ANC 2F Discusses Police Response Times to Crimes


From David McAuley. Email him at david[AT]borderstan.com.

Police response times was on the agenda of Advisory Neighborhood Committee (ANC) 2F/Logan Circle Wednesday, May 22. ANC 2F’s Crime and Public Safety Committee and its Community Development Committee (CDC) met simultaneously in adjacent rooms at the Washington Plaza Hotel that evening.

Public Safety: Response Times

A bicycle theft has prompted ANC 2F to look into local police response times and practices.

At the April ANC 2F meeting, Commissioner Peter Lallas, 2F-01, asked why it took Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers 15 minutes to respond to his call when he saw someone riding his recently stolen bicycle, even though 47 officers were on duty and there were no other emergency calls at the time.

Chief Cathy Lanier has said the MPD strives for response times of five minutes. The MPD promised to look into the matter.

“If police are not responding as promptly as we’d like them to, that raises several questions,” Lallas said in an interview later. “Do we have enough officers? Do we have the resources available to keep out area safe?”

Lt. Jeff Carroll of the MPD was at the Crime and Public Safety Committee meeting to follow up. Records showed response time for the incident was 14 minutes, Lt. Carroll said. Carroll explained 911 calls are answered by a DC agency called the Office of Unified Communications (OUC). This agency then directs response appropriately. In this case, records showed, the call took 10 minutes to go from the OUC to the MPD, after which the police responded in four minutes.

According to Lt. Carroll, the theft of Lallas’s bicycle occurred at the time of a police shift change. At these times, the police are effectively at half-strength, and criminals know when police shift change occurs.

“The MPD should never be at half strength,” Lallas said.

Lt. Carroll also said the MPD had some relevant internal numbers about staffing and response time. He will look into whether they can be publicly released and report at future ANC 2F meetings.

The above and more will be discussed when ANC 2F has its next regular monthly meeting Wednesday, June 5, 7 pm, at the Washington Plaza Hotel, 10 Thomas Circle NW.

"crime"

Crime news from Dupont-Logan-U Street.

A man was robbed and beaten early Thursday morning near the intersection of 14th and N Streets NW, according to a post from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). According to police, three men approached the victim at about 1 am and began punching him.

During the attack, one of the suspects stole the victim’s iPad. Two of the three suspects were later apprehended and charged with robbery. A third suspect fled the area on foot. The victim’s iPad was not recovered.

NBC Washington spoke with the victim in the case, who says the suspects shouted homophobic slurs in Spanish at him. The incident occurred on the sidewalk near 1321 14th Street NW, the location of Crew Club, which according to its website, is a fitness and lounge facility that caters to gay men.

Police are investigating the case as a possible hate crime and are still seeking the third suspect. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call MPD at 202-727-9099.
