Devon and Cornwall Police crime website
At a recent Porthleven Town Council meeting the local PCSO ‘Paul’ gave his monthly crime report for the area. In the scheme of things, crime is low in Porthleven. During the meeting, Paul mention the police’s crime website. On this site it lists all the different types of crimes in a policing area. It also gives the figures for the whole of Cornwall.
For example in August, Porthleven had 37 crimes reported. These ranged from the most common crime being anti social behaviour with 14 reported to violence and sexual offences which had two. There was also three vehicle offences for the same period.
The information is delivered by means of an interactive map, which also gives the location of the crime down to the street. The site does not only list crimes, but also gives other information like who is your local beat manager, police officer and PCSO.
I have to say I am very impressed with this site. However, there is only one slight drawback to this site at the moment, and that it is slightly out of date with the last recorded information was for August. Still I am sure this will be soon sorted.
