Muni's efforts to crack down on crime appear to be paying off.

The San Francisco Examiner reports crime has dropped after spiking in the first four months of the year.

The report says in May and June, there were 124 incidents reported, compared to 569 incidents January through April.

Muni attributes the decrease to more aggressive and targeted deployment of public safety resources.

This comes as San Francisco supervisors are expected to approve legislation increasing penalties for crimes committed on Muni and around Muni stops.
