A few observations. The numbers plotted from 1990 show a huge drop in crime overall and in almost every category. That's to be applauded. Also, 2007 appears to be an improvement over 2006. Again that's good news. Over recent years, the drop in crime isn't quite so strong: violent crime, particularly robberies and murders seem to be on the increase since 2000, though non-violent crime is trending down. On the last graph, I'm not sure you meant to plot the number of arrests 2007 vs 2006, which shows fewer arrests in 2007. If you plot the number of crimes 2007 vs 2006, there's a strong comparative performance in the first 4 months, but looks like we're back to 2006 levels in recent months. I think most people are weary of the debate on statistics. I personally would like to hear more on proposals to improve policing, and in particular those that increase the deterrance of crime and improve the visibility of the police on our streets.

With you there bro. As much as I respect what the JCPD face, we're really short on police presence on the streets. I also hugely respect what ppl like Brightmoment and co. do in the local neighborhood.

Bottom line tho...we need a bigger police presence to deter crime. When the crims mug, burglarize and rob at will within a block or two of the police stations...shows we have a real lack of police on the beat.

I posted that because I think Comey gets it. There's definitely a need for shaking things up. I'm not yet convinced though there is a plan. Neither from the police, nor from the JC council.

I think most people would agree that Comey's comments make sense. More police on the streets. More local policing through precincts. More use of tech on surveillance and communication. The sticking point, as always is funding.

I think what Comey is missing is hard and fast targets to measure progress. If the City commits funds, I think we need to demand and measure a return on our investment.

Also, I think the City might be missing out on places for the funding. For example, why cant new developers be obligated to provide space in high-rises for precinct offices? Doen't that solve part of the "managing office space issue".

Why cant all new public and private buildings be obliged to hook up their CCTV to a central police center? And why cant JC seek federal funds for that? I'm sure there are a chorus of civil libertarian issue on that....but why not at least ask the questions.

From JJ Saturday

more stations, but how will Jersey City pay for it?


Jersey City's top cop wants to expand the department by at least 200 officers, break up the city's district system and re-establish precincts, a move that would create additional stations throughout the city.
Police Chief Tom Comey's wish list, however, remains just that: A wish list.

Not only are there questions about the costs associated with such proposals, it also remains uncertain to many whether they would actually reduce crime or just bloat the city's already ailing budget.

However, Comey says, maintaining the status quo fails to address the city's sweeping demographic changes, as development expands to traditionally industrial strongholds and the population continues to grow.

"We are being asked to take on additional responsibilities with the same amount of resources," Comey said, noting that the department is also required to handle additional responsibilities in a post-9/11 world.

Currently, the police department has 889 officers. Adding 200 more would still place the department behind Newark, which has a higher population and more than 1,300 police officers.

"I wish I could say more cops meant less crime, but I don't know what that really means," said City Councilwoman Viola Richardson, a former police officer. "We have more cops now than we had in a while, and we are still having problems."

As for the financial implications of increasing the department by roughly 22 percent, Richardson said, "I don't know if we can sell that to a public who is already struggling with taxes."

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he supports the notion of adding more officers, pointing to the fact that he has increased the department's overall numbers by roughly 100 officers since coming into office in 2004.

However, he said financial constraints make it hard - if not impossible - to grant his police chief's wishes.

"Of course I would love to do that, but I don't know that we have the money," Healy said.

In addition, Comey says the department's current four-district system is antiquated and he would like to re-establish a precinct system that would put more station houses in the city.

"In order to continue to service the community, we need to redefine our geographic area," Comey says.

Healy said the precinct idea is something that can be discussed, but he is skeptical about the city's ability to purchase property, as well as its ability to operate and manage property.

"I just don't think the city is good at owning property," Healy said.

Richardson is skeptical about the precinct proposal, saying more stations does not necessarily translate to a higher police presence because officers don't say in the stations.

"Officers come to the station, then they leave in a car to go on their shifts, so I am not sure a building means a higher presence," said Richardson.

Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop said, "It's a great idea, but you need to balance great ideas with costs to the taxpayers.

"If I had a choice between more police officers or more buildings, given the budget, I would choose more police officers," he added.

Comey said the department also needs to modernize. He would like to add to the 78 cameras currently in use throughout the city, as well as equip police cars to receive live video feeds from cameras that would give officers eyes on the street before going to a scene of an incident.

Other proposals include creating a central processing unit in the department that would allow officers to quickly process people and get back on the street and increased information about crime prevention and levels on the department's Web site.

FIFTH OF A SERIES

Court ...................................
However, no matter which way they looked at the numbers, they put the district in a positive light. When numbers rose, it meant more arrests. When numbers dropped, it meant better crime prevention.

And that raises questions about the cornerstone of the program: accountability.
.......................


Let me just translate. If crime stats go down, JCPD take credit for cime prevention. If they go up, they take credit for increased arrests. They have ZERO accountability. Meaning they have no targets to hit. They answer only to the mayor that appoints them, and its in theirs and in the majors interests that they look good. They have zero independent external auditing nor do they set target reductions in crime.

No accountability. +200 new police officers in JCPD and zero accountability? How can you lose?

Great and helpful post from 2nd. A few observations.

Quote:

2nd wrote:
On Crime Being Up Or Down Or All Around ....

.............
I've been aware of police presence, in cars, on bikes, on corners, etc., mostly during the day, and sometimes, at night.


Yep. Me too. Though I see police every day at building sites, shopping areas and places like the Path. I really can't remember the last time I saw a police patrol on my block. I might see a poliice car once a week on my street. Crims see the same lack of presence.

Quote:

I'm not altogether satisfied with a discussion that leaves neighbors with the alternative of either calls for police or political resignations, ad hominem attacks against posters who express their concerns, or neighborhood watch groups being characterized as 'vigilante', which, for better or worse, they, most certainly, are not. Those participating in such groups should be applauded for taking some action. But those deciding not to go that particular route never should be given cause to remain silent about their anxieties of city-life.


Well put. I apologised for my "vigilante" remark...perhaps politically incorrect. I intended the meaning of "self-appointed watchgroup" rather than anything more sinister.

Quote:

I am most concerned about predatory crime.


Most crime is predatory. I think all the crime reported in the COMPUSTATS can be classified as predatory. Which ones arent?

Quote:

And the distance between (1) the debate on compilations of 'reported' crime statistics translating to methods which will increase actual safety and (2) neighbors who want to feel, and actually be safe, from such crime, is a great one, thus far, to cover. Statistics are wonderful to discuss, in the house/senate and in the tower of academia for policy decision-making, but I'm on the ground floor, with most of the rest, and statistical debate means little to one dealing with the aftermath of predation.


As someone also on the ground floor and a personal victim of local "predatory" crime, the statistics mean a lot to me. The statistics also mean a lot to local politicians, City spending and to the value of all our homes.

Quote:

In the meantime, I make NO claims as an expert in forms of martial training, but I did learn, early, that although one, naturally, may not have violent inclinations, one still may be subject to the violent inclinations of others, threatened or otherwise. I hope to convey that individuals, or groups, can take some measures to provide the deterrence or prevention 'factor' that police cannot provide to all, at all times:


I agree on the fact that people should take all personal and legal measures to ensure their own protection and security. I'd like to see the police providing more deterrence. I feel fairly safe walking the streets but I am from an area that is much less safe than JC. My girlfriend doesn't feel safe on the streets on her own, particular evenings.

Quote:

Awareness is key. Eyes open, all the time, scan the periphery. Get to know the neighbors. A smile, a nod, recognizing who resides in the vicinity and who doesn't, for starters. Travel in groups, to and from, if at all possible. No headphones or ipods should be seen, at night. They are common targets for theft, and they prevent your audio sensitivity, which is required when lights are low.

