The 109th Precinct in Flushing has not escaped the citywide trend of increasing crime.
Deputy Inspector Keith Shine, the commanding officer of the 109th Precinct, told the precinct’s Community Council on Wednesday night that major crime between Jan. 1 and Feb. 12 was up 12 percent compared to the same period last year. The increase represents about 25 additional crimes, he added.
The precinct covers Flushing, Whitestone, College Point and Bay Terrace — and while crime was up it did not undergo a major spike like in other parts of the city.
