Is public safety improving? New York City subway crime rate dropped sharply last quarter

ExistenceNew York CitySubwayFollowing the back-to-back shootings, state and city governments have repeatedly increased their police forces and will also use technology to search passengers, sparking public discussion and concerns about public safety. Have gone; Still, mayoradams(Eric Adams) On the 3rd, the NYPD said that the crime rate in the subway system declined in the first quarter of this year, and recidivism and the judicial system were the main reasons for the negative perception.

At a quarterly crime briefing held at the city’s police headquarters, city police Chief Edward Caban said the crime rate in the subway system had “decreased significantly” in the first three months of this year, and the city’s overall security situation also improved. Is. According to city police data, the crime rate in the metro system declined by 1.1% in the first quarter compared to previous years. In March, the metro crime rate declined by 23.5%, with robberies falling by 51.9% and grand larceny declining by 51.9%. 15.2%.

Caban said this result was due to the city police adding 1,000 subway patrol officers and 800 officers to combat fare evasion. Despite this, data shows that metro crimes are on the rise, resulting in injuries to victims, and the number of heinous assaults recorded in the city last year was the highest in almost 20 years. He said the current generation of “repeatedly arrested” repeat offenders are having a negative impact on the public’s perception of reality through crimes that “lack consequences.”

This statement was also echoed by Adams, who said that the problem of recidivism is currently the “biggest challenge”, as most crimes in the city are committed by a “small number of people” and mental health problems continue to have a negative impact. public security. Adams asserted that the New York subway is “the best public transportation in the world” and that the problem is that some elected officials “encourage crime.” Separately, he defended the controversial addition of gun scanners announced a week earlier as “great technology.”

According to city police Metro Chief Michael Kemper, there were more than 4,800 arrests in the metro in the first quarter, a 53% increase over the same period last year. However, some “chaotic behavior” still caused considerable psychological pressure on passengers. For example, he said there have been 34,000 fare evasion incidents so far this year and more than 16,000 summonses issued, which is close to a “historic high.”

Adams said widespread fare evasion directly leads to crime. Michael LePetri, head of crime control strategy for the city police, stressed that out of 7,000 arrests of pickpockets, 550 “career criminals” were identified and they were involved in 44% of the total 3,000 crimes this year, but They were still able to obtain bail. And go away. Taking to the streets because they believe bail reform will benefit them, they become recidivists and continue to commit crimes.

City police said the arrest rate for subway fare evasion has increased by 80% this year, and the arrest rate for firearms has increased by 83.3%. Additionally, the city’s seven major crime categories declined by 2.4%, but theft and felony theft increased by 4.3% and 3.8%.
