Wiltshire Police

The patch of Wiltshire Police covers a scattering of towns and rural districts.

The county’s biggest hotspots are predominantly found in Swindon, with its two central postcodes – SN1 and SN2 – recording 241 and 171 respective crimes per 10,000 registered vehicles. The rural village of Broad Blunsdon also ranks in the county’s top three places for car crime, with 149 comparative offences, although this is somewhat inflated due to the fact the village has a low number of registered cars.

Theft from a motor vehicle and criminal damage accounts for roughly 90 per cent all offences, with just nine per cent of incidents involving a being stolen.

Wiltshire’s safest area is found to the north of Swindon, in the small village or Purton. The village’s postcode recorded just 15 offences, while nearby Malmesbury also ranked well with 27 incidents taking place per 10,000 cars. 

A lack of detailed data means we are unable to display the crime rates by manufacturer for the Wiltshire Police area.
