NYPD Announces Citywide Crime Statistics for January 2022

February 3, 2022

For the month of January 2022, New York City saw a 38.5% increase in overall listed crime compared to January 2021 (9,566 vs. 6,905). All major categories of index crimes saw increases for the month of January 2022, with the exception of murder, which fell 15.2% (28 from 33). Robberies increased by 33.1% (1,251 from 940) and robberies increased by 58.1% (4,047 from 2,559). Citywide shootings increased 31.6% (100 from 76) in January 2022 compared to the same period last year.

In the face of these challenges, the NYPD remains steadfast in its mission to reduce crime and combat the growing number of gun violence on the streets of New York City. Keeping New Yorkers safe is the job every New York City police officer is committed to doing — despite the all-too-obvious risks — and it’s the job the Department asks of them. The shared mission of security and justice drives the NYPD to expand its innovative gun violence suppression strategies, which are rooted in long-term, intelligence-driven investigations. This work, exemplified by the Gun Violence Strategies Partnership, highlights the collective effort to use all resources to stop those who pull the trigger. NYPD leaders are working around the clock, together with their federal and state law enforcement partners, and the city’s five district attorneys, to design comprehensive crime-fighting measures, build solid criminal cases and achieve meaningful consequences for crimes that tear at the fabric of the city.

“The NYPD will always work to ensure public safety and will never abandon this city,” said Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell. “It is our solemn vow to New Yorkers and the City of New York. It remains essential that all partners participate in this shared mission to combat gun violence. NYPD officers to honor the lives of their two recently murdered colleagues, first-year detectives Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora. We will never forget the light they shone for us and we will never abandon our privileged duty guardian of society.
