Find out what happens to crime in your area
« on: 01 Jun 2012 08:52AM »
People can now find out online what action police have taken after a crime was committed in their neighbourhood, with new data published on the government's crime mapping website  http://www.police.uk/

The site will also start to show whether offenders went to court, increasing transparency in the criminal justice system.

Minister for Policing and Criminal Justice Nick Herbert said: 'The public don't just want to know what crime is being committed in their local area; they want to know what is being done about it.  Did the person who smashed a shop window get arrested?  Has the person stealing from the local newsagents been arrested and sent to court?

'The Police.uk site is helping to revolutionise the way the police and the wider criminal justice system are held to account by making this information available at the touch of a button.  It will help drive up performance and allow the public to make informed choices in the upcoming elections for Police and Crime Commissioners.’

Hi AO - just want to say how much I appreciate your posts and information.  Not posting much the last couple of years as hors de combat but I look in every day.
