Crime and Enforcement Activity
in New York City
(Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2018)

James P. O’Neill
Police Commissioner

Introduction
This report presents statistics on race/ethnicity compiled from the New York City
Police Department’s records management system. Crime Complaint Reports contain
information on the crime victims’ race and ethnicity as recorded by the officers or
precinct clerical staff interviewing the victim or complainant. The victim’s description of
any non-arrested suspects will also be recorded on the crime complaint report. Arrests
made by the responding officers will be recorded on an arrest report associated with the
crime complaint report and used to initiate the booking system. Once the information has
been entered and “signed” off by a supervisor it is stored in the Department’s Enterprise
Data Warehouse. The data for this report were drawn from the Data Warehouse.
Additional information was drawn from a separate Homicide and Shooting Database that
collects additional statistical information for Murder and Shooting incidents.
The crime complaint and arrest data contained in this report represent crimes
occurring from January 1, 2018 thru December 31, 2018 for the general crime complaint
and arrest data (compiled on January 14, 2019). The Murder and Shooting tables and
charts are also based on incidents that occurred through December 31, 2018 as are the
statistics presented for Firearm arrests (compiled on January 14, 2019).
Stop Question and Frisk data and Violent Crime Suspect information are taken
from the New York City Police Department’s Stop, Question and Frisk Database which is
also the source of the quarterly report on Stop Question and Frisk Activity supplied to the
New York City Council for all 4 quarters 2018.

Statistical Considerations
Commercial victimizations are generally noted on crime complaint reports and are
excluded from the statistics dealing with specific categories of crime. However it is
likely that a small number of commercial victimizations may be inadvertently included in
the victim data when a report is not properly classified as a commercial victimization.
Those cases would generally present the race/ethnicity of employees as the crime victims.
Both crime complaint reports and arrest reports are classified according to the
most serious crime recorded or charge lodged. Arrest statistics represent arrests made by
all Police agencies operating within the confines of New York City and arresting and
charging individuals with crime under New York State laws. The arrest statistics
presented here do not include arrests made by federal agencies.

Crime complaint statistics used in these tables and charts are from crimes
occurring during calendar year 2018 and Arrest statistics presented represent arrests made
during calendar year 2018. Crime complaint reports that were recorded during calendar
year 2018 but report an incident occurring in prior years are excluded from these

i

statistics. Arrest reports included in these statistics do include arrests made during
calendar year 2018 for incidents that may have occurred in prior years.
Black Hispanic and White Hispanic categories have been combined into a single
Hispanic category for the statistical tables and charts presented in this report. The
categories of Black and White used in tables and charts through out this report therefore
represent Black Non-Hispanic and White Non-Hispanic. The labels Black and White are
used for the sake of brevity and simplicity of presentation in the various tables and charts.
The New York City Police Department’s Crime Reporting System uses a two
tiered crime classification system. The broadest level of categorization is used to present
the statistics in this report. Specific broad Crime categories however may contain only
some subcategories for which suspect descriptions are typically available (e.g. a Larceny
from the person will normally provide some suspect descriptive information while a
larceny from a business office without a witness will not). For certain broad crime
categories the number of crime complaints that contain suspect descriptions with race/
ethnicity information will therefore only be a portion of the total complaints recorded.
The tables included in the report contain overall statistics that explain the
available victim and suspect information for each broad crime category. The victim
count for the period for the example table below, Misdemeanor Criminal Mischief is
36,635. Of these victims, 20,682 had information on the race/ethnicity of a noncommercial victim. Within this crime complaint population suspect information was
available for 18,609 suspects and the race/ethnicity of 9,220 of those suspects was
available. During calendar year 2018 5,797 misdemeanor criminal mischief arrests were
made and 5,766 of these records contained race/ethnicity information.

contained in the broad crime categories used in the tables and charts contained in this
report.

An initial crime complaint report may record a crime with several suspects some
of whom may be arrested at the time the crime is reported and recorded. The nonarrested suspects are included in the “suspect” statistics in the tables and charts included
in this report and arrested individuals are included in the “arrestee” statistics. At the time
these statistics were compiled additional follow up arrests may have been made
increasing the number of arrested suspects. In so far as that situation has occurred within
calendar year 2018 data presented the suspect and arrests data will overlap and count the
same individual as both suspect and arrestee if a follow up arrest has been made during
the period.
Arrest statistics are drawn from the initial booking data collected by the arresting
officer prior to arraignment. The small number of arrest records without race/ethnicity
may result from arrestees that have no identification and whose race/ethnicity cannot
initially be determined before arraignment or due to administrative omissions in report
preparation.
The race/ethnicity of victims are recorded by the officer or precinct clerical staff
who are taking the report and rely on that interaction with the
victim/complainant/reporter to determine the victims race/ethnicity. The suspect’s
description is also recorded at this time but relies on the victim’s assessment of race and
ethnicity given their interaction with the suspect. The arrestee race/ethnicity is recorded
as a result of the officers assessment of the individual’s identification documents the
individual’s physical characteristics and in many cases their prior criminal record.
Arrestee race/ethnicity and victim designation of suspect race/ethnicity may therefore
vary due to the different methods of determination.

Classification as a Shooting incident is based upon a bullet striking the victim. A
Shooting incident therefore contains complaints for violent crimes such as Rape, Robbery
and Felonious Assault as well as Murders committed with a firearm. This category therefor is not mutually exclusive with the broad crime classifications used in the other tables
and charts within this report but is meant to isolate those specific instances where
firearms are used to cause harm regardless of the other crimes committed.
Some crime categories are principally proactive enforcement events and will have
no specific victim e.g. drug possession, sale and manufacture. The race/ethnicity of
arrested individuals is reported for these categories. Additionally possible drug related
criminal activity is also reported as allegations via 911 and various hot lines. Criminal
activity noted in allegations requires further investigation to determine if criminal activity
is actually occurring as suspected in the report from the public. Arrests may result from
those follow-up investigations. Drug allegations may contain suspect race/ethnicity
descriptions.
The Arrest statistics dealing with firearm arrests are a special compilation
focusing on arrests that remove one or more firearms from the street. The arrests so
identified are arrests that include selected Felony Dangerous Weapons charges, indicate

iii

by specific report entries the presence of a firearm and finally that a firearm was
vouchered as a result of the arrest. A firearm arrest will be counted if these conditions
are met by an arrest containing other charges, some of which may be for serious violent
felonies. The Firearm Arrest statistics therefore include arrests for other violent crimes
that are also included in other tables within this report.

frequently Black (69.0%) or Hispanic (23.9%).
White arrestees account for (5.3%) and Asian
