I live in the same road as a police stations/police headquarters/police call centres – will that inflate registered crime to my street?

Yes – if that Police Station is having a lot of crimes mapped to the Police Station because their location is unknown or otherwise. We think that’s a problem. We are seeking clarification on the precise coordinates of all the Police stations/hqs and call centres so that we can account for that. We also want to know how many of the crimes (and where and when and what kind) are registered in this way. South Wales Police for example don’t list any coordinates from the api for their Police Stations.
