The independant school in the area is Kingsley College.

The area also has a small hospital which includes a minor injuries unit and Accident and Emergency Department.

In Atlantic Village there is also an out of town shopping Mall containing numerous retail outlets including ASDA.

The Bideford POLICE COMMUNITY OFFICE is open at WESTCROFT school, the local officers will now be using this as their daily base, it does not replace the police station but is an additional resource for the local team to use to help forge closer links with the community.
