Jersey City
On Friday, June 1, 2001, the Associated Press reported that in the year 2000 Jersey City had the largest drop in serious crime among New Jersey's largest cities - more than Newark, Paterson and Elizabeth.

According to the AP, not only is Jersey City ranked exceptionally well statewide, it is also bucking national trends. While the drops in rates have stagnated nationally, Jersey City's continued to fall at an impressive rate.

The Jersey City Police Department released statistics today for the 1st quarter of 2001, which show that Jersey City's drop in crime will continue to outperform state and national trends. According to the 2001 first quarter crime statistics, Jersey City experienced an 8% decline during the 1st quarter of the year. Assaults and burglary have both dropped 17%, larceny dropped 9% and auto-theft dropped 5%.

"In order for Jersey City residents to enjoy the benefits of urban life, they must feel safe. This is why I have worked steadfastly with the City Council and the Jersey City Police Force to ensure that every modern crime fighting technique is being deployed in Jersey City," stated Mayor Bret Schundler. "Combining a strong community policing program and a zero tolerance for quality of life offenses, like public drinking, has been the key to our success."
