So where is all the crime occurring in our community? I recently obtained a copy of a Police Department report that shows the number of reports for each of the city’s four wards.
For 2008, Ward 3 topped all the others in the combined number of crime reports. Ward 3 consists of the city’s southeast quadrant, including the New Town historic district, the Railroad district, and Sixth, Seventh and Eighth streets. This ward had 981 reports last year, followed by Ward 4, the southwest quadrant, at 828.
