Map of street level crime incidents in May 2020
Police data is divided in Policing Neighbourhoods. We have taken the 'best fit' neighbourhood that includes South Bents. This map shows if incidents are evenly distributed over the district or if there are hot spots in certain streets or areas.
Where Police data is not specific to an address for privacy reasons, most roads are represented by 1 to 2 markers or clusters. However, this should be enough to ascertain if the road you live in or are thinking of moving to, is a crime hot spot. The only exception could be where there is a large cluster of a single crime category on a street, as this could but not necessarily be related to multiple incidents at one address.
