Humberside Police have a local online crime mapping service available . Information relating to Hedon can be found at
Of interest are the following statistics relating to the Ward ‘compared to this time last year’:
- ALL CRIME has decreased by 41.8%
- Robbery has decreased by 100%
- Anti Social Behaviour has decreased by 36.7%
- Violence has decreased by 12%
- Burglary has increased by 53.8%
- Vehicle crime has increased by 61.5%
I think such online information is extremely valuable – particularly when local residents are being asked their opinions about what local priorities are or should be.
Despite local ONLINE police services improving dramatically – perhaps they still fall some way short of information available to US citizens as this from Oakland Crimespotting demonstrates?
