The city needs to hire more police officers and have the police more proactive. I think the city needs to do a better job with community policing as well. I personally think the city police need to be more aggressive when it comes to gangs and drugs. Start raiding the drug dealers homes and show them we mean business and will not tolerate having them in our city. Hiring more police officers will help being more aggressive towards the gangs and drug dealers. Maybe start a gang unit that targets gangs in the city. That's my two cents anyways.

I agree. But also keep in mind that crime is on a rapid downswing and the quality of life is improving especially downtown.

Don't measure crime by the number of murders. Just wait for some fresh bait in the shark tank atown.

Crime is spreading to areas once thought safe from center city. Have fun East and West side, the tide is coming. You are no longer safe when the niz starts next year.

With the mayor only taking care of political friends, crime is not less. Only the crime numbers that they want you to read. I live here and you know that crime everywhere in Allentown is increasing. I would leave but you can't get anyone with any brains to pay enough for your property to get a home in the suburbs. So you are forced to stay and live in fear for your families safety. Alarm system, LTC, stay home at night and make sure you have everything locked all the time. Drugs are rampant, prostration is on mosts corners in downtown and merchants are afraid of being robbed. It is not a pretty picture and it isn't getting better. The school system has more gangs and kids that graduate are unable to read or do a simple math problem or get a job. Most of the kids drop out or get passed through just to get rid of them. Code enforcement is a joke and the mayors political pals get exceptions for code violations. The illegals now outnumber the citizens. The problem is that if you work, abide by the law and are not wanting a hand out from every government program, you are the minority here in our fine city.
