Torrington Police cover a large rural area including and surrounding Torrington. The rural area encompasses 28 rural parishes and over 250 square miles of the Torridge area including Alverdiscott, High Bickington, Winkleigh, Dolton, Merton, Petrockstow, Shebbear, Newton St Petrock, Frithelstock, Weare Giffard and all parishes between and within. A number of well established villages lie within this area but in the main it is sparsely populated.

The main industry for the area is of course agricultural or services connected with it. The pressures on villages to grow are easy to see with developments in many villages currently being built. With this increased population comes greater demand on resources and services. With an increasing number of people prepared to commute from their homes large distances in order to secure work the pressures on our countryside and village life has never been greater.

The rural area is served by a number of nearby towns but locally by Torrington. Based at the Police Station are the neighbourhood beat team detailed above. 

Currently the recorded crime in the area is one of the lowest in the Country, serious crime and disorder are very rare. It is understood from consultation that the fear of crime remains much higher than the actual risk of becoming the victim of crime. It is the ongoing aim and intention of The Team to continue to reduce crime and the perceptions that lead to the fear of it.
