Website to see crime levels

People across the country will now be able to see what crime and anti-social behaviour is happening on their streets, thanks to a new police website.

By visiting www.police.uk and typing in a postcode, people can see what crime and anti-social behaviour has happened in their area.

As part of the results, visitors are also given ways to contact their local policing team.

The online map will allow residents to view figures for burglary, robbery, violence, vehicle crime and anti-social behaviour in their area at the touch of a button.

They can get contact phone numbers, details of beat meetings and see what their team is doing to make the area safer.

The site was developed by the National Policing Improvement Agency.
