Crime is down?

Do we constantly have to be barraged by the false numbers coming from UFD? The taxpayers are smarter than this. Watch Labella now request more funding from the inept council. He will present the "crime is down case" and the ducks will follow. Taxpayers are sick of this BULLSHIT! Does City Hall have a clue? We need a full investigation of the no-show jobs in public safety. There are plenty.

It seems like LaBella is taking all the credit that "crime is down". I wonder if he would be willing to walk the streets of Cornhill or West Utica at 10PM some night around the 1st of the month when the Welfare checks come out and the hoodlums have cash in their pockets to buy their booze and drugs. Crime might be down in North Utica and the upper part of South Utica -BUT- according to the crime maps, nothing has changed in the rest of this City.

LaBella is trying to give his buddy Dave something positive he can use in his Campaign as we all know Dave's record of successes as Mayor of this City is in the gutter.

Despite the fact you may not like the Chief for whatever reason, crime may be down. The Chief doesn't do the street work the men and women of the department do. I for one feel they do a great job and deserve praise rather than ridicule.

I have nothing against the chief. He uses the phrase "crime is down" to add to the already over-inflated police department. He will ask the comic council to add more people, and like puppy dogs, they will oblige. Trust me, the dept in inflated. I know!

North Utica is safe because most of the homes over here are owner occupied. The ones that can be rented are not only expensive, but the Landlords live near by and keep a close eye on their tenants. It is the North Uticans that keep crime down in North Utica - NOT the Police who are seldom seen.

crime is not down by all means. its up and keeps rising. i moved out of utica in 04 and dred going there whenever i need to. i cant believe the bullshit that goes on in that city. every person within the city government will not and does not take a blame for anything, they will always pass it on to another person. joke. upd was at one time an honered pd by the state of ny. of course its when all the old timers were on the road. now, we have guys that i personly know that were and still are the biggest druggies and crooks in the city lol. i cant believe it. i wanna be a cop!

Yes you're right, that's exactly what we do when we hear shots, we run the other way...you're a moron.

"I'm pleased to announce that according to our numbers, crime is down in Utica. We're doing a great job in providing you with exemplary public safety! Oh, ahhh...no, no, I'm sorry...it seems that crime is up again...I'm going to request that five more officers be hired so that we can ensure your public safety once again...
