Check Crime In My Area

Police Generated Crime Map

Whether you’re planning on buying a new property and want to suss out the area, or you
are just interested in knowing more about your street, a quick postcode search using the
Police.uk crime map is the easiest way to see what’s going on around you.

The Police.uk website allows anyone in the UK to search for information on crime in their area
simply by entering a street name or postcode. The interactive maps online pinpoint streets where
reported crimes have taken place, but not specific properties, in order to protect victims from
being identified.

Crime information is broken down into six categories – burglary, robbery, vehicle crime, violence,
other crime and anti-social behaviour, with sex crimes and  theft and shoplifting being in the
‘other’ category, again to help protect victims.

Users can also see whether their location has a higher than average crime level and compare it
to other places across the country, and see whether crime has risen or fallen over the years.

Local police appeals and details of police community meetings are published alongside the
maps.
