Updates from your ANC Commissioners

We periodically share updates from your ANC commissioners, edited for brevity and clarity. Although these are most pertinent to particular single member districts (SMDs), we feel the information shared can be of interest to the whole Capitol Hill community. Are you an ANC commissioner who shares regular updates? Please add maria@thehillishome.com to your distribution list.–María Helena Carey

By and large, 2017 was a better year than 2016, based on a declining numerical count of crime incidents.  This, of course, does not consider quality (or lack there of when talking crime).  Still. here’s the big picture for the two PSAs and ANC 6B that I focus my excel data collection on.  The file itself with all the data, including some for PSA 108, is attached per usual.

(Click here to see it: December 2017 Crime Reports  –MHC)

PSA 106: # of Crime Reports
Total 28 in December vs. 48 in November
Average per month: 46 in 2017 and 56 in 2016

PSA 107: # of Crime Reports
Total 69 in December vs. 68 in November
Average per month: 78 in 2017 and 92 in 2016

ANC 6B: # of Crime Reports
Total 91 in December vs. 119 in November
Average per month: 111 in 2017 and 132 in 2016

My Capitol Hill Violent Crime (CH VCs) index in December totaled 6 for an annual average of 8.3.  This compares with the December 2016 total of 10 and a 10.0 annual average. [VCs include homicides, sex abuse, robberies, and assaults]How about guns?  PSA 106 and 107, combined, experienced 14 robberies robberies that involved guns in 2017 vs. 47 in 2016.  For assaults, the same comparison is 9 vs. 12.  For details on these data, consult the new chart on my attached file: 2017 Totals by Crime Type

Thefts?  Way more than half of total crimes reported each month pertain to thefts and thefts from auto.  Of PSA 106’s 562 crime reports in 2017, 53% were thefts and 31% thefts from auto.  For PSA 107, the percentages are 58% (thefts) and 30% (thefts from auto).  Of surprise to me, thefts (which include those packages stolen off porches) did not rise in December 2017 over November 2017:  PSA 106 (22 vs 29); PSA 107 (37 vs 45), PSA 108 (16 vs 31) and for ANC 6B (56 vs 75).
Here’s where you can get the 2017/2018 comparison for the whole District.  All categories declined except for stolen autos.

Conclusion?  Many Thanks to MPD for another year of declining crime and here’s hoping we see more such good work in 2018.

Crime Scene Video – Robbery on 1800 Block of A Street SE

One of our neighbors was violently robbed on January 10th around 5:30pm on the 1800 block of A Street SE.  Five unidentified teenagers assaulted the victim, stole his shoes, and broke several of the victim’s ribs.

Last, but definitely not least, I’m delighted to report that construction will begin on the Reservation 13 F-1 and G-1 parcels this year.  Per DMPED –
