Avon and Somerset Constabulary

Avon and Somerset Constabulary's patch covers a wide area, taking in Bristol, Bath, Taunton, Bridgwater, Yeovil, Frome and many rural areas including the Exmoor national park.

As you can see from the hotspots on the map, it's Bristol that's the biggest area for car crime, dwarfing the other cities and large towns. The city centre postcode of BS1 has the highest rate of any postcode in Avon and Somerset, with 570 crimes reported for every 10,000 cars registered. The postcode is at the heart of the city, taking in Bristol Temple Meads station, a range of hotels and bars and many waterfront areas.

It has more than double the amount of reported crime as the nest postcode area, which is BS8 and takes in Clifton and the other side of the Avon river. 

The first 12 postcodes in the table are Bristol BS. BS16 is noteworthy as with 101,978 cars resistered, it's the fifth highest number of cars in the UK.

Nearby Bath is the second largest hotspot, but pales into significance comapred to Bristol. The city centre BA1 postcode sees 103 crimes for every 10,000 registered cars, but doesn't appear until about a third of the way down the table. It's behind TA1 and TA6, too, the two highest ranking postcodes for the Taunton area. Again TA1 is a town centre location and as such sees a concentration of people and associated crime. 

Car owners in TA23 are the safest in the area, with 19 crimes per 10,000 cars, but it should be remembered that a large proportion of this postcode is in Exmoor National Park. The rural location of BA7, just outside Glastonbury, matches its figure, but with it's entire postcode in an in habitable area.
