Recorded crime in Falmouth continues to fall while the detection rate stands at almost a third.
Sgt Gary Watts told Falmouth Town Council this was ‘very good’ and that there had been “quite a hefty reduction” in crime in the area which includes a 37 per cent decrease in serious violent offences.
Vehicle crime had seen a 0.8 per cent increase, which equates to one crime, while plans were in place to tackle a spike in marine crime.
Shoplifting had fallen down, while a slight increase in domestic abuse, was put down to encouraging more people to report it, “ So that is an increase we like to see,” added Sgt Watts.
