Subway crime rates dropped in 2003 to their lowest levels in more than 30 years, according to the New York Post.
Subway crime rates fell in five of seven major categories, including robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny and all major felonies.
Robberies fell 2%, assaults dropped 5%, burglaries fell 60% and grand larcenies went down 9%, NYPD statistics show.
On an average day, there are 8.7 felonies committed on the trains and in the city's 468 subway stations. That number is down from an average of 17.4 in 1997.
The full statistics will be unveiled by the NYPD Jan. 26 at a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) committee meeting.
"We are pleased with the continuing drop in crime," said MTA Executive Director Katherine Lapp. "The NYPD and MTA are doing an outstanding job."
