    Washington. D.C.: Crime in the District
    Executive Summary: As demonstrated by the data captured in Microsoft excel, it is likely that rape, larceny-theft, robbery and burglary will increase, due to rapidly changing demographics in the District. Murder, aggravated assault and vehicle theft will decrease. MPDCs reorganization of policing districts in 2004 has improved law enforcement capabilities, however, MPDC remains relatively inefficient in crime prevention.

    Initial Microsoft excel charts indicate that it is likely that murders will decrease in the District. The analyst has come to this conclusion by entering UCR data into an excel spreadsheet and formatting the data into the chart. From 2004 to 2006, murders decreased by an average of -12%. In 2007, murders increased 7%. This spike in murders is attributed to the sudden increase of illegal immigrants in historically African American neighborhoods, resulting in “turf wars” and an increase in illicit activities leading to an increase in violence and murders.

    Part IX Current Crime Problem: Murder
    Type of Crime: Murder
    FBI UCR Crime Definition: The willful non-negligent killing of a person.
    D.C Code Index Offense Definition: Killing of another purposely, in perpetrating or attempting to perpetrate an offense punishable by imprisonment, or otherwise with malice aforethought.
    Suspect(s): The majority of Homicide offenders in the District are African Americans. Hispanics come in a distant second. Most homicides reported in the District are black against black or black against Hispanic. Youth violence among African Americans is severe. MPD predicts that homicides will continue to increase as the economy continues in free fall. As the economy worsens, there will be a drastic increase in younger youths joining gangs. Gangs are an outlet for youths that provide an opportunity to have unity in a group. As gang numbers swell with youths, gang rivalry will inevitably rise, bringing an increase in violence and homicide.
    Victim(s): The majority of homicide victims are male and female African Americans. 78% of homicide victims are African American males. Furthermore, African American females make up 11% of homicide victims. Hispanic males account for 4% of homicide victims. Hispanic females account for 1% of homicide victims. Lastly, white males and females each account for 2% of homicide victims.

    3134360488950Location(s): The majority of homicides occur in central and south east D.C, as demonstrated by the image below. Furthermore, homicides occur most often in predominantly African American and Hispanic neighborhoods. Homicides intensify in gang territories and gang borders. North West D.C has the least reported homicide cases.

    Impact on the Community and Response to the problem: For the fifth year in a row, the District recorded less than 200 homicides. According to mpd.dc.gov, “The MPD is dedicated to reconnecting the community and police through numerous initiatives that focus on enhanced police visibility, improved outreach and collaboration, and new crime solving efforts.” Furthermore, MPD has increased police visibility and collaboration within the community.
    Police Response to the Problem: The rate of closure for homicides is over 15% higher than the national average. Furthermore, MPD has attained a 65% closure of cold case. MPD has created the “Homicide Task Force” to further combat homicides by analyzing key factors in homicide cases, recording trends, and utilizing the information to increase policing presence where it is needed most.
