Access key crime and policing information, raise issues or take an active role in tackling crime and antisocial behaviour.
The crime and local policing information site (new window) was developed to provide the public with access to key crime and policing information, in a way they want and in a way that allows them to raise issues or take an active role in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.
The site provides helpful information about crime and policing in your area. It has also been designed to help police force staff promote street level crime maps. It is updated monthly with new data released from police forces.
Using the crime and local policing information website
When you input your postcode, town, village or street, you’ll have instant access to street-level crime maps and data, as well as details of your local policing team and beat meetings.
You will also be able to find out how the police are tackling the problems in your area, and what you can do to help. The street-level crime map identifies types of crime including:
- total crime
- vehicle crime
- antisocial behaviour
- other crime
Why create street-level maps?
Publishing crime and local policing iInformation on national maps provides a greater level of transparency about what crimes happen, where and when. This is the first phase in a longer programme, which could see other crime and justice information (like court progress and convictions) being published alongside the maps.
The 'Policing in the 21st Century' consultation set out the coalition government’s plan to give the public access to key crime and policing information in a way they want and in a way that allows them to raise issues or take an active role in tackling crime and antisocial behaviour.
We’ve worked closely with the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) and with all 43 police forces in England and Wales to develop the Crime and Local Policing Information site (new window).