Attempt to walk the routes of high visibility, where lamps are working, even if it's an extra block or two. Be prepared to cross the street to stay in lit areas. Where car traffic is not too congested to make it dangerous, walk the middle of the street. If aware, you can always move laterally, between parked cars, back to the sidewalk. Heels are great, but sneakers are better. Combat boots are best. Sexy, and practical.

Take a cab, if and when you're not feeling safe for the walk home, it's not super-expensive. I've done it from the Grove St. PATH station, for a mere five blocks. Take cards/numbers for cab companies for later reference, when in need.

Have your cell-phone visible, and dialed in to the local dispatch (as I understand - please corrrect me if I'm wrong - 201 547 5477), ready to go. People appear to talk to themselves, via headsets on cellies, all the time. You can do this at night, as well. Also, not a bad measure to make intermittent phone calls to/from a friend's place, to ensure you're timing is correct.

Mace is illegal to purchase/possess in New Jersey, among many other items of potential protective value. OC (oleoresin capsicum), however, is not. Fox Labs, among some circles, is known to be the best. It is not an 'attack-stopper' in close-proximity; It may inhibit sight and cause debilitating sinus inflammation in an attacker. But be prepared to spray and run.


Great advice. I'd add...know where you're going. Know your exits. If you need to ...hit hard, real hard, and move fast. Though I'd recommend don't cross the street to avoid people that have already seen you. Shows you're scared and unprepared. Walk straight through them confidently and look them in the eye. If they mean you harm, they're gonna land on you anyway.

I'd also add it would be great if there were more police foot patrols that followed your advice on awareness, keeping eyes open, getting to know the neighbors , and carrying a big stick. And gun.

I would add that can Captain McDonough ask the umpteen people that have been burlarised, assaulted, cars broken into in Downtown JC, and worse, a lot of whom live within a few blocks of your precinct headquarters, whether they are comfortable with the level of policing you are providing?

You're "satisfied" and "comfortable". Is anyone else?

Seriously Capt McDonough. Go to the website below. Follow the link to "visualize incident data for Jersey City". Then put in any address you care - including your precinct addresses. Totallly shameful. Honestly I hope you get this - because I believe your heart is in the right place. Help us with solutions please.

From today's JJ ...this explains the huge disconnect between what Downtown residents want, and what Capt McDonough feels is needed. IMO Sam has it right.

Im really awaiting Saturday's issue, and hoping Comey has some positive and constructive suggestions, Looks like McDonough feels hes doing ok at the moment though.

Quote:

From todays JJ...............

"People are very concerned," Sam Stoia, vice president of the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association, said.

"People feel that we need more of a police presence on the streets, and we are not getting it. The city tries to hold an increase of taxes over our heads, but we are not satisfied with our return on our taxes now. We have sewer and flooding problems, and nothing this city has done has increased our home values."
............
"That does not seem adequate," Stoia said.


Quote:

McDonough, though, said he is satisfied with the level of resources, pointing to department numbers that show significant drops in stolen vehicles and burglaries from last year to this year.

"Of course you would always like more people," he said, "but I feel comfortable with what we have."

You can also go to:
http://www.nj.com/news/bythenumbers/

They have google maps on recent crime stats - type in the address and it can should recent nearby incidents.

I'd strongly advise against renting or buying any property without making sure it has security measures, and agree with other posters that you have your items insured. Worse case, for example a couple of years ago a woman was raped in an apartment block close to Hamilton Pk. The rapist climbed through an unsecured first floor window.

I'm sorry you've chosen to see that as a slur - that wasnt my intention. Where I have a problem ...it seems to be your way or the highway. No-one else is allowed to question local policing except through your org. That's what's wrong with your group.

That bustling activity - transportation and stores, for example - explains some of the high volume of cop calls, Capt. Brian McDonough, commander of the East District, said, noting, too, that the active neighborhood associations in the area also translate to many reports of suspicious activity.



