Security camera (Photo courtesy of David Heyman)Councilman Charles Allen of Ward 6 is looking to give residents of Capitol Hill and other parts of the District a financial incentive to install security cameras at their homes.

Allen tomorrow plans to introduce legislation that would offer a onetime tax credit of up to $100 to any D.C. homeowner who buys a security camera to help fight crime, according to his office.

“It’s just one idea of many needed, but after seeing the number of investigations that rely on home security cameras to identify suspects and aid the police, I’m convinced it’s an approach we need to explore,” he said in a newsletter to Capitol Hill-area residents today.

Home security cameras often play a role in investigations into package thefts.

So far this year, surveillance cameras have captured more than a half-dozen suspected package thefts from homes in the Capitol Hill area, a review of Hill Now stories shows.

Hill East resident David Heyman told Hill Now earlier this year that the camera he trains on his doorstep provides “peace of mind.”

“What you’re telling the bad guy is, ‘Go someplace else,'” he said.

Another package theft from a Capitol Hill-area home has been captured on video.

A man walked up to a home on the 200 block of Warren St. NE, about two blocks from Lincoln Park, and snatched a package from the doorstep, video distributed yesterday afternoon by police shows.

Surveillance cameras recorded the person of interest about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, police said.

Numerous videos of men stealing packages in Ward 6 have appeared online in recent months. Two of them posted by police show thefts on the 900 blocks of 8th and 9th streets NE. Another video from a 9th Street NE resident fed up with package thefts shows a man taking a box full of dog poop she left for the unsuspecting thief in an act of revenge.

Thefts are down this year in the First District. District crime statistics show 717 thefts in the area from Jan. 1 to April 22, a 6.5 percent decrease from the same period the previous year.

The number of reported package thefts has “drastically” dropped in the First District since the holiday season, Cmdr. Jeff Brown said last month.

A package thief has been caught on camera again near the H Street corridor.

A man with a brown coat and a white plastic bag approached a house on the 900 block of 9th Street NE and walked away with a box, a video police distributed today shows.

A home surveillance system captured the video of the person of interest about noon on Friday, police said.

Police in December previously distributed a video of a man stealing a package from a doorstep on the 900 block of 8th Street NE. A 9th Street NE resident fed up with package thefts also recorded a man taking a box full of dog poop she left for the unsuspecting thief.

The number of reported package thefts has “drastically” dropped in the First District since the holiday season, Cmdr. Jeff Brown said last month.

David Heyman, a Hill East resident who has a camera trained on his doorstep, told Hill Now last month that his family avoids having packages sit on their front stoop for long.

“If we’re planning to order something, I ask my wife her schedule so we can have it delivered when someone is home,” he said.
