And this should be the first thing people read in the patch because? Joe, enough with what the Bensalem Police are doing. We need to encourage people to come to Bensalem not be scared. Bensalem has so much to offer and the Police are doing a great job.

I actually find what Bensalem Police are doing to be helpful & is one of the first articles I read on Patch. I have a 16-year old & it's good to know what's going on & crimes in our area since I don't subscribe to our local newspaper. Patch also does a great job of emphasizing what Bensalem has to offer.

I think the crime stats in the paper are important. Everyone hates Philly due to crime stats etc., so let the truth be told. Even so, a great deal of Bensalem crime is never reported anyway!

Matthew, That is a pretty bold statement about "a great deal of Bensalem crime is never reported anyway!" Do you have facts to substantiate that statement?

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I receive regular incident reports from Bensalem police and local State Police. I agree that it's important to inform the public about these police matters. But I also try to cover important business, school and community news as well. If you have a story idea or news tip, email me at joe.hart@patch.com. Thanks, JH

I think its very productive because it proves we have a great police force. They are on top of their game. People should feel safe coming to Bensalem. Joe, your doing a great job with reporting both police activity and whats going on in the community.
