A number of changes have been made to recorded crime in response to the two reviews of crime statistics. One such change is that the term 'violent crime' is no longer used in connection with the recorded crime statistics and we now provide figures for violence against the person.
Violence against the person figures for the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly basic command unit, from 2006-07 to 2007-08, are given in the table. These data include a percentage change between the two years and a rate per 1,000 population for 2007-08.
