Police.uk API PHP Curl Class

Police.uk has a JSON based REST API web service to access UK crime data. Attached is a PHP class to access the API.  The class is object based, uses curl and returns PHP Associative Arrays (or boolean false)

Update: 6/2 – MySQL schema & import functions added.

    How long does it take to get the username / password back from the signup page? Been waiting for 8 hours now.

      I got my username within an hour or so… but that was really soon after launch… give them a call if you are desperate ;-)

      No problem at all….. I’ve merged all your changes back into Master & added the MySQL schema that I use to store the Police.Uk crime data…. I hear that the zip files will be deleted every month!!
      If you do write an app, do let me know :)
