New York City passed a whole day without a single report of a person being shot, stabbed or subjected to any other sort of violent crime for the "first time in memory", police said.

Monday was symbolic as it came towards the end of a year in which the city's murder rate is on target to hit its lowest point since 1960, according to New York Police Department chief spokesman Paul Browne.
While crime is up 3% overall, including a 9% surge in grand larceny that police attribute to a rash of smart phone thefts, murder is down 23% over last year, the NYPD said.

As for a day without violent crime, experts said they could not recall that happening in recent memory.
Tom Repetto, author of American Police 1949-2012, said "In a city of 8 million people, this is extremely rare."

There have been 366 murders in the city so far this year, compared with 472 at this time last year, according to the NYPD. In 1990 the figure was somewhat higher at 2,300 murders.

The introduction of zero tolerance policing during the term of Mayor Rudy Giuliani and police Commisioner Bill Bratton in the early 1990s has been credited with beginning the drop to present crime rates.

Mr Repetto attributed New York's success to "pro-active" police department tactics, including its controversial stop and frisk policy.

While critics have charged that the dramatic increase in stops has not led to a similar rise in gun seizures, police officials have countered that proactive tactics have made criminals think twice about taking their guns out on the street.

By comparison, Chicago, Illinois, a city of about 2,707,000 people that has been plagued by gang violence in 2012 , has registered 462 murders so far this year, according to the Chicago Police Department.

In Philadelphia, a city of about 1,536,000 people, there have been 301 murders so far this year, the exact same number as this time last year.

Washington DC has also been successful in cutting down on violent crime during this year. The US capital is on track to finish the calendar year with less than 100 murders, which during the peak of murders in the area would have been unimaginable.

    Good for NYC. I think that NYC's crime rate has been steadily decreasing since the 70s. These are the kind of things that we should be proud of when it comes to our cities. 🤬 being proud of having your city being murder capital USA.

    Still no excuse for "stop and frisk" though

    More like since the 90s. 1990 had 2,200+ murders alone. Cosign the rest though..

    I'll admit I was expecting some good old fashioned American street violence being over here this week. Waiting for my flight back home now I am feeling slightly disappointed.

    Well done New York!

    DC Murder Rate Lowest Since 1961

    January 3, 2013 7:59 AM

    WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia has ended the year with a record low number of homicides.

    Mayor Vincent Gray and Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy Lanier are holding a press conference Thursday to announce that the city had 88 homicides in 2012. That’s the lowest on record since 1961.

    The drop reflects a downward trend in violent crime nationwide and is in line with declining homicides in other big cities. New York City officials say in 2011 homicides dropped to 515 from more than 2,200 in 1990. Houston reported 198 homicides in 2011, down from 457 in 1985, while Los Angeles police reported fewer than 300 after ending 1992 with about 1,100. Across the country, violent crime reported by police to the FBI fell by 3.8 percent last year from 2010.

    Should read, "No criminals caught today. Cops get dumber."

    At least criminals were kind enough to allow good Samaritans to enjoy their possessions or life for one more day.

    Keyword- without a single REPORT. Best believe crime happened, it just wasn't reported to the media. That's all.

    Of course, crime happened. The point is that, on that one day, less crime apparently happened, and at least it did officially. That's a cause for some kind of celebration in my book. NYC's murder and violent crime rate is relatively a lot lower than similar cities. Can't say the same for Philly, Boston, or D.C. Yall 🤬 are too cynical. And that's coming from a very cynical person.

    if you were that cynical, you'd be asking if this wasn't just cops playing numbers games.
