Each month our local Police Team provides data about their activities in Darvel to the Darvel & District Community Council (DDCC).

Police activities are reported in 4 community priority categories. In looking at this data it should be noted that police activity can take many forms including a caution and an arrest. Also, a single incident can involve multiple counts. For example, someone who was acting threateningly and smashed a window would have 2 counts in the Violence & Anti-Social Behaviour Category.

In March 2019 the Police have reported activities including driving a motor vehicle with a provisional licence unsupervised and without insurance, speeding and driving with an expired licence, failure to stop, assault, attempted theft and attempted house breaking.

The Irvine Valley Local Police Team continue to carry out regular patrols of the Darvel and Priestland area. Cycle patrols have been carried out throughout the Irvine Valley which has seen a marked decrease in the number of youth disorder calls which police are receiving. Hopefully this will be maintained as we continue to monitor such behaviour and work in conjunction with partners.

Darvel is a safe community with low levels of crime. Data shows that Anti-Social Behaviour remains a priority area to be addressed.
