      Getting charged with a crime is one step in due process, not an alternative to it.

      > On Tuesday, March 19, at about 6:15 pm, we got a call that a group of young boys and girls were throwing items at a person near 2nd and W Sts., NW. We went but were unable to find a victim. While we were investigating this matter, we located a person in the 100 block of Adams St., NW, who said that a group of young boys and girls had used the steps to his basement apartment as a spot to gather, and when he told them to leave, they threw fruit at his window.

Some of the kids ran off, but we were able to stop and identify a young man, who lived nearby.

      > Yesterday, Monday, March 25, officers in both the First and Fifth Districts got calls about a group of kids assaulting a woman near 2nd and Rhode Island Avenue, NW. Our 5D officers were on the scene of this event quickly, and we stopped a group of four women who we believed were involved. One of these girls was placed under arrest after being identified as one of the kids involved in the assault.

The listserv is a great way to gather and disseminate information, but sometimes neighbors post messages to the listserv but forget to call 911 to alert us, and without that call, we may be unaware of the activity.
