About the force

Devon & Cornwall Police covers the largest geographical police area in England, extending 180 miles from the Dorset and Somerset borders in the east to the Isles of Scilly in the west.

To give some impression of the scale of the area, police headquarters in Exeter is actually nearer to London than the furthest extremity of the Force.

Policing an area of this size offers many challenges, with the needs of both rural and urban communities continually at the forefront of the Force's 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."
