Residents Say Its Getting Ugly Out There

Residents from three blocks in Frankford attended the PSA1 meeting on October 24th to ask for help in dealing with the problems.

The bad news: The drug dealing on the 4700 block of Griscom in becoming a problem again.  The 1500 block of Foulkrod is a circus after dark.  Neighbors on some parts of the 5000 block of Griscom are feeling intimidated by neighboring resident drug users.  The drug house on Foulkrod Street behind the Sugar and Spice store continues to be an after hours drug supermarket.

The good news: A lot of people were at the meeting to get help for their issues.  Residents from Haworth Street who attended last month’s meeting, did not attend this month so we hope things have stabilized over there.

Lt. Wood took notes while Officers Andrew and Austin offered their insights.  Officer Austin the the “Beat Cop” on Frankford Avenue.

Lt. Wood closed the meeting with burglary prevention tips.  The next meeting of PSA1 will be on November 27th at 7PM at Aria Hospital.  If you have crime or even quality of life issues, attend these meetings.
