About The PaleBlueDot

The PaleBlueDot was launched in early 2021 to give answers to the UK's most common question about crime: is it safe where I live?

Aiming to give unique insight into crime and safety at a local level, PaleBlueDot combines official police crime data with unique mapping and analysis to produce useful and actionable data points for people living in the UK.

Named after the famous photo of Earth taken in 1990 from 3.7 billion miles away by the Voyager space probe, the site was repurposed by Thomas Buck, a technologist based near Brighton.
