Harrisburg’s police chief said crime is going down in the city.

At a crime forum Wednesday night at the Camp Curtin YMCA, Chief Tom Carter announced the city has had 90 fewer violent crimes than this time last year.

Carter said the department has gotten better at engaging the community and officers are doing patrols in the most dangerous areas.

“You can look at numbers and you can beat your chest about the numbers because they are down. I am not satisfied. We can do better. Harrisburg can do better and we will do better. Everything takes time,” Carter said.

There’s a plan to add five more crime cameras in the city.  They should be installed by the end of the summer.
