Police carTonight, MPD First District Commander Jeff Brown will address the recent crimes in Hill East.

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. at St. Colleta of Greater Washington, which is located at 1901 Independence Ave, SE.

Last week, Hill Now reported on a Change.org petition started by local resident Riccardo de Marchi Trevisan that called on Mayor Muriel Bowser and D.C. police Chief Cathy Lanier to improve safety in Hill East. The petition, titled “Protect Hill East Citizens’ Safety,” 317 people have signed the petition.

The meeting is being organized by Denise Krepp, an Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for ANC6B, which represents Hill East and some of the surrounding area. This region has seen an overall decrease in crime within its borders so far this year, according to D.C. crime statistics. But armed robberies, assaults with guns, burglaries and car thefts are up.
