Track Crime In LIC With New NYPD Tool

pr199-16

March 17, 2016 Staff Report

Residents will be able to keep a closer eye on much of the criminal activity taking place in Long Island City using the NYPD’s recently released CompStat2.0 website.

The site allows users to search crime stats by precinct and to see criminal incidents pinpointed on a map. Long Island City is part of the 108 Precinct, Queens North.

Users are able to select a precinct to see crime statistics and how they compare to the previous year.

Users can also see when and where incidents of a specific crime occurred. On the map, blue dots appear, showing where a crime took place. Users can click each dot for more information about the crime.

Data can also be sorted by time of day, day of the week and “subtype” (for instance, residential robberies versus shoplifting).

Therefore, if there is a crime pattern–such as a spate of burglaries–residents will be able to track them.

“CompStat 2.0 changes the way crime data is reported,” Police Commissioner William Bratton said. “It provides the ability for anyone to search what matters to them: their street, their neighborhood, their borough. This sort of clarity is not merely about useful information, it also builds relationships between the police and the community.”

The NYPD released the CompStat2.0 website on Feb. 23.

“We’re taking CompStat into the 21st Century—and making our crime numbers clear and accessible for all New Yorkers,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Precincts maps for the 028, 032, 044, 046, 073, 075, 103, 113 probably just show one big blue dot over it.

Original Comp Stat was just a way to lessen the crime that occurred. Even cops came out against it. Cops were told to lessen the crime that originally happened. NYC is not as safe as The Mayor and Police Commissioner would have you believe. There are stabbings every day and they are up 20%. I would not believe these 2 guys on a stack of Bibles.
