THE POLICE force’s online crime map has been updated to show offences committed in January.

Last month we reported on the launch of Police.uk, a street-by-street searchable database of offences committed across the country which was welcomed by Lincolnshire Police as a step forward for “accountability and transparency”.

This week the site was updated to include information for crimes committed in January, with a new “crime rate” statistic to show the number of crimes per 1,000 people in each neighbourhood area.

In Spalding there were 121 crimes, with a crime rate of 10.55. In Holbeach there were 125 crimes, but its “neighbourhood” area is slightly wider, meaning it has a lower crime rate of 10.46 per 1,000 people.

The Long Sutton and Sutton Bridge figures were both 101, a rate of 6.79. Donington and Pinchbeck both saw 64 crimes, a rate of 4.9, and there were 45 incidents in Crowland, giving it a rate of 7.04.

All the areas are classed as having an average level of crime, putting them in the middle 68 per cent of areas.
