Met Complaints


Beginnings of a Met Complaints mobile web application was put in place, in the same style as the Asborometer application. An example page can be viewed here:

A principal components statistical analysis was also performed on the borough level Met complaints data. Results were displayed during the hackday presentation.

Ideas for taking this project forward

Finish the mobile web application and launch it on the iphone app store.

Estimated costs for taking this project forward

Surprisingly little.

About the data used for this project

Several phone calls with the IPCC press office and Metropolitan Police FOI office were required to track down a PDF of statistics on complaints against the Metropolitan Police. Data was extracted from the PDF (copy-protection on the PDF had to be cracked). This data gathering process highlighted that not all government data is yet on Locking data away in PDFs makes data reuse difficult, but not impossible.
