In September 2011, Other Crime was divided into 6 categories - Drugs, Public Disorder & Weapons (which was later split further and so is not displayed here), Criminal Damage & Arson (CD&A), Theft - Shoplifting, Theft-Other and Other.

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".

Plymouth City Centre

Plymouth City Centre is made up of shops, nightclubs, pubs, cafes, restaurants, theatres, car parks and other businesses which give the neighbourhood its thriving economy.

The population is very transient, though there is a small residential area which consists of Harwell Court, Morley Court and Colin Campbell Court in the West End of the City Centre.  The bustling city centre is used by everyone living in or visiting the Plymouth area.

For a city centre in Britain, crime in Plymouth is very low and it is a safe place to live, work and visit. The main problems have been shoplifting during the day and largely alcohol-related assaults at night-time.

Crimes that have been of concern to residents are the use and supply of drugs, shoplifting and antisocial behaviour.  The neighbourhood is very well policed and as a team we are highly committed to tackling these problems head-on and reducing the fear of crime.

Hoe, Barbican & Bretonside

The areas of Hoe, Barbican and Bretonside border the waterfront and are collectively known worldwide as a centre for tourism and major events.  The population is varied and throughout the summer months swells immensely.

All three areas have a large transient population, especially the Hoe as it is serviced by the majority of the city’s hotels and guesthouses.  The Barbican is popular with visitors for its cobbled streets and historic buildings.  Many residential premises also surround it.  Bretonside is home to the main bus and coach station for Plymouth, as well as being home to many families.

Hoe, Barbican & Bretonside continues to expand with the development of new homes (which house mainly couples), while communities and families are more focused in the established residential areas.

Currently, the main problem in both areas is antisocial behaviour, which is caused by the transient population and is generally linked to drinking, driving or the night-time climate.  Incidents of serious crime are very low indeed.  The area is well policed and we will continue to tackle any such behaviour.
