Two more homicides last week brings us to 29 for the year so far, an increase of 32% compared to 2021 and an increase of 93% since 2019.

Carjacking (up 450% relative to 2019, 78% relative to 2021) is still our biggest problem at the moment. We have had 66 so far in 2022.

Shootings are still sharply higher (+220%) relative to 2019, but have only increased slightly since 2020 (+8%) and 2021 (+19%).

Mardi Gras season is upon us, stay safe out there everyone!
