- Thank you Commander Green. I will share this information out tonigth's Civic Association Meeting for the Bates Area Civic Association. I am also chair of the Public Safety Committee and will be attending the PSA 501 Community Meetings.Thank you for your efforts and your timely update. As a long time resident of the area, I have to say the increase in crime is a new thing. Over the past 7 years we have enjoyed a great reduction in crimes in my area. Great job.Geovani Bonilla89 P ST NW

We met with the business owners on saturday and created new beats along north capitol street. They also agreed to increase lighting on their businesses in the corridor. We have also been deploying the light tower in that area, doing compliance checkpoints on hanover, bates and o streets. The officers have been making major arrest in that area as well.
I have deployed 10 extra officers and plain clothes to catch these subjects commiting robberies in that area. Thus far we have captured the juvenile who robbed the pizza delivery man at 2nd and rhode island ave nw about a week ago.
We will continue to focus are efforts on this area as the season changes and it gets dark earlier. We will conduct more operations on P street as well.

We have had a significant increase in violent crimes along N. Capitol Street, unit block of P ST NW, O ST and First ST NW. MDP had declared this area as a hot zone. From October 1 - October 29th we had 10 violent crimes. Robberies at gun point or with other deadly weapons as well as force and violence.I have yes to see an increase in police presence in this area. With 3 empty schools at these area (J.F. Cooke, M.M. Washington and Slater), combined with all the alleys connecting O ST NW to Bates ST and Florida Avenue, and all the social programs the city has dumped into the neighborhood, it is a total recipe for crime.Resident of the unit block of P ST NW.
