Is the crime rate in New York going up or down? Reports of stabbings, subway chaos and attempted kidnappings have residents of the Big Apple on high alert. But is the city really that dangerous? Fox5ny shared crime statistics for April 2024.

The New York Police Department published crime statistics for the past month, and also talked about the dynamics of murders, assaults and crimes in transport. Overall, April crime in the city was down 4,9% compared to the same month last year, according to NYPD statistics.

Downward trend

Crime decreased in 2024: from January 1, 2024 to April 28, 2024, police reported 37,8 major crimes (murder, rape, robbery, violent assault, burglary, grand theft, and auto theft in especially large sizes). During the same period in 2023, the police recorded about 39 thousand such crimes.

Murders decreased by 30,3%. In April of this year there were 23 of them, and last year there were 10 more. The number of burglaries also decreased: 1003 cases were recorded this month compared to 1122 in April 2023. The number of shooting incidents decreased by 15,5%.

Increase in crime

However, in the city the number of rapes increased by 5,1% and robberies by 7,2%. And since the beginning of the year, the number of attacks in the city has also increased: 8,58 thousand in 2024 compared to 8,33 thousand in 2023.

The city's subway is always the center of attention for New Yorkers. Residents are concerned about crime, although crime overall has dropped, according to the MTA.

“The number of major crimes in the country's largest subway system decreased by another 23%. This downward trend is stable, with crime down 15,4% in February and 23,5% in March,” the NYPD said in a press release.

The total number of hate crimes increased by 39%, and the number of hate crimes targeting Jewish and Muslim populations doubled. This spike "is not related to the current geopolitical situation," the NYPD said.
