According to data by the FBI, the crime rate in Nassau is average for all American cities and towns. Within New York, it is lower than approximately 26% of the communities. However, due to the county’s recent plan to merge police stations in order to save money, major crimes have increased in 2013. Communities are not getting the attention from police that they used to receive. For example, grand larceny and burglary are up in the areas of Great Neck, and Roslyn.

If you live in Nassau County, it is important to know that your police department takes on the unusual practice of posting the mug shots of DWI (driving under the influence) offenders as press releases on their website.
