Crime Alert Issued

( – Confirming liberals have turned the Big Apple into a huge crime hub, the New York Police Department issued an alert due to the alarming rise in crime within Central Park.

NYPD based its warning on the staggering 350% surge in reported robberies this year compared to the same timeframe last year.

According to NYPD Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey, most of these incidents, 18 so far this year compared to four last year, happen in the evenings and mainly target electronics like phones and high-end headphones.

Additionally, grand larceny has also increased. Grand larceny is the theft of personal items like a phone snatched from one’s hand or belongings taken from a park bench without causing physical harm.

Twelve cases were reported in the first four months of this year, up from 8 in the same period last year.

Although there have not been any serious injuries, the rise in crime in such a key area has raised concerns among both tourists and local visitors.

Maddrey stated the NYPD remained committed to the public, noting, “This is one of the most iconic locations in NYC, it’s heavily used, all types of events happen here … and with that, we have an obligation to make sure the community knows what’s going on. This helps us increase public safety.”

In response to the escalating crimes, police have boosted their presence in the park and have been actively working with the community to raise awareness.

They have expanded their efforts beyond the park’s boundaries by collaborating strategically with four neighboring precincts and the Central Park Precinct.

The NYPD has also increased patrols both on foot and via mobile units and has enhanced camera surveillance.

Assistant Chief Ruel Stephenson of Manhattan North added, “We’re using all resources available in the NYPD to address this. We’ve increased camera surveillance.”

“We’re also utilizing our auxiliaries on weekends to address the condition here in the park. Rest assured, all potential park-goers should feel safe using the park,” Stephenson added.

The NYPD did not provide specific reasons for the rise in park crimes compared to last year. Instead, they are focusing on their ongoing efforts to ensure public safety and prevent further incidents.
