A Safer, Stronger DC

In August 2015, Mayor Muriel Bowser outlined a comprehensive public safety agenda— the Safer, Stronger DC plan. The proposal includes increasing police presence on streets and in communities as long as necessary, getting tough on the relatively small number of repeat violent offenders who continue to bring harm to the DC community and providing the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) with the tools and resources it needs to protect neighborhoods. Because this is not just a policing issue, Mayor Bowser has proposed a number of measures that will bring stability, opportunity and more services to the neighborhoods that have been hardest hit by crime.
