Hoboken Police See Drop in Crime

Hoboken Police See Drop in Crime

Hoboken is safer, according to Chief Ken Ferrante, who announced a 10.1% reduction in overall crime compared to 2017.

Ferrante thanked officers for their commitment to making residents and visitors as safe as possible. He also thanked Mayor Ravi Bhalla and the City Council for their cooperation.

Mayor Bhalla, in turn, pledged his gratitude and support to the HPD.

The announcement of these statistics came a day after the City of Hoboken and HPD posted signs dissuading visitors from coming to Hoboken for the 4th of July Fireworks, citing logistical shortcomings and insufficient resources, setting off a firestorm among the city’s retail and hospitality sector.
