Trenton Homicides Remain High

Though the number of killings in Trenton are down 37.5 percent compared to recent years, there are still a lot of homicide-related cases that make the overall percentage of homicides troublesome for authorities. “There are things that no matter how prepared you are, they’re just out of your control,” Trenton Police Director Ernest Parrey said. “It’s out of your hands.”

Trenton’s murder rate of 15.4 is more than twice that of major U.S. cities such as Philadelphia, which stands at 7.4 and even Chicago, which comes in at 7.2 for each 100,000 people.

Trenton’s population-adjusted murder rate of 15.4 for each 100,000 people is statistically tied with Camden, where the murder rate is 15.6, also adjusted for population. And Trenton still eclipses Newark’s murder rate of 13.2 for each 100,000.

“We still have a long, long way to go,” Parrey said.

Efforts to reduce homicide include the Trenton Violence Reduction Strategy, a $1.1 million social services-based program geared to get young people out of gang culture with job training programs and family assistance.

That program started with 21 people before a handful dropped out or were removed from the program for parole or probation violations, Hoffman said. No one who entered the program has committed any new crimes, Hoffman said.
