PoliceThe Post reports that the crime in NY for the first eight months of the year has decreased compared to last year. "Crime in seven major categories — murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny and auto theft — has so far fallen 6.12 percent." Police Commissioner Ray Kelly mentioned "Operation Impact" (a crime-fighting initiative started in January) in particular, for targeting "the most stubborn high-crime areas" and bringing down "crime in those zones by more than 33 percent." Also, rapes are down, reversing a recent upward trend, but murders are pretty steady in all boroughs except the Bronx, which had a 20% drop. The NYPD is projecting this to be the lowest crime year ever or one of the lowest. Let's hope that's true.
