Signup to the UKCrimeStats.com API - we think it's fair to say it is quite the best for crime data out there. It is ideal for proptech, the insurance and security industry to build their own customer or private facing applications. We aim to tell you exactly what you need to know, as easily and as quickly as possible.
Only with the UKCrimeStats.com API can you;
1) Get an individual postcode level ranking of 1-100 based on crimes/type of crime within a selected radius by total crime/crime rate over the latest 12 months across 1.6 million postcodes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
2) Do the same across the calendar years, 2019, 2020, 2021.
3) Get crime totals/crime rate/crime per hectare for a selected time period for all known geographies - wards, constituencies, neighbourhoods, councils, parish, postcode sector, postcode district, lower layer super output area etc.
So what does it cost?
You can create a free account with a limit of 500 calls but thereafter we have some very reasonable scaling prices depending on volume.

API Pricing FAQ
What counts as a 'call'?
A call/url hit on our server that extracts data counts as one call. We will keep track of how many you make. After you sign up you can log in to your account at ukcrimestats.com/api/account.php to see how many calls you have left.
Are there any limits during the free trial?
No, it's just 500 free calls. This is the industry standard deemed sufficient for integration and testing purposes. After you have used up your 500 calls, you will be invited to start your paid plan, if you want to continue.
Do I have to buy particular geographical areas?
No - UKCrimeStats is making available all available geographies that have crime data.
What areas are covered?
As with our website, we have geospatially located data covering all of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland is limited to annual crime totals in Datazones.
What types of payment do you accept?
You can use either GoCardless - a direct debit from your chosen account - or PayPal. If you want to pay annually via a bank transfer following an invoice, we can arrange that for you too.
Can I change my plan at a later time?
Yes! We know that requirements change all the time. Just let us know and we will arrange it for you.
Can I buy an annual subscription?
Yes, once you select a plan on the signup page you can choose to pay annually in advance and get a year's subscription with a 10% discount.
