Brockley crime levels revealed

Crime levels in Brockley are varied, with some places seeing increases and others seeing decreases according to the new national CrimeMapper website.

The site uses police forces' figures to present a real-time view of crime around the country, and enables users to compare different areas. The figures for SE4 are mixed.

The level of crime in Brockley is average compared to other Metropolitan Police areas, but declining - the three-month average fell by 7.8% year-on-year. However the level of burglaries was above average, and rose 34% year-on-year. There was a peak in January and February, and levels have risen again in the last couple of months.
Brockley is also above avarage for robberies, although still at a very low level. Violent crime is above average but has fallen year-on-year.

Figures for Telegraph Hill show a rise in crimes of 11.6% year-on-year. In particular there was a peak in burglaries in July. But there is some good news for residents of the hill - vehicle crime is below average compared to other Metropolitan Police areas.

In Crofton Park, burglaries, violent crimes and anti-social behaviour incidents all rose year-on-year, but were still average in comparison to other Met Police areas.

Crime in Ladywell was up year-on-year, particularly burglary and robbery. But levels were still average compared to other Met Police areas.

NB. The website is flooded with users at the moment, so you may find it is running very slowly or unreliably for a while.

I introduce instant death to the person or persons unknown who lets their mutt crap on the paths. been running three times over the last week, stepped in sh*t each and every time.

Think I may follow them home and curl one out on their door step.

Oh, that's what that was all about? I could have sworn they wanted my *poo*.

"curl one out". I love the descriptive use of the verb "to curl" in this context. Poetic.

Hi, we are forming a neighborhood watch for the houses between the corner of Tressillian Crescent and Harefield Road. We're having a meeting on 10th November at 7.30 and the community police will be there. if you want to come, please email me at sydney@webplay.org and I'll send you more details.

What do Neighbourhood Watches achieve other than a rotting sticker on the window of a door?

Monkey Boy - I actually threatened to follow a woman home and crap in her front garden after i spotted her happily letting her dog crap outside our house! She seemed most offended.

I've done the same with people feeding pigeons mind you - they crap on me, I crap on you!

monkeyboy said...

have to be quick though, those pigeons can shift. Oh, and there are the beaks to contend with.

You may find it better to use the old Met police crime mapping site at maps.met.police.uk. This has a tab marked 'text' - which has crime data for the latest month.

Helpfully this data is disaggregated by type of crime and by 'super output area'. This is the source of data for our recent Focus leaflets on crime in Crofton Park.

(NB 'our' because I'm the partner of Tam Langley, Lib Dem prospective MP for Lewisham Deptford)

could we set up a new game? spot the policemen/women?

Only time I ever see them is speeding round lewisham way shardeloes road light flashing noise blaring. Never once do I see them pounding the streets or dealing with the dope dealers on lewisham way.

I disagree anon @15.15, I frequently see police offices (and community support officers) walking around Brockley/Telegraph Hill, in fact I have been surprised & reassured by how frequently I see them out and about.

PCSOs don't count, as nice as they are, they're pretty impotent in what they can do. I don;t feel safer in seeing them stand around at new cross station turnstiles. I'd rather have a few more police officers than people who are unable to make arrests.
