Increased Police Presence on 15th Street

24 Aug 2017 2:24 PM | Deleted user

The issue of criminal activity in the area around 15th Street, from Market to Pine Streets, has been a matter of concern for some residents.  Many people are particularly worried about drug activity occurring in this area from 11pm to 3am from Thursday through Saturday nights.

CCRA is pleased to report that the new Captain of the Philadelphia 9th Police District, Robert Ritchie, has been able to secure much needed extra police resources in this area.  That is something not easy to do in a city, like Philadelphia, with tight budgets, and in a police district that is quite large.  As a result, the police have been able to increase arrests in the area around 15th Street.

Residents with specific concerns about the 15th Street Corridor or other policing issues are invited to attend the monthly 9th District Town Hall, which is held at the Precinct located at 401 N. 21st Street (by 21st Street and Pennsylvania Avenue).  The CCRA Government Relations Committee regularly sends two (2) members to attend these meeting

We will keep you apprised.
