The crime data is currently available for download for free from However, with approx 500,000 crimes released per month (9 million records to date) it is very difficult to group these by UK Postcode, Sector, District, Area, and Lower Super Output Area. This API allows you to query crime totals and crime rates of 11 crime categories (Anti-Social Behaviour, Burglary, Robbery, Vehicle crime, Violent crime, Shoplifting, Other Theft, Drugs, Criminal Damage with Arson, Public Disorder with Weapons, and Other crime). The crime rate is calculated using the latest population estimates for Lower Super Output Area, and are more applicable than the current UK Police's crime rate based on Neighbourhood population (which may span multiple post codes). This API is particularly suited towards regional analysis of crime at the local level e.g. comparing postcodes, sectors and districts. Look for other OpenDataDeveloper datasets available.
