Crimemapper is a website which displays local crime information, allowing members of the public to see what is happening in their local area with regards to crime data and anti-social behaviour statistics at a street level.
What crime is displayed on the maps?
The website will display:
- vehicle crime,
- other crime,
- anti-social behaviour.
What do the dots on the map represent?
Each dot marks the approximate location of where a crime or incidence of anti-social behaviour has occurred. To ensure privacy of individuals, incidents of crime or anti-social behaviour are mapped to a point on, or near, the street where it happened, rather than the actual location itself - this is referred to as a ‘safe location’.
Users of the Crimemapper website should be aware when viewing street-level maps, the data published on the website does not necessarily portray exact locations of where the crime occurred.
Members of the public should also be aware that large public spaces such as shopping centres and hospitals do not have crimes allocated to them but they are re-located to the nearest street with 12 or more postal addresses.
How current is the data presented on the maps?
The data and maps are updated monthly with statistics from the previous month. You should expect to see new statistics on the site by the 25th of every month.
