Police website praised by York MP

Julian Sturdy

12:00am 5th February 2012

Julian Sturdy, Member of Parliament for York Outer, has welcomed the upgrade to the website police.uk introduced on 30th January 2012.

These improvements will give the public an even more detailed picture of crime and anti-social behavior across York.

The website now includes incidents of crime and antisocial behaviour recorded at all train stations and railway networks.

Soon incidents occurring at or near significant local sites like shopping areas, nightclubs, parks, airports, universities, car parks and hospitals will be added too.

In addition, the website now has more specific detail on the precise location of incidents - while still protecting anonymity.

From May this year police.uk will show the action taken by the police or the justice outcome after a crime.

Commenting Mr Sturdy said:

"Police.uk gives residents across our great city vital information on just what crime and anti-social behaviour is happening right on their street."

"In the year since its launch the website has received an astonishing 453 million hits and this upgrade will make even more detail available."

"I'm pleased the Home Office is listening to the public's demand for even more information on crime in their neighbourhood. By making such information available I truly believe that public faith and confidence in the work of local police officers will increase."
