Mapping Out Crime

Filed under: Crime News — admin @ 12:09 pm

How good are your local police? Want to find out what crimes are taking place in your home town? Well an internet system has now come online which will allow anyone to see just how good their local policing authorities are. Developed by the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) the crime map will show you what the crime is like in 43 policing areas in England and Wales. Want to go out shopping in a different part of town no problem just type in the post code and instantly you have at your fingertips all of the crime statistics for that particular area, again with more and more people taking up ‘power walking’ or jogging, again this system will show you how safe the particular area has been.

Originally introduced to give people more confidence in their local constabularies, it can also be used to see how a particular area is performing, this will be especially beneficial to people who are looking to move house. Some institutes are condemning this system saying that it will wipe thousands of pounds of the housing market as potential house buyers can see how much crime is in their new area.

The new web site was launched on Tuesday 20th of October and on its first day people in London, Yorkshire and Manchester were unable to log on due to high demand. The maps can be viewed at: www.maps.police.co.uk
