Locals in Hill East will have the opportunity to walk with D.C. officials through their neighborhood as part of an effort by the District to help residents feel safer after recent violent crime in the area.
The walk is scheduled to start at Eastern High School (1700 East Capitol St. NE) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. It will run until 7 p.m., when police will hold a community meeting at Liberty Baptist Church (527 Kentucky Ave. SE).
ANC 6B commissioners, as well as representatives of the Metropolitan Police Department, Office of the Deputy Mayor for Public Safety, Department of Behavioral Health and Department of Human Services, will participate.
“Engage and get questions answered from D.C. government officials, get safety tips and facts, meet your neighbors, feel safe in your neighborhood and get your steps,” an announcement for the event says.
