Felony crime dropped 28.58% in the 66 Precinct according to its current CompStat report (#40) for Monday, Oct 1, through Sunday, October 7.
During that first week in October, total felony incidents fell to 25 compared to 35 for the same week in 2011 (wtd, or week to date). The 28-day felony figure also dropped by 7.48% compared to the 28-day total for the same period in 2011.
