Answer for London Datastore

Answered By: 
The Mayor

It was agreed in May 2012 that crime data on the London Datastore would be released to coincide with the publication of the 'MOPAC Monthly Report to the Police and Crime Committee', which contains the same data. The data in this report is 2 months in arrears and therefore replicated on the London Datastore. However, there was no Police and Crime Committee meeting scheduled in the month of August. Under a new agreement with the MOPAC, data will now be provided 1 month in arrears, both online and on Datastore.
