What is a Crime ID number, how is it assigned and can I search on it?

We have assigned each individual crime since the start of the database in December 2010 an individual number. So as crimes in England and Wales are growing by 500,000 a month, after the first 3 months, we have 1.5 million crime id numbers on our database. You can also search for them by number in the search box, 1-1,500,000 plus. Each crime has it’s own page, limited description, position on the map and url address so you can refer incoming links to it.

N.B. Please note, these Crime ID numbers are not the same as the official police crime id numbers.
