October Crime Report for the 15th District PSA1

Thanks to the folks at opendataphilly.org we have the crime report,  PSA1 includes the area from the Boulevard to the River between the Frankford Creek and Bridge Street.  That takes in Frankford and Bridesburg.

Theft from vehicles continues to be a problem as we move into the cooler weather.  October was the highest of the year with 55.  Burglary on the other hand went down.  Could it be that there are fewer open windows to attract burglars attention?  There was another homicide during the month.  There is a summary below and this is a link to the detail file that shows you where those thefts were.
