Crime & Justice

Crime data and neighbourhood policing information from all forces in England and Wales to the Public. This data is what is behind the website.

The Police API allows you to retrieve information about neighbourhood areas in all 43 English & Welsh police forces. All forces are required to keep this data accurate and up to date, so the API provides a rich and definitive data source for crime statistics at both street and neighourhood level.

The API is implemented as a standard XML REST web service using HTTP GET/POST requests.