By making that comment, its hard to work out if the Capt. is suggesting that the neighborhood associations are helping the situation or their efforts just 'translate' to many reports.

The comment can been seen as a derogative one!


FAB, the reporter, Jarrett Renshaw, did NOT use quotes but used a journalistic device of "characterizing" what the Captain said and then chooseing as a reporter/writer to only write what Jarret characterised as the Captain "noting":

"...that the active neighborhood associations in the area also translate to many reports of suspicious activity."

From a journalistic POV, your "FAB interpretation" of what Jarret wrote was "noted" by the Captain, is just that, your interpretation.

The article states a fact the reporter says was noted by the Captain: "...active neighborhood associations in the area also translate to many reports of suspicious activity."

Neither the Captain or the writer characterize what was stated as having a derogatory meaning. Only you and nugnfutz do, and perhaps others who don't read closely.

As I previously stated, anyone who has been to any of the 3years of monthly meetings the DJCW has held would know that the Captain has nothing but good things to say about ALL neighborhood groups and particularly the DJCW who the PD monthly reports in detail what transpired with activities in downtown JC.


Think the difference between you BM, myself and FAB...is that we're questioning the machine and trying to understand the stats and explanations. Might be that you're too close to the problem to challenge whats issued in the press. I respect what your personal intentions for the community. I think all 3 of us want to see our community as crime-free. You may not think that I nor FAB have the right to challenge where our tax dollars are spent if we're not personally involved actively in your DJCW or similar org. Sorry ...we have the right to challenge and question any publicly elected or appointed official. I want to know where and how my tax dollars are spent. Anyone that has any investment in this City has the same right. So back off YOUR personal attacks on both of us. Neither FAB nor I are spending your tax dollars or anyone else from JC. If and when we do, then you can hold us accountable.

And you've just illustrated why I have zero interest in joining your vigilante group.

I think that all parts of Jersey City ESPECIALLY the MLK corridor need more open space, more library branches, more community centers, after school centers, and recreation centers where children, families and teens can safely go to play, study and relax.

Many latch-key children have no properly supervised safe refuge until their parents get home from work. Very few parents can afford to stay at home with their children in this economy.

There, is a sad lack of amenities for families and youth who just want to lead normal, violent-free, crime-free lives.


I think it's a sad reflection of our 2-tier society that areas like MLK exist. I know both the City and the various voluntary agencies seem to doing their best to provide a number of things from the basics like food, clothing, shelter and security, as well as improving the long-term outlook through areas such as education and jobs. Structured lesuire and recreation should definitely be a priority. The challenge seems to be how to attract the inward investment in terms of funding and people's time.

From today's Jersey Journal a preview of Saturday's article..........

Saturday: The city's top cop wants to retool the department to meet today's challenges. But the changes would require more money from the city's taxpayers, and it's unclear whether there is the political will to push them through..


Guns that work? More street cameras? Improvements in communications and emergency call filtering? Auxiliary police? Higher taxes? Hopefully we can give credit to Comey for coming forward with proposals: its shows the JCPD at least recognise there is a serious set of issues to tackle.
Looking forward to reading the article.

Quote:

(Also from today's JJ in relation to Ward F......)

In addition, Comey said, the number of "high-priority" calls in the area puts a strain on "limited" police resources. Each of the city's four districts is staffed equally, he said, so when police respond to these calls, it leaves other areas vulnerable and without a police presence.


I'm not sure how to read this alongside McDonough's comment. Seems to indicate that despite the new emergency control center, call filtering and routing is still a huge issue. Maybe we'll get clarification in the Saturday article.

My agenda is pretty simple. I'd like the police to recognise there is a serious crime problem downtown and to increase their visibility on local streets.

Yes the JCPD work well with local neighborhood associations and yes I think that the local neighborhood associations do a great job. Encouraging improvement to street lighting and neighbors to be vigilent all round can and does help.

No better deterrent though than having cops on the beat.

I don't need to be an active member of any local vigilante group to report crimes if and when I see them. And I have reported crimes in progress leading to arrests.

