The new Crime mapping comes live today. Type in West Finchley and you get the overal crimes in the area. 92 in November and 88 in December – much more than Finchley Church End which is 60 in November and 62 in December.
If you type in Finchley Church End you, unfortunately, get Hendon Church End. I have let them know about this so I guess it will eventually be fixed.
If you live in Finchley Church End, then you need to just type in Finchley. Then press the – button, top left, once to get the overall figures . However, if you know the postcode of the area you want to examine, you can just type that in.
If you want to see a complete breakdown of the crimes, click on the “Text button along the top of your screen towards the right and a screen will open giving you a lot of useful information.
