Looks like it was a big week for auto theft (G.L.A.) with a jump to seven. Still, we’ve seen a 24+ percent reduction in crime year-to-date, but that divide appears to be narrowing. It was 36 percent nearly a month ago.
CompStat reports are produced by the New York Police Department on a weekly basis. As a new feature on Sheepshead Bites, we’ll be summarizing the week’s statistics for the 61st Precinct as the reports become available (usually on Monday, one week after the closing date). The 61st Precinct is the police command responsible for Sheepshead Bay, Gravesend, Kings Highway, Homecrest, Madison, Manhattan Beach, and Gerritsen Beach.
