    Thanks for posting the monthly crime statistics of the Frankford/Northwood area. It’s important that the people in our community be made aware of these criminal activities.

    Thanks for making me. You’re right its important as long as I can provide information of value. Do you think it should be more often. The Northeast Times does it every two weeks.
