NEWS: NYC major crime — including murder — dipped by 3% in 2023, mayor’s management report shows



Major crime in the Big Apple — including murders and shootings — dipped during the first four months of last fiscal year, an early look at the mayor’s annual report shows.

The city saw an overall reduction of nearly 3% in the seven major seven crime categories, 44,447 vs 45,738, between July and October last year compared to the same time in 2022, according to the report.

The Preliminary Mayor’s Management Report, which is set to be released in full Tuesday afternoon and a portion of which was obtained by The Post, highlights the downward trend in five of the major felony categories, including murder.

“When we came into office 24 months ago, we had a clear vision to protect public safety, rebuild our economy, and make our city more livable for all New Yorkers,” Mayor Eric Adams said.

“Two years later, we have not only driven crime down and made New Yorkers feel safer, but the data shows that we are clearly continuing to deliver on our promise.”

The Big Apple recorded 123 homicides, which includes murder and non-negligent manslaughter in this report, during that period, down 21% from 155 logged in the same time the year prior.

While murder has been slowly ticking down over the last few years, robbery, burglary and grand larceny have each been on an upward trend — but reversed over those four months.

At the same time, though, felony assaults and grand larceny autos jumped 5.6% and 18.2%, respectively, to nearly offset the gains in the other five major crime categories, according to the report.

The Adams administration credited the reduction in murders and shootings for having a trickle-down effect to other felonies throughout the city.

“From day one, we went to work and made illegal guns our top priority,” Police Commissioner Edward Caban said, adding, “Those intensive efforts had ripple effects across other violent crime categories — both up on the streets and down below ground in our nation’s largest and most-travelled subway system.”

“Our crime fighting is focused, it is effective, and it is making our great city safer.”

In addtion, over the same four-month period, the city’s underground saw 4% fewer major crimes, 751 vs 783, and a 10% decrease in crime in city parks, 207 vs 231.

NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue said a reduction of crime in the city’s greenspaces is “key to quality of life in New York City.

“The more they are used the better they become,” Donoghue added.
