Accuracy of Crime Statistics

As required by its Charter, New York City issues an annual Mayor's Management Report that includes information about the performance of City agencies. We audited the accuracy and reliability of the major crime statistics included in the Report. We found that these statistics are supported by records maintained by the New York City Police Department, and on the basis of our audit tests, we conclude that these records are accurate, complete and reliable.
