Statistically, the most serious crimes are down 11 percent in JP for 2014. That's according to Boston Police Sgt. Beth Leary, who passed along that information at Monday night's Jamaica Pond Association meeting. Leary, who closely tracks crime in the E-13 police district, said it was a "really good year" and that JP's result was "one of the best in the city."
