People will now for the first time be able to see what crime and antisocial behaviour has happened on their streets, access details about their neighbourhood policing team and find out about regular beat meetings all at the touch of a button, the Home Secretary announced today.

Interactive maps which can be accessed on computers and mobile phones will open the door on crime and policing information, allowing people to view crimes including burglary, violence and anti-social behaviour in their areas by doing a simple postcode search.

This transparent new level of crime and local policing information will ensure people can tell forces what their concerns about crime and disorder are, find out information about crime in their area and hold police to account for how well they are dealing with the issues that matter locally

The website can be accessed from: www.police.uk
