Queen Village Robbery Suspect Sought, Philadelphia Police Academy New Program, Homeless Vets Housing
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

The Philadelphia Police Department is seeking the public's help in identifying the man they say is responsible for two robberies in the Queen Village section of South Philadelphia this month. The first incident occurred on June 16, at about 6:15 a.m. The second incident happened the next morning at 7:25am. The man is described as black, about 20 years old, with a medium build and complexion.

Thirty Philadelphia Police Academy recruits who are graduating on Friday have been doing simulation training for weeks. It’s all part of a new program which started this spring to teach them what kind of situations they may encounter on the streets. Instructors play bad guys and push the recruits to make decisions in certain scenarios. Academy administrators hope it is scary enough to save lives when this is no longer an exercise.

The City of Philadelphia teamed up with the South Philadelphia social services group CATCH, Inc. to provide housing for homeless veterans. Located in the 1200 Block of South 15th Street in the Point Breeze section of the city, the two buildings contain 13 one-bedroom apartments and two efficiencies that are handicap accessible. Mayor Nutter says the $3 million project not only helps veterans, but also puts 124 Philadelphians back to work.
