New York City is one of the safest big cities in the country. Major crime has fallen by 76% in the last thirty years and by 9% in the last three. And 2016 was the safest year in CompStat history, with homicides down 5%, shootings down 12%, and burglaries down 15% from 2015.
To reduce crime even further, we are developing innovative strategies that extend beyond traditional enforcement to build stronger and safer neighborhoods in partnership with the people who live in them. Explore the links to the right for more information on this work.
