Frankford is by no means, crime free.  We continue to see rampant drug use and sales and the violence that is connected to that trade continues to be a problem that will drive good people away and keep good people from moving here.  But, that problem exists in every part of the city to a degree. Until the cause of that problem is addressed, we are just pushing it from one neighborhood to another. Thanks to the cops who continue to try to do a good job under difficult circumstances. Below are the details of the report.
