Berry Head with Furzeham is the largest ward in the Brixham Policing Sector and is the busiest.  PC Dave Thomas is the Neighbourhood Beat Managers for the patch and are supported by PCSO's Karl Copik and Abi Seaman.

Berry Head with Furzeham ward includes Brixham Community College, Furzeham Primary School, Berry Head Country Park and the town centre.  Tradionally, in the run up to Christmas, shoplifting increases.  To combat this, Operation Action is now in full swing with high visibility foot patrols and plain clothes foot patrols to deter and apprehend offenders.

The town centre is the main topic of this patch with continued rumours and failed plans to re-develop the car park.  Tesco recently withdrew plans to build a new superstore in the current Bank Lane car park which involved the whole regeneration of the twon square and bus stop.  Similarly, the site of the former Pontins Holiday Camp at Wall Park is likely to become housing in the not too distant future.

The site of special scientific interest that is Berry Head is famous nationwide not only for its involvment in the Napoleonic Wars but also for its wildlife.  Likewise, the famous harbour is now the busiest fishing port in the country and Brixham's strong fishing heritage is very apparent. 

The town centre holds annual events such as the Trawler Race, BrixFest, Pirate Festival, Christmas Lantern Parade, Fishstock, (Cowtown) Carnival and many more all provide a fun challenge for the local officers.
