The spike in burglaries continued this week, for the second week in a row. The tragic murders of a mother and daughter in the Nostrand Houses also hit the stats this week, and Grand Larceny Auto is back up after a slight decline last year.
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.
