Public Safety Committee reported that based on Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) statistics, crime within Ambridge Borough has decreased between years 2015 and 2016 by -12.12% during the March council meeting.
Ambridge Police Chief James Mann shared that "It's the totality of circumstances with aggressive police work, assistance from outside agencies like at Attorney General's office and all the drugs arrest that was made. When you add it all up you get less crime."
"We are particular about getting accurate UCR reports because that is how we got guys hired under grants" said Mann. "The extra full-time guys, the extra patrols, the multiple arrests, the partnership, it is the totality of everyone. "
"I rather see it go down 12% then up 12%."
