Dupont Circle’s ANC 2B will host a crime prevention summit on June 6 at the Cardozo Education Campus near U Street.
The summit, which lasts from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is intended for D.C. residents in Wards 1 and 2.
Speakers will include Samantha Nolan, a crime prevention expert and certified Neighborhood Watch Trainer, in addition to officials from the Metropolitan Police Department and Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department.
The event is co-sponsored by ANCs 1B, 1A, 2B and Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne Nadeau.
“Most crimes in DC are preventable,” reads a document outlining the meeting’s agenda. “Being aware of your surroundings and watching where you leave personal belongings can help you from not becoming a victim. Please join us to learn more tips on how to protect yourself and about criminal behaviors that can help you and your neighborhood be safe this summer.”
“The summit is a great opportunity for residents of Wards 1 and 2 to discuss crime prevention, while meeting interested neighbors, business leaders, police officials and D.C. agencies that focus on public safety,” reads the agenda document.
Light refreshments will be served during the summit. For more information, contact ANC 1B12 Commissioner John Green at [email protected]
