Couple of youngins being immature. You all act like Malvern is comparible to the streets of Harlem. You all should fund the "over-powering" presence of the Malvern Police department, not the entire borough. Women takes a nap in car, and there is police presence and public awareness issued. Give me a break!

Broken windows theory. Broken windows are indicative of future and more serious issues. Keep the little things under control to prevent big things.

Well that is just it. Keeping the little things under control help reduce the bigger things. It may not be the kids smoking pot that are the "big" issue. But, if they move to stronger stuff it is an issue. Then once they are hooked they need money to buy so now they steal...it is a cycle and one that always started small and usually left unchecked. But often grows fast until it can no longer be stopped.

Okay, good point. However, this broken windows theory could also be applied to the presence of the malvern police. Whats next? Door to door curfews? Camera's at all intersections? No bars in Malvern? I like walking down the safe streets of the bureau. I just don't want to be forced to hold hands with a police officer everytime I come to an intersection.

Maybe you should listen to the true,long lived Malvern Boro residents not the new comers to the neighborhood.
