Crime mapping advice Crime mapping advice

The Information Commissioner has issued advice on crime mapping. This will help organisations publishing crime maps to balance the transparency benefits of doing this with the privacy risks it can pose.

This advice is particularly topical, given the number of current initiatives that are intended to increase the availability of geographical data about crime and other issues.

You can access this advice and related guidance on our information sharing topic guide page.
