Encouraging News! CNY’s Shootings With Injuries Down By 68% Year-On-Year

DEBARYLIFE – Compared with the average for the previous five years from January to April, the number of shooting occurrences resulting in injuries in major New York cities has dropped by approximately 35% as of April 2024.

The decrease is attributed to 94 fewer shootings, 13 fewer gun-related fatalities, and 84 fewer shootings outside of New York City. The state’s Gun Involved Violence Elimination (GIVE) project is where law enforcement agencies that are involved report this information.

The state’s gun violence reduction strategy includes the GIVE initiative, which is a major component. It gives resources to police departments, probation departments, district attorneys’ offices, and sheriff’s offices in 21 counties outside of New York City, which together account for 85% of all violent crimes that happen in the state.

In comparison to the same period previous year, there have been 68% fewer recorded gunshots in Central New York, which has had the fastest reduction in shootings.
