New York, NY—The NYPD 19th Precinct CompStat report for the week of July 20 to July 26, 2020 reveals the crime complaints of grand larceny and petit larceny were the highest reported, while year-to-date crime complaints of burglary and robbery are higher than they were at this same time last year.
For example, there were 32 reported cases of grand larceny for the aforementioned week, which is one less for the same week one year ago. While there was a total of 98 reported cases over a 28-day period, this is 29 percent less than the 138 cases reported in 2019 for the same 28-day period. And for year-to-date, there are less reported cases of grand larceny compared to last year: 662 vs. 878.
To provide a historical perspective, grand larceny rates have significantly decreased. For example, there were 5,406 of reported cases 30 years ago in 1990, followed by 3,792 cases in 1993, 2,167 in 1998 and 2,208 cases in 2001.
For petit larceny, the stealing of another person's property that is less than $50 in value, there were 62 reported cases for the week of July 20 to July 26, 2020, which is 10 more than last year for the same week. Over the past 28 days there have 230 complaints versus 207 last year. And for year-to-date, there are 1,461 cases reported compared to 1,298 cases last year, an increase of 12.6 percent.

Again, historical perspective demonstrates a significant downward trajectory of both crime complaints.
