New York Communities Share Crime-Fighting Grant

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Seventeen communities outside of New York City are sharing over $13 million in criminal justice grants under Operation Impact.

The funding allows for stepped up police patrols and investigations targeting high-crime areas.

Officials in the communities already utilizing the grant funds report index crime reductions of 9% in the first four months of this year compared to the first four months of last year.  Index crimes monitored by New York State and the FBI are murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft.

The municipalities getting Operation Impact grant money include Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Jamestown, Kingston, Newburgh, Niagara Falls, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Schenectady, Syracuse and Troy.
