The New York City Police Department on Friday announced the latest statistics on crime in the Big Apple. The NYPD said the number of carjackings and burglaries in September was up from the same time last year.

Meanwhile, citywide shooting incidents decreased by 13.2%, and the number of murders citywide decreased for September by 23.5%. "Our strategies to suppress violence, to seize illegal guns and to hold criminals accountable for their actions are beginning to gain traction," NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said in a statement.  "But the NYPD cannot shoulder this work alone.

Our entire criminal justice system and all of our government and community partners must pull in the same direction and remain focused on our shared goal: the safety of everyone who lives, works and visits New York City."
