Northern Ireland Crimes Mapped

The Belfast Telegraph has unveiled an interactive map of crime statistics from Northern Ireland.

Visitors can opt to view crime data by ward for each year from 2001 to the present and search for figures by offence, such as criminal damage, burglary and theft.

According to mad.co.uk, the sponsored map forms part of the Telegraph’s strategy to improve its site’s stickiness.

“We’re confident of the changes to the site and our position as a local news and information source,” said Sam McIlveen, digital publisher at Independent News and Media.
