  • Statistics on crime rate are often saddled with errors. Crime statisticians tend to include only the crimes known or reported to the police or reported by the victim. The vast amount of crimes often go unreported. Therefore, be careful when trying to rely on crime statistics within an area such as Bakewell.

  • DOH ! joeanums answer demonstrates a laughable lack of logical thought. Unless he / she is suggesting that especially in Bakewell and other areas of low crime incidence that the low figures are a result of a lack of reporting peculiar to those areas, then providing unreported crime is similar in every other area, high or low, then the crime figures, no matter how imperfect can be relied upon as a useful indicator of the character of the area. In fact, it is in areas of very high crime that the incidence is of unreported crime is likely to be higher. In those areas the police are overwhelmed with work and crimes go unreported on the basis of ' Why bother? Nothing will get done'. On the other hand, the police are under employed in areas like Bakewell, so they take a more vigorous and proactive attitude to even minor crimes, so reporting is much more likely to occur. For 25 years I have lived in a town with a very high crime rate and have suffered no crime. So, even a high crime rate does not necessarily mean you need be fearful.

  • Wideboards answer is based on opinion and cannot withstand any critical examination, and does not show any legal understanding of crime. I think he or she should study how crime statistics are gathered before jumping into any silly conclusions. He or she should start by visiting the British Crime Survey which provides most of the figures used by police in estimating crime rate for any given area.
