Are these statistics up or down from previous months and from 2011?

Hi Shannon - I just became the Local Editor and started this column last month, thanks to the Perkiomen Township officials who offer statistics at their monthly meeting. There is not a big difference from last month (article here: http://patch.com/A-x86V), when there were 118 police incidents, 16 fire calls and 30 ambulance requests. I will continue to do this every month, and I will compare and contrast from month to month, as noteworthy changes arise. Thanks for the feedback, Brittany
