Anton, Other/Just Looking in 10025

Could anyone verify the news for me and also show me how to research on crime rates?

Asked by Anton, 10025 Mon Mar 1, 2010

i read from the newspaper that the crime rate in Bay Ridge and Fort Hamilton area of Brooklyn is picking up. Two murders by gang members in December 2009 and January 2010. Could anyone verify the news for me and also show me how to research on crime rates? Thank you.

Anton, I had read the same article that Joe is talking about below. Crime is up all over the city this year, which is being blamed on the cuts in the police force during the past year. It would be best to look at statistics over time to see which areas are safer. I am sure you will find similar statistics in many major cities.

Brooklyn’s crime statistics for the first quarter are looking none too good. Three months into the new decade felonies are way up, the Daily News reports, with almost 70 percent of Brooklyn police precincts seeing an increases in robberies, burglaries, grand larceny or auto theft of twenty percent or more. Last week Mayor Bloomberg blamed rising city crime rates on budget cuts. Some of the steepest increases were observed in Sunset Park/Windsor Terrace where burglaries were up 120 percent from 25 to 55 and around Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill, where they climbed 104 percent. Rapes and homicides were a growing concern in some neighborhoods, including Clinton Hill.

All police precincts in NYC are also on the Internet and post crime statistics every 2 weeks. Additionally, each precinct has a community affairs officer (contact ino on the web site), to whom you can speak about crime in the area.

Good luck!

Your best source of information regarding crime is the local police department--why not stop in, ask all your questions and hear all there is to hear firsthand.

http://www.city-data.com

http://www.zipskinny.com

those websites should have that kind of information. city-data could be 2-4 year old data however.

The best way is probably to go to your local police station and ask them about this. They are the ones who have up to the minute details.
