I would live to see statistics on the following: Apprehensions Arrests Disposition of sentence Time served I have been the victim of a major home burglary and theft from automobile in Lower Merion. No proactive communication from LMPD. I would like to know how many citizens want to know effectiveness of our law enforcement personnel. I for one suspect they are far better at vehicular management and revenue side activities vs combatting real crime that disrupts lives and causes serious economic losses. RCW
