Police Commissioner Bratton on the Brian Lehrer Show, WNYC

Police Commissioner William J. Bratton talks about the latest crime reports for the city and new criminal laws on the Brian Lehrer Show.

Commissioner Bratton started by running through the statistics: shootings are down by about 22%; homicides down by 10%; even the slashings that garnered a lot of attention at the beginning of the year are starting to trend down.

“We’re having a good year, which is a continuation of 25 good years in New York where crime has been trending down,” he said.
