  • Activated the Crime Suppression Team for violent crime, which has recently made three arrests;
  • Enhanced MPD presence, with highly visible vehicles actively patrolling the East Village; and
  • Increased traffic violations enforcement near Dupont Circle and the West End, including having made arrests for improper and stolen license plates.
