Crown Heights – Gets A Dozen New Cops


    Crown Heights – neighborhood that saw murders double last year amid a citywide drop in homicides has added a dozen new cops to battle the rise in violence.
    The rookie cops assigned to the 71st Precinct will focus on trouble spots in southern Crown Heights, particularly on the weekends, to stave off shootings, serious assaults and murders. They’ll also concentrate on areas around schools where teen-on-teen crime fueled a 12% spike in robberies last year.
