The Metropolitan Police have launched a new crime mapping tool which allows you to see which neighbourhoods across London suffer from the worst crime rates.
The website uses colours to illustrate crime hotspots, and at the moment is measuring only burglary, robbery and vehicle crime. The website says that crime in the borough of Greenwich is average. Zooming ino a ward by ward basis, Greenwich West has average crime, with there actually being only 28 crimes of this type in July 08 compared to June 08. The Peninsula ward, on the other hand, has a High crime rate, with 55 reported crimes of this type in June, increasing to 59 in July.
Interesting tool or pointless gimmick? Take a look yourself and the come back and post a comment with what you think of it.
