This is happy news given the steep rise in crime rates across the country. Consistent with this news, things seem to have quieted down here in the North End after a busy January and February.
In related news from the Mayor's Office, the West Precinct won the 2nd annual precinct of the year award for having the greatest overall reduction in crime in 2005. The West Precinct is sponsoring a celebration on April 19 at the First Southern Methodist Church, 4409 Colorado Ave. at 6 p.m. The Sylvan Park Neighborhood Watch Group will be the host group for the celebration.
