The neighbourhood of Dawlish Rural is comprised of Dawlish Warren, Cockwood, Starcross, Kenton, Mamhead, Ashcombe and Powderham. It has a population of approximately 10,500 in the winter and this increases to more than 70,000 in the summer thanks to the numerous holiday parks (For more information on the local tourist sites and amenities click on Castle and Beach.

The size of the area presents many challenges to providing a visible police presence. It is however a very safe area to live in which can be evidenced by the very low crime figures, and the fact that incidents of serious crime are very low indeed.

The main problem is the lack of facilities for teenagers in the rural villages, which can cause friction between the older and younger residents. There are also regular reports of speeding vehicles passing through the area.
