Description

The Philadelphia Police Department has been misreporting the number of city crimes to the state police and the FBI, counting thousands of offenses that occurred in one year as if they happened in another. For the past 30 years, police officials admitted, their crime counts have been based on when data is entered into their computer system rather than when the crimes actually occurred.
