INTERNATIONAL - November 26: the day violent crime in New York took a break

New York City achieved a rarity on Monday 26 November 2012 – for 24 hours there was not a single report of a person being shot, stabbed or subjected to violent crime, police have revealed.

New York police department chief spokesman Paul Browne said it was "first time in memory" that the city's police force had experienced such a peaceful 24 hours.

It comes at the end of year when the city is on target to have its lowest murder rate since 1960.

While crime is up 3% overall, including a 9% surge in grand larceny that police attribute to a rash of smartphone thefts, murder is down 23% year on year, the NYPD said.

Tom Repetto, author of American Police, 1949-2012, said he could not recall such a crime-free day as Monday. "In a city of 8 million people, this is extremely rare," he said.
