The New York Police announced a reduction in crime in January 2024

The Police Department of this City (NYPD) announced this Monday the reduction of crimes in the month of January 2024 with the same period of January 2023, including murders, rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults.

Also, for the second month in a row, the number of stolen vehicles in New York City decreased by at least 3.8% (1,178 versus 1,224).

Murders decreased by 25% (27 vs. 36); rape by 24.4% (102 versus 135); burglary by 19.8% (1,065 versus 1,328); grand theft of vehicles by 3.8% (1,178 versus 1,224); and felony assault by 1.5% (2,068 vs. 2,100).

Arrests for major crimes increased by 5.7% (4,676 vs. 4,422).

Shooting incidents decreased by 10.8% (66 versus 74), which corresponds to an 11.5% decrease (77 versus 87) in the number of shooting victims. In addition, the police arrested 330 people for possession of illegal weapons and confiscated 508 weapons.

The military has removed more than 14,115 guns from the streets of NYC since the administration began two years ago.

“It is clear that the tremendous work done by the men and women of the NYPD to address gun violence continues to produce significant reductions in violence and disorder across multiple categories,” said Police Commissioner Edward A. Caban.

“These intensive efforts have ripple effects throughout the city, improve the quality of life, and increase public safety on a large scale.”

Total crime in public housing decreased by 11 serious crimes (486 versus 497). The total number of bias incidents investigated by the Hate Crimes Task Force in the five boroughs increased by 12 incidents (45 versus 33) in January, led by a month-on-month increase in anti-Jewish incidents.
