POLICE LAUNCH ONLINE NEIGHBOURHOOD CRIME MAPS
There appear to be some bugs in the system. I had an incompatibility with Adobe report. Quite how these maps are going to make the streets safer, I really havent a clue, but I suppose it’s cheaper than investing in real police officers!
http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/ia/atlas.html is the URL for the master map. It doesnt go down to neighbourhoods, just to Basic Command Units. City was the lowest level I was able to reach locally, but maybe its too sophisticated for me. I was expecting something a little more like one of those house price maps. Silly me!
