One resident asked on Facebook recently: Is it my imagination or are we having more shootings in Frankford?
I was working on the crime statistics for the year at the time and had just confirmed what is obvious. Robbery and Aggravated Assault with firearms at reported from reports on OpenDataPhilly shows that combined they increased by 21% in 2015 compared to 2014.
The good news is that homicide declined by 46% and crime incidents overall went down by about 3%. Even burglary in total went down 3%. Rape was not reported in 2014, so no comparison is possible.
