Crime Stats Show NY Safer

Albany, NY – For the tenth straight year, New York State saw a drop in major crimes. Figures released by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services show the number of major crimes in the state dropped 3-point-1 percent in 2003. While the governor says the figures prove that New York's tough policies have been effective at reducing crime, he and others, say more needs to be done. More from North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley.
