The Government have committed to making consistent, monthly, local information on crime available throughout the country. This will include data on crime and community safety issues but will also comprise other kinds of information of use to the local community, such as information about what local agencies are doing to tackle their community safety priorities.

The Home Office is working with ACPO, the APA and other stakeholders to identify how best this can be achieved.
