FBI: New York Safest Big City in U.S.

Tuesday, 19 September 2006 12:00 AM

New York remained the safest of the 10 largest cities in the United States in 2005, with about one crime reported for every 37 people, according to FBI statistics.

The large city with the highest crime rate was Dallas, with about one crime reported for every 12 people. Los Angeles ranked eighth, with about one crime for every 26 people.

The annual report "shows that our innovative efforts to reduce crime and increase New Yorkers' quality of life are working," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement Monday after the agency released the figures.

The number of reported crimes in New York fell 4.3 per cent last year, while the number countrywide in the United States dropped 1.2 per cent.

Police statistics show crime in New York has continued to fall this year, down 5.04 per cent by Sept. 10 compared with the same period in 2005.

The national figures showed that violent crime rose 2.3 per cent last year, the first increase since 2001. But in New York City, violent crimes - which include rape, murder, robbery and aggravated assault - fell 1.9 per cent.
