Violent crime was up 37% in the last year. Police say it's mainly due to a change in how offences are recorded.
Bournemouth Couple Jailed For Child Abuse
A husband and wife from Bournemouth have been jailed for abusing a child and taking photos as they did it.
48 year old Daniel Cruise and 43 year old Barbara Cruise appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court earlier this week.
Mrs.Cruise - who used to be a teaching assistant - has been given two years in prison and is banned from working with children.
Her husband was handed four years and four months in prison and will be on the sex offenders register for life.
The court heard how the pair locked themselves in their bedroom and Mr. Cruise tried to destroy evidence when police visited their home in Luckham Road, Bournemouth.
But officers found thousands of downloaded images of children on his computer and another picture taken by him showed his wife abusing a girl, now aged seven.
The offences took place between January 2009 and August 2010.
