Crime in CT is down to its lowest point since 1967, and the state has the largest reduction in violent crime in any state over the last four years, according to new statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
He noted that Chicago, which has been experiencing an unprecedented spike in murders over the past several years, was responsible for about 20 percent of the national net increase in homicides.
While the violent crime rate remains at near historic levels, the increases come as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has warned of an impending crime surge and launched programs meant to target gangs and the drug trade as a way to stem the uptick.

Chicago led the nation in murders in 2016, with 765 people killed - more than double New York's homicide rate - though the IL city has a much smaller population.
In each of the specific crime categories - both for property and violent crimes, the total number of offenses reported declined, with two exceptions: robberies and burglaries. Some other cities included in the group's data had smaller increases, including Nashville, which reported 83 homicides, up from 79 the year before, and El Paso, which reported 21 killings, up from 19 the year before.
"Chicago saw about a 50-percent increase in its homicide rate past year", he said. The city is continuing that this year, with 192 murders reported through September 17, down from 250 at the same point a year earlier.
"This report highlights how Connecticut's anti-crime and anti-violence initiatives are working to make residents and communities safer", said Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, also in a statement. The number of reported homicides has tended to fluctuate from year to year over the last decade. "There were dire warnings from police, only to have crime then continue to drop", Gelb said.
