HAREFIELD'S crime hotspots have been revealed by a controversial new police website.
The government-backed Police.uk website was launched last week - but crashed when five million users an hour logged on.
The website lists, by type and location, all reported crimes for December.
However the borough was beset by snow that month, and youths throwing snowballs at cars is likely to have skewed reports of anti-social behaviour.
Unsurprisingly, Harefield High Street is where most crimes took place, with 16 in total, 13 classed as anti-social behaviour. Harefield's worst residential street is Fallowfield Close, with nine crimes, six being anti-social behaviour.
Other active areas include New Park Road, with five offences, including two instances of vehicle crime, and St Mary's Close, with four crimes logged, including one violent offence.
Overall in Harefield there were 78 crimes in December, but no burglaries and no robberies. They were made up of 40 reports of anti-social behaviour, 15 counts of vehicle crime and 19 other offences.
Paul Stone, chairman of Harefield's Neighbourhood Watch, said: "The website has its pros and cons - you could argue we know too much nowadays.
"I think insurance companies might jump on it and use it to raise prices in certain areas. It's a bit of a PR job too.
"It is positive news that in Harefield the burglary figures are non-existent."
The website has been criticised for 'inaccuracy' and the effect it could have on house prices. Police directed the Gazette to the Home Office, which in turn directed us back to the police.
