To give some impression of the scale of the area, police headquarters in Exeter is nearer to London than the furthest extremity of the Force.
Policing an area of this size offers many challenges, with the needs of rural and urban communities continually at the forefront of the Forces approach to tackling crime.
The Force aim is:
"By working in partnership to bring about safer communities; reduce disorder, crime and the fear of crime; and contribute to the delivery of justice in a way which secures and maintains public confidence."
As individuals and as part of a wider organisation, Devon & Cornwall are responsible for ensuring that they act in the best interests of society as a whole. Improving the safety and well-being of the public underpins all that they do.
They are dedicated to working in the public interest, engaging and listening to their needs and concerns. They work to ensure that the public feels valued and engaged, which helps build confidence in the police service.
