Better Crime Maps


Crime maps with no maps.

Lets a member of the public see the actual crime in their ward compared with the current priorities set by the safer neighbourhood panel. If they disagree they can contact the panel and ask them to consider change the polices priorities.

This closes the loop with the public giving them a way too enact change locally.

Ideas for taking this project forward

The main hurdle to overcome is collecting the email addresses for each safer neighbourhood panel.
