The Crime and Justice Open Data Challenge is now complete. Three finalists, Total Car Check, Deaf Justice and Check That Bike were chosen at the Creation Weekend in September 2013. Check That Bike was selected as the overall winner and you can read their case study.

The Challenge

This challenge invited teams to consider how open data projects can be constructed that achieve one of the following:

  • increase community involvement with the criminal justice system
  • create further evidence for what are effective interventions for rehabilitation
  • address the rise in personal crime

Check That Bike, an innovative open data service to help cyclists check whether a bike is stolen, was announced as the winner of the Crime and Justice Open Data Challenge on 5 Feb 2014. Find out more about our winner and see what happened at our Pitch and Celebrate event.
