Devon and Cornwall Police 

The western boundary of England, Devon and Cornwall is popular with tourists and attracts a huge surge of visitor traffic every year. Overall car crime for the region is above the national average, with 140 offences per 10,000 registered vehicles. However, it's worth noting that the crime average is somewhat inflated, with a combination of a low number of registered vehicles and a couple of high crime areas.

The largest crime hotspots in Devon and Cornwall are found in Plymouth, with the town centre being the worst area with 240 offences per 10,000 cars. The town’s southern district also suffered with significant car crime, with 208 comparable offences taking place between 2011-2012.

Criminal damage accounts for roughly half of all incidents, while theft from a motor vehicle makes up 35 per cent of all reported crimes. However, despite Plymouth’s crime hotspots, Devon and Cornwall on a whole is generally safe.

The rural district of PL18 in Cornwall saw just three cases of car crime per 10,000 vehicles in 2011-2012, making it the safest place in the whole of England and Wales, while Beaworthy in west Devon also ranked highly with just five comparable incidents.
