Assaults On NYPD Officers Rise 32% As Criminals Feel Emboldened

Published on

New York City’s police officers have reportedly suffered 32 percent more injuries in 2023 than they did in 2022, as crime has plagued their communities.

The New York Post published an article on Saturday citing data from the New York City Police Department.

The outlet reported that between Jan. 1, 2019 and March 31, 2019, citywide, 1,251 off-duty and on-duty police officers were injured by people who used physical force against them. This is compared to the 949 injuries in the first quarter, 2022.

1179 injuries were categorized as minor. Nearly 50 were considered “substantial”, requiring the victim to seek medical attention at a hospital.

25 victims were also deemed “serious”, requiring them to be admitted in a hospital.

The Post published images of injured officers being treated by medical professionals.

One person wrote, “WTG New York!” Police work is already difficult enough.”

“Recruitment, morale and officers leaving and retiring at a record pace. In your infinite wisdom you chose to ignore the safety of citizens and put political correctness ahead. Well done! “Now everyone can feel good and live in fear of the collapse,” said the user.

The city’s officers are reported to be resigning in record numbers as the crime rate is on the rise.

Another commented, “This is the result of a democrat pro-criminal stance.”

A report claims that a suspect approached a NYPD officer behind her and hit her with a bottle in April.

ABC 7 reported that an NYPD officer suffered injuries when a driver fled from a traffic check several times.

A NYPD Transit Bureau Officer told The Post that he was also injured recently, but did not express shock about the data.

According to him the leadership wants more arrests but suspects are not afraid of going to prison.

He added that lawmakers don’t offer any assistance to police, saying, “We can be at the train station, and they could jump over the turntile right in our face.” “This is the atmosphere [created by lawmakers].”

Joseph Giacalone, adjunct professor and retired NYPD sergeant, was shocked to hear about the increasing number of officer assaults. He blamed the bail reform for the increase and claimed that criminals feel empowered in such situations.

They know that they won’t be going to Rikers. They know that they won’t be facing any real-time. They just keep on churning out these gangsters and the police have to deal it,” he stated in an interview with The Post.
