The latest crime-update email from the University City District reports that for the month of June there was a decrease in crime, which is always what UCity landlords like to hear, especially as students begin to look for housing in July and August. Crime in the area is monitored and controlled not only by the Philadelphia Police Department, but by UCD, the Penn Police Department, the Drexel Police Department, and a host of other security details and town watches and public safety units from all the other institutions in the area. If you think about it, it should be the safest place in the city. Below, more stats.
