The extent of crime generally, and shootings in particular, in Jersey City is difficult to assess. Without explanation, the Fulop administration stopped publishing monthly CompStat crime data in June of 2019.
New York City and Newark residents have access to weekly crime data, including shootings, from weekly CompStat reports posted on their respective websites.
