[ARCHIVED] 2014 Annual Report Shows Part 1 Crime at Historic Low

2014 NRPD Annual Report Released
City Remains a Top Safest Regionally and Nationally

New Rochelle retained its ranking as one of the safest cities nationally in 2013, according to the 2014 Annual Report released this week by the New Rochelle Police Department. The City was in the top 10% (#11) among similarly-sized cities (population 75,000- 99,999). Additionally, the City of New Rochelle retains the lowest crime rate among similar municipalities in Westchester County and New York State.

Incorporated in the annual report were Part I crime statistics for 2014, showing an overall reduction of 6% and decreases in almost all categories, most notably Auto Theft (33%), Robbery (10%), Larceny (6%), and Burglaries (5%). And when compared to figures over the past decade, the crime rate remains historically low. In 2014, the department responded to nearly 50,000 calls for service.

“These are the lowest figures we’ve seen in over five decades- since 1960,” said New Rochelle Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll. “I commend the fine men and women of the department, and we will continue to work hard to keep these numbers down.”

The report also details departmental accomplishments, including increasing DWI enforcement by 67%; and the installation of 47 municipal surveillance cameras throughout the City.
