Press Clips: Crime Spikes in The Bronx

Bronx Police Statistics for Year Ending 2018 Show big increase over 2017

By Robert Press

The year-end 2018 NYPD Comp Stat report shows a 25 percent increase in murder, and an 14+ percent increase in rape over 2017 in the Bronx. A breakdown of the twelve Bronx police precincts shows only the 46th and 47th Precincts had a decrease in both murder and rape statistics for 2018.

When confronted at a news conference Tuesday following the announcement of the New York Care Program, Mayor Bill de Blasio questioned this reporter’s figures. De Blasio asserted that all New Yorkers, including Bronx residents, believe that the city is the safest it has ever been and suggested that we check our figures with the NYPD but that if more resources are needed in the Bronx, they will be assigned.

Soon, I will take the mayor up on his offer, and request a meeting with the Police Commissioner, or a designee, to review the Comp Stat Murder and Rape data per Bronx precinct.
