The Framingham Police Department (FPD) just released a snapshot of downtown crime data, which revealed a drastic reduction in reported crime from 2015 to 2016.
Overall, there was a 75.8% decrease of reported crimes from 2015 to 2016 in downtown Framingham.

We encourage you to come to downtown Framingham during the day or night, just as we do! Not only will you add "more eyes on the street", but you will also enjoy the bright lights, smooth sidewalks, friendly people, and the cultural ambiance. Please continue to support our Fire Department, Auxiliary Police Force, Emergency Medical Services, Department of Public Works, and of course, our Police. These departments work together vigilantly to create a safe, walkable downtown where everyone can really enjoy life! Special thanks to FPD Crime Data Analyst, Kate Curtis-Bozio, and FPD Public Information Officer, Lt. Grigas, for supplying this important data to the Framingham Downtown Renaissance. We have also placed a new grant request for complimentary security features.
