They would count it where it happened, not where the person who committed the crime lives.

What do you mean? It shows assault and homicide, but not rape (I guess they factor that into assault).

So the map doesn't include anything other than crime reported to the county police departments and no violent crime.

That leaves out a good portion of Nassau (which has several village PDs) and the entire east end, which is patrolled by town police departments. Although they must include some, because Glen Cove is listed and it has it's own police department. The few listed in places like Hempstead, Amityville, etc. I'd chalk up to what WJFM mentions - address on the report was by ZIP code, not actual municipality.

Still a great resource, but those are it's limitations.
It's showing Malverne, Rockville Centre and Lynbrook ...

Yes and no.

What's the population density? Are the towns the same size in square miles? Urban or rural? Nature of crimes?

If it's 40 petty crimes, vs 20 crimes of a more serious nature, I might lean toward the larger population.

Where can I find that web page ?

which town is better in your opinion ?
A town with 10000 residents and 20 crimes OR another with 20000 residents and 40 crimes ?

Hmmmm that is an excellent little nugget Zulu.
Thanks for pointing that out


How could a town like I dunno.....Lake Ronkonkoma have 20k people and 121 crimes while a town like maybe Rocky Point have 10k people have only like 15?


Could it be that Lake Ronkonkoma has 8X as much crime as Rocky Point.
Im no statistician but that does seem a tad odd?

Maybe if I combine the towns of Rocky Point/Sound Beach along with Lake Ronkonkoma/Ronkonkoma (Theyre the same towns ...right?) maybe it'll look a little better...maybe Im wrong...who knows?Ill leave that up to the experts.

That is an interesting point Zulu.Thanks for bringing it up.

Don't worry about me. I do enjoy raping and pillaging your local roads on my motorcycles though.

I was thinking more on the lines of New Cassel, you should check it out. For the home prices, its a steal. I'm just saying that this report is very accurate though, if not then its hard to depend on the numbers....

And you are very welcome !
