NYPD Announces Citywide Crime Statistics for June 2022

July 7, 2022

For the month of June 2022, the overall number of shooting incidents decreased again in New York City compared to June 2021, continuing the downward trend in gun violence in the first half of the calendar year. Citywide shootings were down 24.2% (125 from 165), marked by declines in all patrol boroughs except North Queens – where the number rose by two incidents in June 2022 compared to June 2021. Additionally, the number of murders decreased for the month. 31.6% (26 against 38) compared to the same period last year. Overall, hate crimes were also down 8% (59 from 64) compared to June 2021.

There were 355 firearm arrests in June 2022, bringing the total number of firearm arrests citywide in 2022 to 2,381 – a 4.0% increase from 2,290 firearm arrests firearms in the first six months of 2021. In its ongoing effort to eradicate gun violence, the NYPD has seized more than 3,700 firearms since the start of 2022 — at a time when arrests of guns are at their highest level in 27 years.

Overall listed crime in New York increased by 31.1% in June 2022 compared to June 2021 (11,073 vs. 8,448). Six of the top seven categories of index crimes saw increases, led by a 41.0% increase in robberies (4,467 vs. 3,168), a 36.1% increase in robberies (1,548 vs. 1,137) and a 33.8% increase in burglaries (1,279). v. 956).

“The NYPD’s work to reduce gun violence in New York City is taking root – with the number of shootings down in all five boroughs,” said Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell. “We have removed thousands of firearms from the streets – both traditional firearms and phantom guns – and carried out major bans on illegal weapons with our law enforcement partners. . We are encouraged by this downward trend in gun violence as summer approaches, but realize that we must remain focused on our essential mission of public safety – the lives of New Yorkers depend on it.

The drop in shootings in June 2022 continues the strong reductions in the second quarter of the year, resulting in an overall annual reduction in shootings. It reflects the combined sum of the NYPD’s gun violence reduction strategies – evidenced by Neighborhood Safety Teams, Gun Violence Suppression Division, Major Case Intelligence Team, etc.

In mid-March, we deployed our new Neighborhood Safety Teams – and these hand-picked, specially trained officers made immediate and positive contributions to public safety. Across the city, NST members have removed approximately 150 illegal firearms from our neighborhoods, and this courageous work ensures that these deadly weapons will never harm another New Yorker.

Additionally, NYPD officers work around the clock to develop and investigate long-term, intelligence-based cases focused on the very few New Yorkers willing to pick up a gun and use it. The NYPD’s Gun Violence Enforcement Section continues to build those cases by locating and seizing illegal firearms — and in many cases, they can do so before those guns hit the streets of New York City.

The Major Case Intelligence team conducts specialist investigations to stop the flow of self-made firearms, also known as “phantom guns”. These investigations begin with online purchases of ghost gun kits, extra parts and other ways to assemble these guns at home – and culminate in search warrants and seizures at a never seen before.

All of these efforts call on the department’s precision policing philosophy to keep New Yorkers safe, and they strive to keep the criminal justice system’s focus where it belongs: on the victims.
