City schools confiscating more weapons than police data says


City schools have confiscated far more weapons from students than previously believed, The Post has found.

School officials recorded 2,485 separate instances when staff took guns, knives and other potentially deadly objects from kids in the 2014-15 school year, and 2,373 times in 2013-14, according to records The Post obtained under the Freedom of Information Law.

But the NYPD reports seizing only 1,678 weapons in the 2014-15 school year — 32 percent fewer than the Department of Education’s tally in the same period. In the previous school year, the NYPD reports seizing 1,347 weapons — or about 44 percent fewer than the DOE recorded.
