NYPD: Crime down overall in June


Crime numbers dipped to an all-time modern low in June, according tonumbers released by the NYPD on Wednesday.

NYPD numbers show 799 crimes were reported across the city last month, a drop of 8.5 percent, making 2015 the lowest June on record since modern crime gathering started in 1993.

“It was the lowest June, not only for overall crime, but burglaries, homicides, and shooting incidents,” said NYPD Deputy Commissioner Dermot Shea.

The number of shootings in May dropped after an uptick in May. The NYPD said gang-related homicides are up, as are homicides of people who are on parole or probation.
