POlice.uk launched today

Recommended Posts

more mumbo jumbo looking at crime when little is done to look at the causes of crime. but it gets people talking.

and can come in handy when some of you nutters organise your street fights

New online crime maps for England and Wales have been launched, allowing users to see which offences have been reported in their local streets.

Home Secretary Theresa May said people had lost confidence in national crime figures, and the maps would give real facts and make police more accountable.

The public can search for information on crime and anti-social behaviour by entering a street name or postcode.

The website provides more detail, down to street-level, than existing online crime maps provided by forces in England and Wales.

you get an email address of your local officers and a mobile phone.

Millions jam street-level crime map website

A new crime-mapping website for England and Wales is experiencing a "temporary problem" as millions of people log on every hour, the Home Office has said.

Hundreds have contacted the BBC website to report problems accessing the site as officials worked to fix the glitch.

The Home Office said www.police.uk was receiving up to five million hits an hour, or some 75,000 a minute.

The site allows you to see the offences reported in your local street by entering a street name or postcode.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the maps would give real facts on crime and anti-social behaviour and make police more accountable.

Met Police Crime Map - And the point is...?

http://maps.met.police.uk/

So which areas have the lowest or highest crime rates?

I can see insurance rates and mortagages going up and house values going down... :unsure:

Plus some "unscrupulous" people may see certain areas as easy pickings...

insurance already incorporates sutin like this so that aint much of a suprise

but yea, if ur buyin a house jus enter the postcode n see the crime

good thing imo, no one wants to live in a shithole

but then again the places will just keep gettin worse n worse, so maybe the gov could use this tio pump money into certain communities?

this is one of the most stupid and irresponsible ideas by the new government as yet

what is the point in this data? to scare people and put them in a frenzy

like many have said it will f*ck up house prices in certain neighborhoods and further increase the gap between rich/upmarket and poorer areas.

if this information was only made available to the police and a select few of authorities then i'll understand but how does this help. surely it wont make the police more accountable, if anything they'll become complacent.

not really. a map of this kind in a place like london is a bit useless.

A: as the map is not very detailed at all.

as you said, insurance companies already use more detailed data, and in terms of house prices or where to live, the good postcodes will remain good for house prices, or at least unaffected by these type of maps.

such maps are only good for cities where the social status divide is very apparent, like in US cities, thats where data mapping is useful and has a big impact.
