Crime Dropped In the Past Month

The crime figures reported by the 108th Police Precinct (which covers Sunnyside, Woodside and LIC) were released last week and crime for the 28-day period ending April 25 was down 10% compared to the same period in 2009.

The biggest reason for the decline was the large drop in grand larcenies, burglaries and grand larceny autos. Meanwhile, crimes such as robbery and felony assaults rose.

The number of reported felony assaults for the 28-day-period through April 25 was 14, up from 6 incidents for the same period in 2009. Robberies were up one, from 6 to 7.

However, burglaries dropped 17 percent (compared to the 28-day period in 2009) to 19 incidents, grand larcencies fell 24 percent to 31 incidents, and grand larceny autos fell 21 percent, to 22.
