Crimes reported dropped in July compared to the same period in 2015. It may be partly explained by the shortage of police during the Democratic Convention as well as the necessity of implementing a 2 man to a car policy for a period of time.
We still stand at 8 homicides so far this year in Frankford. Six of those in PSA1 and 2 in PSA2 which in Frankford is between Bridge Street and Cheltenham Avenue.
When we have a look at the August numbers, it will give a better view on whether that drop was due to less crime or fewer officers available to take make a report.
