Police carCapitol Hill-area residents are slated to meet with representatives of the Metropolitan Police Department next week to discuss crime in the community.

The First District Police Citizens Advisory Council is scheduled to hold a public meeting with law enforcement officials at MPD’s First District station (101 M St. SW) Tuesday. The First District includes much of the Capitol Hill area.

The discussion, which is set to run from 7 to 8 p.m., will include presentations from police and time for questions from locals.

The resident-run council has asked for a “detailed analysis” on the effect crime is having on First District neighborhoods, Bobby Pittman, the organization’s chairman, said in an email. The group also has requested that the U.S. Capitol Police, U.S. Park Police and Metro Transit Police give their thoughts on crime trends.

“We are concerned with every crime report and every victim, and we work with all law enforcement agencies to eradicate the opportunity for anyone to become a victim,” he said.

    Why bother? It is clear that Cheif Lanier is incompetent and has no plan to reduce crime. Her recent unsubstantiated statement that already illegal magazines in already illegal guns were to blame for the rise in violent crime was pitiful. If there is an answer to the recent crime wave it will not come from any senior MPD personnel.
