    I wish there was a "thumbs up" emoji I could use for this thread. :)

    The crime stats for small streets are usually cumulative for a few streets, check nearby streets too.

    If there is a childrens home (ie one house with 1 or 2 kids in care or just over the care age but being supported) then the stat could be right. They can generate a crime wave easily because staff have to report everything they do and say, sometimes true, sometimes not.

    If you look at the map view you can zoom in to see incidents on each street. The longer streets have incidents shown in different places. Often the same type of incident again and again. I don't know if it refers to the actual house or within a few houses. The street that concerns me has only three houses.

  • I don't think that these websites would be able to be that specific about location because it might identify victims.

    Yeah, it's not just the road, it looks like an area (likely the first half of the postcode plus the following number). Just tried my own postcode and then one of a business six streets away, the numbers are the same. A road with a different first number in the second half of the postcode comes up different