As for parking tickets, nope, never got one. But the only time I see police patrolling my street is the little traffic buggy during street cleaning.

Join the police force to sort out the problem? No thanks. I pay enough in taxes for that, and I'd like my taxes spent well, so I have every right to "whine". Particularly when there continues to be serious crimes committed locally

For the stats, go to the NJ by the numbers site and type in any address.

As for being a "lamo" - behind the statistics there are real victims. Go tell that to the victims of the crimes including those listed below.

Behind that is Downtown, centered just off busy Newark and Jersey avenues.

That bustling activity - transportation and stores, for example - explains some of the high volume of cop calls, Capt. Brian McDonough, commander of the East District, said, noting, too, that the active neighborhood associations in the area also translate to many reports of suspicious activity.

The Newark Avenue strip, Downtown Councilman Steven Fulop said, can still be a dangerous place to walk at night, something he wants to change.

"We're trying to make Newark Avenue a place where people can feel comfortable walking all hours of the day. Today it is not," he said, noting that car break-ins are a particular problem his constituents have complained to him about.



Captain Brian McDonough. Are you seriously suggesting that the having neighborhood associations in the area make YOU look bad on the stats? The stats you publish to Compstat show rapes, muggings, burglaries and even homicides at similar level to other districts, and you have the nerve to blame neighborhood associations for the downtown stats??? Perhaps if you could publish the "correct" stats, we might get a better picture, but given previous history, I doubt JC is capable of compiling and publishing anything credible. The crime stats on Erie street alone, where you have the East district headquarters should be a source of shame for you and your dept.

JC is spending homeland security funds on licence plate readers to issue parking tickets, instead of trying to catch the muggers, burlglars, rapists and that roam the area at will.

Fulop - this isn't about better lighting and protecting cars from break-ins. Please go the the maps showing the types of crime and where they were committed. Then let's get our JCPD out patrolling those areas when and where the crimes are being committed, and not directing traffic at building sites.

I didn't read Healy nor local pols into this ancient history event. Though I would question the current conflict-of-interest in having the City police chief's wife running the off-duty JCPD assignments.

----------------------------------------------------------

RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS OF
HAMILTON PARK UNITE

Aggressive dogs + Apathetic Dog Owners = Angry Community

Are you one of the many responsible dog owners in the Hamilton Park area who is tired of being blamed for the irresponsible actions of a few?

Join me in forming the Responsible Dog Owners Association of Hamilton Park. Let?s work together to build a strong community of responsible dog owners.

The goals of our dog-focused Association will be to:

*Promote responsible, caring dog ownership and better behaved dogs in Hamilton Park and the surrounding community through education, training, recreation, and enjoyment.

*Create guidelines for acceptable dog/owner behavior in Hamilton Park and the surrounding community.

*Develop an association web site and online network of local dog owners.

*Advocate and lobby representatives on behalf of dogs and dog owners in the Hamilton Park community.

*Build and maintain good relationships with related organizations and the community-at-large.

*Sponsor dog-related forums, activities, and events.

If you share these goals, and are as crazy about your dogs as I am about mine, let?s make this happen. Please provide your name, your dog?s name, your address and email information on the sign-up sheet located in Walt?s Liquor Store on the corner of 8th Street and Jersey Avenue and I?ll follow-up.

Let?s get this association up and running!!!

Ava Thorin

Tips For Being A Good Dog Owner

Carry a leash
*Pick up and dispose of dog waste
*Do not leave dogs unattended
*Leash or muzzle aggressive dogs
*Control excessive noise
*Prevent digging and destructive behavior
*License your dog
*Always carry a bag, a spare and a share
*Let your dog off-leash only in safe areas
*Never let your dog get more than 20 feet away from you.

All this? yet no mention of any of the legal alternatives for off-leash activity (i.e. ? the dog-run, change to the leash law to permit dogs off-leash to some schedule)??...

