The pace of homicides -- nearly 60 victims in the first 108 days of the year -- suggests a pace that could exceed 200 by the end of the year. The city recorded 174 homicides in 2016, a rise from 164 in 2015 and from the low point of 150 in 2014.

As of April 14, only 13 of the 58 officially recorded homicides thus far in the year had been cleared (two by the Child Abuse unit), for a clearance rate of about 22 percent[27]. That figure is far below the national average of 61.5 percent or even the NOPD's own 43 percent in 2014, 35 percent in 2015 and 27 percent in 2016.
