Anyone can now download street level crime and outcome data in a CSV format. The data is broken down by police force and at Lower Super Output Area level (2011 areas).  The data includes eastings and northings so that anyone can map the data themselves on a Geographical Information System and aggregate the crimes up to LSOA level. Historic data is also available dating back to December 2010.
