Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Season

Just a quick note to advise everyone living and visiting our neighborhood during the holiday season that we all need to be on the lookout for crime. There is traditionally a spike in crimes of opportunity in the neighborhood during the holidays. The Metropolitan Police have told us at our recent ANC meetings that this is the time of year that they see an increase in the number of car breakins, package thefts, muggings, and burglaries. So enjoy the holidays but be aware of crime!

And remember to report any crimes that you witness along with accurate descriptions in order to help the Police catch the criminals!
