Map App

This application uses the Google Maps API and the police.uk API to create an interactive map which shows police stop/search data.

Documentation on both these APIs are available here:

https://data.police.uk/docs/

https://developers.google.com/maps/

By default the police API returns the most recent dataset, which seems to be about 3 months behind.

Note that not all police forces publish their stop/search data.

Future features

  • ability to search by date
  • ability to search by specific features such as ethnicity, object of search etc.
  • heatmap
