You can now view the level of crime in your area online.
The police.uk website gives residents access to:
- the latest crime data in their neighbourhood
- ‘justice outcomes’ for crimes previously committed.
The service is managed solely by the Home Office, using information provided by partners in the criminal justice system.
You can also compare crime, anti-social behaviour, and a range of other factors such as finances and workforce numbers for all police forces in England and Wales through the Crime and Policing Comparator website. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) validates and publishes this data, which is submitted by police forces.
