The Police API allows you to retrieve information about neighbourhood areas in all 43 English & Welsh police forces and for the Police Service of Northern Ireland. All forces are required to keep this data accurate and up to date, so the API provides a rich and definitive data source for information such as:
- Neighbourhood team members
- Upcoming events
- Crime statistics at both street and neighbourhood level
- Outcomes for street level crimes - not available for the Police Service of Northern Ireland
- Nearest police stations
The API is implemented as a standard JSON REST web service using HTTP GET requests.
