Williamsport strides against crime

Thank you for your recent editorial on improvements in the crime rate in Williamsport. I’ve attached some research that I’ve done using the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting data.

In brief, Williamsport has experienced a 26% reduction in the crime rate in the past 15 years and a 58% reduction in the number of crimes in the last 20 years! I think it’s important that we recognize how safe Williamsport has become and how it continues to improve.
