EVER wondered what crimes are being committed near you?

We’ve put together an interactive map of every single crime in oxford during August, street by street.

Using data from Police.UK we can reveal that 1,448 crimes in Oxford areas were reported to Thames Valley Police in August.

TVP publishes its figures every month and the data shows what the crime is, where it was reported and what stage of the investigation it is in.

Oxford is divided into seven main wards by police, these are: Oxford central, Barton and Risinghurst, Cowley, East Oxford (which covers Iffley Road), North Oxford (which covers Summertown, Cuttselowe and Wolvercote) and South East Oxford (which covers Blackbird Leys, Iffley and Littlemore).

What stage of the investigations are the crimes at?

  • 380 crimes out of the 1,448 reported were closed when no suspect was identified
  • 137 crimes were closed because police officers were unable to prosecute a suspect

  • 50 crimes are awaiting court outcomes
  • In two crimes (one for violence and sexual offences and another for public order) action will be taken by another organisation

Oxford Mail:

Last year we revealed how the majority of crime in Oxford, around 70 per cent, was closed with no further action.

Police will close an investigation with no further action when: more investigation is deemed not ‘in the public interest’, the investigation is completed because no suspect was found or police were simply unable to prosecute somebody.
