The 114th Precinct has faced a spike in burglaries since the beginning of the year, according to CompStat.

The increase is due to a string of home burglaries in which police say the suspects gain access to the roofs of apartment buildings, walk down fire escapes and enter homes through opened or unlocked windows, according to published reports.

For the 28-day period over the last month ending February 23 there was a 115 percent increase in burglaries with a total of 43 incidents, compared to 20 in the same period last year, according to NYPD statistics.

To find out more information, residents can call the 114 Precinct’s Crime Prevention Bureau at 718-626-9324.
