Welcome our new Police Captain!

    7th District captain talks police-community partnership
    When Robert Ritchie entered the 7th Police District headquarters at Bustleton and Bowler, he felt like he was returning home. The 7th District captain stepped in to act as interim captain for a few months last year while then Capt. Michael Gormley (now an inspector) was away. This time, though, it's permanent.

    LED streetlights are coming to Philadelphia. Will they mess with our sleep?
    Walk down a Philadelphia street at night and most likely, you will find the city lit in a warm yellow glow. The familiar cast comes from high-pressure sodium lights - the conventional breed of streetlamp common in the city. But soon, those yellow nights will be a memory.