How credible is a ?dog advocacy? group going to be if it?s unwilling to take on the tough stuff??...

I agree with Br6dR ? it does kind of sound more like a ?finger-wagging? group.


I think this is actually a good start. It has been carefully worded so as not to propose solutions - that's the job of the association itself. There is nothing in the objectives nor the tips that any dog owner should have an issue with, except mebbie the 20ft rule :). I'll stop by and sign up.

Seems you can't picnic in a JC public park in an area not designated as such. Enforce the sandwich laws!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
? 239-12. Picnic areas; camping; horseback riding.

No person in a park shall:

A. Picnic or lunch in a place other than those designated for that purpose. Attendants shall have the authority to regulate the activities in such areas when necessary to prevent congestion and to secure the maximum use for the comfort and convenience of all. Visitors shall comply with any directions given to achieve this end.

Nungfutz, your post comprises a bunch of falacies.
Green card holders cannot tell jury duty go f... itself. Actually, green card holders cannot take jury duty. So, for the few perverts who would enjoy it, and for all green card holders, there is NO choice.
Next: dual citizenship is de facto tolerated by the United States. People who get US citizenship and choose to keep their previous one too are not subject to any penalty.
Moreover, from our side, the propaganda has it that it that it is better to have a US citizenship than anything else. It's been years since the BBC started preaching about the Thailand problem - thousands of Brits are in jail there, with no fair defense, with no chance of doing their time at home, while most Americans are sent home where they are punished less severe. (Thailand laws are extremely tough.)
Also, I remember a string of DWI killings of East Europeans, from Poland to Bulgaria, by regular Americans. As soon as it happens, the Americans are flown home, where they are judged without witnesses (most East Europeans cannot afford to travel here, because it is expensive and visa are issued in a billion years) and acquitted. Do you think any country in the world would be able to save me from here, the same way?
Other than that, my main worry which would prevent me from getting the citizenship is a possible reintroduction of the draft. That is scary. Yesterday at the UN, even Mugabe had a point


1. Dual citizenship simply complicates your life:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual_citizenship

2. With US citizenship, yes, you get flown home from countries that have a good relationship with the US. That list of countries is becoming increasingly smaller. US passport holders are probably the most hated global travellers given recent events.

3. Jury duty notices seem to be sent to everyone that pays taxes - for some reason the US government have a hard time figuring out who is and isnt a citizen. The fallacy isnt whether a non-citizen can serve, the fallacy is that different branches of US government know what they are doing.

Thats not the way it works. Merrill's is regulated based on the type of business it conducts in the countries it trades. Merrill Lynch has banking operations that are regulated by the Fed - same with virtually every "investment bank".

The 2 biggest disincentives for people with Green Cards vs full citizenship are:

1. Forced Jury service. Green Card holders can tell the jury service demands to go F itself.
2. Abandonment of dual citizenship - why drop protections from another state for the limited and usually lesser citizen protections offered by the US?

Sooo... green card holders get the right to sit on juries and abandon protections from another state so they can vote for the machine or anti-machine? Duh!

Im not an expert, but i woulda thought u need to tackle gangs with the law and not the military. If local law enforcement can't handle the execution of the law, then there are grounds for outside forces. Atm, I fail to see where the national guard can help here without stronger laws.

There are multiple tiers of regulation that make the financial industry the most highly regulated industry aside from possibly the US DOD. The banking and finance industry are tightly regulated by multiple US bodies including NASDR, SEC, the Fed and laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Right to Financial Privacy Act and many other. US financial companies are also subject to Global laws and regulators such as Basle Banking laws in Europe and regional regulatory bodies. Personally i'd like to see something like Sarbanes-Oxley inflicted on all tiers of government.

Fulop's own employer holds itself to a high level of standards:

Given the recent arrests of corrupt pols in NJ I think Steve is ahead of the curve on this issue. Council members that vote no are inviting public and federal scrutiny. They better be damn sure they have nothing to hide.
