New Anti-Crime Efforts

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and Police Chief Cathy Lanier plan to announce new crime initiatives this morning, as officials continue to try to battle a mounting body count in the District. In February, Lanier told the District Council that violent crime was down and the city was on the right track. But that news quickly faded as crime waves have swept through neighborhoods, in Northeast in particular. The mayor will be walking through the Northeast neighborhood of Trinidad, where three men were gunned down during an especially violent weekend that brought eight violent deaths. (One of those was a police shooting of a man in a domestic dispute.)
