The CHN Security Program has played an integral part in helping to reduce crime in Carnegie Hill over the past 19 years. It was started in 1996, one year before the NYPD began using CompStat to track crime. The 19th Precinct recently released these statistics that show how much crime has fallen in our area since CompStat began keeping records.
- 2010 to 2011 – Crime Down 2%
- Since 2001 – Crime Down 51%
- Since 1994 – Crime Down 84%
The CHN patrol car and guards have been credited by the NYPD with contributeing to the dramatic decrease in crime in Carnegie Hills.
To improve security even more, the CHN program was expanded last year to provide a foot patrol in the area around the 86th Street subway station weekday afternoons and evenings. The foot patrol has been an added deterrent, and every effort is being made to turn this pilot program into a continuing supplement to the NYPD coverage. CHN and Integrated Security Systems have been working to enlist the financial support of the commercial enterprises on 86th Street as well as the buildings not yet participating in the program that are on the blocks covered by the foot patrol: 86th to 88th Streets, Fifth to Third Avenues.
