Community awareness about crime is one of several factors that can keep the crime rate low in our neighborhood. Therefore, ANC 2F and the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) are teaming up to host a Neighborhood Crime Awareness Meet-and-Greet outside Whole Foods on Sunday April 14th from 1-2:30 p.m. to share information and tips to avoid becoming a crime victim. Representatives from MPD and the ANC 2F Crime and Public Safety Committee will be on-hand to answer the community’s questions about neighborhood crime.
Typically, crime increases during warmer months as more people get out to enjoy our vibrant neighborhood. Now that warmer weather is finally here, now is the time to learn how to prevent crime and avoid being a crime victim! Property crime increased in ANC 2F in summer 2012 compared to summer 2011, driven by thefts and thefts from autos. While winter 2013 saw crime drop pretty dramatically, with your help raising our community’s awareness we can keep that trend growing this summer.
Stop by and learn how you can protect yourself and make our neighborhood safer this Sunday. ANC 2F will follow-up this event with a week of crime and safety tips on our Facebook and Twitter account – so friend and follow us today!
