    Currently looking to move away & I used the above site to show the missus the comparative analysis of our area compared to where I would like to move.

    901 crimes in April in my area compared to 401 for my suggestion. Not too much difference you may say, but if you compare per person per sq mile it's huge!

    I compared Rochdale to Bournemouth!

    What's your area like?

    About 50k Rochdale East compared to 183k for Bournemouth..

    2675 crimes recorded for all 3 areas combined in Rochdale. Total population <240k at last census IIRC.

    Interesting to not only see the amount of crimes, but the follow up and prosecution rates are in my area laughable.

    In April 18 crimes were reported in my neighbourhood. I wonder if it means verified, not just reported

    The difference is the size of the ward areas which vary massively from force to force, some might have 25 to 30,000 people others might have just a couple of thousand

    I would imagine that they would be 'verified' or they wouldn't be a crime if not.
    There will be far more reported ones.

    Could have a fairly simple explanation, for instance...
    In a bar, male grabs his ex-partners bottom, she reports it. During investigation they get back together and she drops the complaint.
    It still happened, so needed to be investigated and finalised.

    19 in my immediate area (3 villages) but only 7 in our village itself, all of it was Antisocial behaviour.

    The police could halve the crime rate here if they would just confiscate the dirt bike that the kids use to bomb around our local woods.

    Rochdale is becoming a no go zone. I worked on a gas pipeline last year that traversed through a street and we were basically treated like outsiders. Spat on, vans blocked in or damaged, we weren't allowed in the shop. The street was dirty with rubbish just thrown out the door. How people live like that is beyond me.

    52 here in our London suburb. Population 25k.

    So 20 per 10k population per month / 240 per year.

    In April 2015 70 crimes were reported in this neighbourhood. Zero in and around my cul-de-sac, 6 slightly further afield.

    The thing is, 1 murder is much worse than 100 ASBOs! So you need to drill down and see what the crimes were to get a feel for the area.

    How do you find that out?
