Crime hotspot website upgraded

The www.police.uk website which enables people to see statistics and locations of reported crimes in England Wales, down to street-level, has been upgraded to cover specific public places. Home Secretary Theresa May said revealing details of crime and disorder would make police more accountable.

Policing minister Nick Herbert said www.police.uk had received 453 million visits since its launch a year ago. "Our crime mapping website is continuing to evolve and revolutionise the way people access crime data," he said.

The public appetite was clear and the government had listened to public demand for even more detailed information, he added.

Mrs May said the website would show crimes which happened "near a range of public places" including railway stations, nightclubs, parks and shopping areas.

"Since October, the public have been able to use the police.uk website to see how their force performs in a range of areas like crime rates, quality of service and victim satisfaction," she said.

"By May this year, crime maps will show the public what happens after a crime has occurred - what action the police took and what the criminal justice outcome was."
