Violent crime was up 37% in the last year. Police say it's mainly due to a change in how offences are recorded.

A man's indecently exposed himself in the Alum Chine area of Bournemouth – with an e-fit of the offender being released.
Police received a report that a man had indecently exposed himself to a member of the public along Rosemount Road at around 6.20pm on Thursday, 20 January 2011.
Detective Sergeant Ian Fletcher, of Bournemouth Public Protection Unit, said:
“Following further enquiries, I am now able to release an e-fit of the offender.
“I would urge anyone who recognises this man to contact me as soon as possible.”
The offender is aged in his early to mid-twenties, of a slim build, with a dark skin complexion and short dark curly hair.
At the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey T-shirt. The T-shirt had a gold arrow piercing through a large red shiny heart printed on the front. His belt had a distinct silver skull and crossbones buckle.
He was also wearing a silver chain with a silver cross attached and distinctive diamond-studded earrings in both ears.
DS Fletcher continued:
“It may be that there were a number of people in this area at the time of this incident and it‘s possible that someone, perhaps several people, will have seen or heard something that will help me with my investigation.
“Anyone with any information should contact me – in confidence – at the earliest opportunity.”
