Additional lights among best deterrents to crime

There is nothing someone preparing to commit crime hates more than light.

The City of Williamsport recently floated a $20 million bond and Mayor Gabriel J. Campana said $50,000 of it will be spent on replacement or addition of 100 streetlights with higher-wattage lights.

The lights are being placed in some important areas of Memorial Avenue, High Street and Wildwood Boulevard.

This addition is well-spent money. It can do nothing but help deter crime in those areas.
