From the NY Post:
Serious crime went up again last week, and the NYPD is developing emergency strategies to tackle the sharp rise in murders and shootings this year.
Overall crime rose 3.5 percent for the week ending Sunday at midnight, compared to the same period in 2009, according to the latest figures.
The number of shootings -- up 19 percent this year -- remained constant last week, but there were 12 murders compared to 10 last year.
Burglaries were up 9.5 percent and robberies rose 8.2 percent.
Police brass have ordered commanders to bring in other units and manpower where violence is erupting.
They said they're confident that even with a thinning Blue Line, they can keep crime levels down to levels not seen since the early 1960s.
Underground, the NYPD and the MTA are scrambling to get their entire array of security cameras in working order. Only 2,270 out of 4,313 are currently in operation.
