Question

What plans does MOPAC and the Metropolitan Police Service have to make recent crime statistics, including offences recorded as "knife crime", more available for public consumption - rather than just yearly London-wide figures?

Answer for Availability of data

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime and I are keen that as much data as possible is made available by MOPAC via the continued publication of our data tools and dashboards.

This will allow users to look at the priorities over time, the areas affected and comparisons across London. The data in this will be both at a rolling year and monthly level and, following the recent launch of the Mayor's knife crime strategy, knife crime is one of the areas of data that will be made available.
