The demonstration shows how Power BI can make for easy cross analysis of the different parameters allowing for quick and effective insights to be made. For example, it shows how a certain local authority has a sudden increase in a specific crime such as antisocial behaviour, it can also look deeper and show on a map where in the local authority these crimes are being committed. This can help local police forces to effectively use their resources to tackle a specific or reoccurring issue. In the report it is clear that antisocial behaviour is a large proportion of the crimes being committed in comparison of all other crime types.  

The demonstration of the Power BI dashboard provides an overview of how flexible the user can be when using the report. The different data parameters in the report can be used to drill down to produce extremely precise findings. Police forces using the Crime Analysis Power BI report can see a summary of total crimes committed and a crime trend for several years prior at a first glance.
