2020 Crime stats report released by the Hoboken Police Department.

There was a major decrease in violent crime (down 16.4%), helped by the 20.6% decrease in Aggravated Assaults.

Property crimes and non-violent crimes increased by 14.6%. Those numbers could be attributed to unemployment and the pandemic’s economic issues.

Thank you to our Uniformed, Investigative, and Training Bureaus and those bureaus’ commanders, supervisors, detectives, patrol officers, and civilian staffs for setting an example in New Jersey.

Great work was done by all through a most grueling and unique year.
