SpotCrime API

The service provides maps at the neighborhood level representing data on criminal incidents from city and county police and other authorities. It provides alerts on incidents within specified areas and summary reports of crimes reported to police by area and time period.

API methods support retrieval of a list of crimes within a specified radius of a location defined as latitude and longitude. Returned results can be filtered for the maximum number of records, a date range, and type of crime. Returned data give the crime victim's name, the type of offense, the date and location, and a description provided by investigating officers or other authorities.

In was interested in this api, but when I requested access all I was told was that it would be costly. That's all, I don't think they are really interested in providing this api.
