RE: [MPD-5D] Re: MPD-5D Increased Patrols Assigned to Recent Homicide Areas
I have increased patrols in the Brookland area and will continue to do so. Historically this area has been plagued with robberies during the holiday season. We have extra evening personnel in that area in hopes to make arrest and combat the issue. Please let us know if any suspicious activity is observed in the area and be cautious when traveling in the area at night.

Per the statement below, can you please specify which neighborhoods the increased patrols are going into, and the time table for when they are going to be actually in action on the street, if not already mobilized as of today's date?
As well, 502 robberies at gunpoint have gone up dramatically, including missed shots fired at point blank range this past week at a resident on Newton and 14th. Fortunately, it did not result in a homicide. Is the criteria for increased patrol determined from 'preventative measures' -- meaning, crime activities with weapons, or from 'cure measures' -- unfortunately only after homocides happen does the are get increased police presence. Please explain.
Thank you in advance.

Increased Patrols Assigned to Recent Homicide Areas
Chief of Police Cathy L. Lanier announced today that the Metropolitan Police Department is increasing patrols in neighborhoods where homicides have recently occurred.
Officers will increase visibility in those neighborhoods by enhancing patro l presence through the utilization of increased vehicle, bicycle and foot patrols. The department's Violent Crimes Branch continues to pursue leads in a number of recent homicides which remain under active investigation. At this time there is no conclusive evidence that these incidents are connected or that the victims in these cases were randomly targeted.
"Violence of any type will not be tolerated. Residents deserve safe communities, and they should expect nothing less. Detectives will pursue every lead until we find those responsible for these murders, said Chief Lanier."
The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to the person or persons who provide information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia .
Anyone with information regarding any of these cases is asked to call police at (202) 727-9099.
