David Ruffley MP welcomes upgrade to the police.uk website

Friday, 17 February, 2012

David Ruffley MP welcomes the upgrade to the website police.uk introduced on 30 January 2012. These improvements give the public an even more detailed picture of crime and anti-social behavior in Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and surrounding villages.

David Ruffley said: 'The website now includes incidents of crime and antisocial behaviour recorded at all train stations and railway networks. Soon incidents occurring at or near significant local sites like shopping areas, nightclubs, parks, airports, universities, car parks and hospitals will be added too.

In addition, the website now has more specific detail on the precise location of incidents- while still protecting anonymity.

From May this year police.uk will show the action taken by the police or the justice outcome after a crime.

Police.uk gives everyone in Bury St Edmunds information on just what crime and anti-social behaviour is happening right on their street.

In the year since its launch the website has received an astonishing 453 million hits and this upgrade will make even more detail available.

I'm pleased the Home Office is listening to the public's demand for even more information on crime in their neighbourhood ahead of the election this November of our Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk.'
