SafeStats Local

SafeStats Local is a subscription-based product that allows individual boroughs to combine their own local-level datasets (for example CCTV incidents, Parks police, Environmental issues) with multi-agency data held by SafeStats Data (for example the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London).

This will provide boroughs with a tailored resource to analyse their own local-level crime and disorder. This product has been created for all London boroughs, and many of them are already seeing the benefits of its local level data visualisation.

SafeStats Data uses interactive maps, charts and tables to visualise the data held in SafeStats Data. Boroughs can then upload their specific data to analyse alongside.

You can:

  • select and change your choice of data source, crime and incident category, geographical level, temporal options
  • save your searches for future use
  • add ‘points of interest’ and individual addresses as a map overlay
  • download data from your search into a spreadsheet

Find out if your borough is already signed up or sign up today by contacting us at: [email protected].

SafeStats Dashboards

We produce and maintain several free and easy to use dashboards. These dashboards visualise our own data as well as data from other agencies, such as the Office for National Statistics.

This makes it much easier for you to interact with the data and get a quick impression of counts, rates, trends, and changes for geographic areas and categories.

For free access to any of the dashboards, please contact us at: 
[email protected].

These dashboards include:

The Multi-Agency Dashboard - a single spreadsheet with all the data held in SafeStats Data. It uses drop-down boxes for time period, borough, agency and crime type. This allows you to make your own combinations of variables and to see trends in line graphs, pie charts and comparison counts.

We make sure that any different names for the same crimes across the different agencies are merged. This gives a clearer view of crime and disorder across London. This dashboard is updated monthly and is hosted within SafeStats Data.

The Ambulance Data Dashboard - a single spreadsheet has the same format as the Multi-Agency dashboard above, but only focuses on the London Ambulance Service Violent Incidents and Injuries data.

You can use the extra data on gender and age to consider aspects such as violence against women and youth violence. This dashboard is updated monthly and is hosted within SafeStats Data.

London Crime - A National Picture - allows you to view a rolling 12 month ONS data feed for changes in crime for the Metropolitan Police Service. You can then compare it with the performance of England and Wales as a whole.

It also includes MPS rates and their percentage share for England and Wales, key performing boroughs, and data from the previous update. This dashboard is updated quarterly and is hosted publicly on the London Datastore.
