Revisions coming through – Hampshire Constabulary

An eagle-eyed customer of ours noticed something was adrift with Hampshire Constabulary’s ASB monthly totals from April 2018 – basically, they appear to be several times lower than before. I got in touch directly with Hampshire and they agreed. As soon as the revisions are posted to data.police.uk – we can go back and revise.

It’s a good example of why it’s important to make crime data open – because mistakes happen and errors are more likely to be seen and corrected when the data is visible.
