“Congratulations to our newly promoted Commanding Officer. Job well done Deputy Inspector Nunez!” @NYPD114Pct said via Twitter on March 27.

Mayor Bill de Blasio praised Commissioner James O’Neill and all the men and women of the NYPD for their hard work as March and first quarter crime statistics were discussed at a press conference held on April 4.

“Continuing to make progress month after month—this is not easy work. I want to emphasize that,” said Mayor de Blasio celebrating the continuing success of the NYPD.

“This takes a lot of guts and a lot of hard work, a lot of brains, a lot of commitment,” he said.

“When you compare the first quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2017, overall crime is down 4.1 percent (and) it’s down in six of the seven major categories,” said Commissioner O’Neill at the conference. “And murders are down in this first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of 2017 (by) 13.6 percent (57 vs. 66).

O’Neill credited neighborhood and precision policing for the steady reduction in crime and the accompanying reduction in arrests. “Arrests are down 9.2 percent,” said O’Neill.

NYPD Chief of Crime Control Strategies Dermot Shea also cited a 12 percent reduction across the five boroughs in calls to 911 regarding shots being fired. “Shooting incidents are down 3 percent. That’s 141 versus 146 (incidents),” he said.”

Deputy Inspector Nunez was promoted at NYPD headquarters during a ceremony celebrating the accomplishments of department members at which Commissioner O’Neill told them, “All of you took this job to make a difference, to do good, and you certainly do that—every single day!”

Deputy Inspector Nunez took command of the 114th Precinct in September 2017 and joined NYPD in 1996.

Year-to-date in the 114th Precinct, robbery is down 21.2 percent (41 vs. 52), rape is down 12.5 percent (7 vs. 8), felony assault is down 7.3 percent (76 vs. 82), burglary is down 4.4 percent (43 vs. 45), and grand larceny is down 2.8 percent (174 vs. 179).

One murder has been recorded and shooting incidents are up (4 vs. 1) through April 1. Grand larceny auto is up 73.7 percent (33 vs. 17). Transit crime is level (7 vs. 7) and housing crime is down 16.2 percent (37 vs. 43).

Deputy Inspector Nunez congratulated 114th Precinct Officers Faught and Stukes as the precinct’s Cops-of-the-Month at the March 27 meeting of the Precinct Community Council.
