Crimes Not Recorded Properly

A report warns "considerable numbers" of crimes and antisocial behaviour in Cornwall and Devon have not been properly recorded.

Inspectors say the problems came as police numbers across the southwest began to drop. But they say most have now been fixed.

A team from HM Inspectorate of Constabulary visited Devon and Cornwall Police shortly after a new call handling system was introduced. Their findings "indicated some cause for concern - specifically the under-recording of crime."

Chief Superintendent Chris Boarland is Cornwall's most senior officer. He said, "There were some teething problems which hopefully we've put right now. But I'm confident that we've got the message out about the need to accurately record crimes as they occur."

The number of officers is due to drop by seven hundred by 2015. The cuts prompted a new model for working, which the force describes as "a significant period of change."
