August 5, 2022

For the month of July 2022, the overall number of shooting incidents increased in New York City compared to July 2021, underscoring the continued need to eradicate gun violence and end the perception among criminals that it is not there are no consequences for violent crimes. Citywide shootings rose 13.4% (178 from 157), driven by increases in Brooklyn, southern Queens and Staten Island. Additionally, the number of murders across the city increased for the month by 34.3% (47 from 35) compared to the same period last year.

In its ongoing efforts to keep New Yorkers from being victims of violence, the NYPD has seized more than 4,300 firearms since the start of 2022. At the same time, firearm arrests in citywide through July are at their highest level in 27 years, rising to 2,752 — a 2.4% increase from the 2,687 firearm arrests in the first seven months of 2021. Additionally, NYPD officers in July 2022 made 4,017 arrests for major crime complaints, an 18.2% increase from the 3,398 major crime arrests in the same month last year. Major crime arrests are up nearly 29% so far in calendar year 2022, compared to the first seven months of 2021.

Overall listed crime in New York increased in July 2022, by 30.5% compared to July 2021 (11,619 compared to 8,906). Six of the top seven index offense categories saw increases, led by a 40.6% increase in robberies (4,588 vs. 3,262), a 37.2% increase in robberies (1,730 vs. 1,261 ) and a 25.6% increase in burglaries (1,325 vs. 1,055).

“We know that any increase in crime in our city is completely unacceptable,” said Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell. “Everyone who lives, works and visits here deserves to be safe, and NYPD members will tolerate no less – but we can’t do it alone. When violent criminals are willing to bring illegal weapons to our streets and brazenly shoot innocent people, they must face real consequences. And when rampant, revolving door recidivism erodes public confidence in the criminal justice system, we must work to refocus that system on what matters most: the victims. We all need to pull in the same direction, so we can best deliver on the public safety promise we make to every New Yorker, every day. »

The precision policing-based application that was conducted in July 2022 continues the NYPD’s mission to keep people safe and hold criminals accountable for their crimes. This work has resulted in an 8.7% reduction in shootings since the start of the year – with 63 fewer shooting victims in the first seven months of 2022 compared to the same period last year – and a decrease of 4.2% of murders since the beginning of the year through the end of July.

This summer, the NYPD continues its work to develop and investigate long-term, intelligence-based cases focused on the few New Yorkers willing to pick up a gun and use it. Much of this work is done in concert with the department’s law enforcement partners, exemplified by the recent dismantling of a violent Trinitarios Street Team by our NYPD investigators working alongside the U.S. Attorney’s Office. , the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The NYPD’s Gun Violence Enforcement Section continues to build a strong case by locating and seizing illegal firearms – and in many cases removing them before they can ever be sold on the streets of New York City. .

The ministry is committed to a flexible and adaptable approach to changing crime trends and conditions, and this is evident in the continued implementation of the Summer Violence Reduction Plan. We are deploying additional officers every day to the constituencies, transit districts and housing estates that need them the most. Our Summer Beach Retail, which runs through Labor Day, provides additional coverage for select orders during the busiest and busiest time of year at our city’s public beaches. We have increased patrols by our road and traffic safety officers, neighborhood coordination officers, field intelligence officers, and more. All of this has one goal: to keep every New Yorker, in every neighborhood of New York, safe.

This work is ongoing and always driven by community concerns. The support and partnership the NYPD receives from the community was on full display across the city on August 2 at annual “National Night Out Against Crime” events, many of which were attended by the Mayor and Police Commissioner. Additionally, we announced the expansion of our highly successful “Saturday Night Lights” program in early July, increasing the number of available gyms across the city by 30%. This program provides exceptional sports programs and activities, as well as high quality coaches and mentors, to children in all five boroughs. We are heavily invested in providing our young people with fun, safe and engaging summer activities – and by focusing on youth development, we will continue to build confidence and create opportunities for young people in many of the communities that have the most need us.

The NYPD will never stop fighting for New Yorkers and will always strive to keep the attention of the criminal justice system where it belongs: on the people we serve.
