About crime APIs

Before moving to a new neighborhood, people understandably want to know what the crime rate is like to feel confident that the location is safe.

Thanks to a crime API like Crime Data, CrimeoMeter, or World Cities, app developers will have access to enormous swaths of crime data for all kinds of countries, cities, neighborhoods, and other geographical locations, both large and small.

RapidAPI is an excellent repository where app developers can find the crime map APIs and other crime database software that they can need to build the perfect app with crime data

What are crime data APIs?

In general, an API is a template of coding instructions that is meant to be integrated into third-party apps or other software. Once integrated, the third-party app can access some pre-established parts of the app to which the API corresponds — like a database, a set of data analytics tools, and so on. Thus a crime API is an API that allows some app to access statistics for crime per geolocation in a database. Users can look up individuals and their criminal records or look at any given location and see what its crime rate is like.

How do crime information APIs work?

A crime map API works by taking crime information for various geographical areas and creating maps for them which vary depending on the type, severity, and frequency of the crimes to be found there. The information is then outputted in a format like JSON, which a third-party app can read and access.

Who are crime information APIs for?

Crime information APIs are meant primarily for app developers who seek to build apps that will inform users about crime rates in various areas and allow them to take the necessary measures to stay safe. By extension, therefore, such APIs are tremendously useful to the crime data app users.

Why are crime rate APIs important?

Crime data app developers’ work by linking their apps to extensive and accurate crime databases. As a result, crime rate APIs can play a crucial role in keeping people safe by making informed decisions before traveling to a certain location.

What can you expect from crime APIs?

Since crime APIs make crime app developers’ work so much easier, people can expect crime data APIs to lead to the proliferation of more and better crime data apps over time.

Are there examples of free crime information APIS?

Yes. Rapid APIs has a few different free crime map APIs. One of these is Walk Score, an API that can link third-party apps to the Walk Score app. This is a useful app that gives a Walk Score to various cities, neighborhoods, or other locales which indicates how safe it is for people to walk there. UK-based developers should also check out the UK Open Police API, which can give apps access to the British police’s crime database. JailBase and NFLArrest are other APIs that allow users to look up individuals and their criminal histories.
