Crime Takes a Break in North End / Waterfront

The good news is that overall crime incidents are down 13.5% year-to-date in the North End / Waterfront area, according to statistics provided by Boston Police. With 249 total reported incidents through October, more than half are in the “Larceny” category. Most larcenies are break-ins to motor vehicles on the streets to steal GPS, electronics, briefcases, laptops and other valuables.

North End crime statistics for the 30 days ending November 3, 2011 are shown below. Larcenies were down to only 3 in the past month versus 10 at this time last year. There were two robberies, one on Fleet St. and the other on N. Washington St. Three addresses reported break-ins including Boston Gliders on Commercial St. and two residences, one on Henchmen St. and the other on Salem St.

Thanks to North Ender Alexa Hill for attending on behalf of and providing this information. The next North End Public Safety Committee meeting will be held on December 1, 6:30pm at the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 N. Bennet Street. Meetings are run by District A-1 Boston Police Captain O’Rourke and open to the public.
