API Movers and Shakers: Your Weekly API Performance Report

Once again, U.S. Government APIs are not doing so well. FEMA in the US Government Collection was in the Red Zone with a CASC score of 5.72.

The history of policing in the United Kingdom dates back to the early 19th century, but the modern police force was established in 1829 with the creation of the Metropolitan Police Service in London. The service was founded by Sir Robert Peel, who served as the Home Secretary at the time. The police force gradually expanded over the years, with the formation of regional police forces and the consolidation of smaller forces into larger ones.

Today, the UK Police is made up of 43 separate police forces, each responsible for a specific geographic area. The police are responsible for maintaining law and order, preventing and detecting crime, and protecting the public. The organization has faced a range of challenges in recent years, including budget cuts, rising crime rates, and the need to adapt to new technologies and criminal threats. is the official website of the UK Police, providing information on crime and policing in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The website is built on a complex infrastructure that includes a range of APIs designed to support the delivery of data and information to the public. These APIs include:

Police.UK API – provides access to crime data, including the location and types of crimes reported in a given area.

Neighbourhood Policing API – provides information on local policing services, including contact details for local police officers and crime prevention advice.

Street-Level Crime API – provides access to detailed information on individual crimes, including the date and time of the incident, the type of crime, and the outcome of police investigations.

The performance of these APIs is critical to the delivery of accurate and up-to-date information to the public. The UK Police monitors API performance closely and works to optimize performance and minimize downtime.

Security is also a top priority for the UK Police, given the sensitivity of the data and information it handles. The organization has implemented a range of security protocols to protect its data and systems, including encryption, access controls, and regular security audits. However, the UK Police has experienced several high-profile data breaches in recent years, including incidents in which personal data and information on criminal investigations was compromised.

The UK Police has also experienced downtime on occasion, often due to technical issues or system upgrades. However, the organization has worked to minimize downtime by implementing redundant systems and developing robust disaster recovery plans.

The UK Police frequently makes news, particularly in relation to high-profile criminal investigations and incidents of police misconduct. The organization has faced criticism over issues such as racial bias, use of force, and lack of transparency. In response, the UK Police has launched a range of initiatives aimed at improving accountability, transparency, and community engagement.
