This article and my conversation with MPD indicate that certain categories of crime (burglary and robbery) are way up in Dupont: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/property-crime-shows-alarming-rise-in-the-district/2011/03/27/AF5xbAlB_story.html
Attached is a crime tips document that Commander Reese sent in response to my query as to whether there was anything more he had to add to (or differ with) the Post story. There’s nothing surprising in there.
On Tuesday April 19th, citizens and business representatives will meet from 7 to 8:00pm at MPD 3D station (1620 V St.) for the monthly PSA 208 - Dupont/Kal Public Safety Meeting. (Held on the 3rd Tuesdays for Dupont and Kalorama-Sheridan issues and still in the 3D building even though our police work out of 2D.)
