Online crime maps ‘putting power in the hands of the people’ scream the headlines.
They would appear to be accurate – going onto the fancy new police web site HERE today I tapped in Brandon, Suffolk to see what crime was like these days in an area previously famed only for public defaecation
Hmmn. It seems Brandon is no longer covered by any police force.
Same result for the highly popular muggers paradise known as the Bus Station in Liverpool 12.
This new web site will be very popular with those burglars with a strange reluctance to spend time housed, clothed and fed by Her Majesty and will indeed put power in their hands. Can we expect an app shortly so that they can check up on police coverage on their stolen Blackberries?
