    Police fill D.C. streets for All Hands on Deck weekend

    Police fill D.C. streets for All Hands on Deck weekend

    May 4, 2008 - 3:21pm

    WASHINGTON—D.C. police were out in full force this weekend in an effort to keep crime down in the city as a part of the "All Hands on Deck" initiative.
    A week ago, violence in the nation's capital claimed the lives of four people and left 18 people wounded. Police say this weekend was much quieter, but crime still persists.
    Two people were stabbed early Saturday morning on Vermont Street in Northwest, leaving one person dead.
    A second stabbing happened in the 4900 block of Jay Street, injuring one man. Police did not identify the victim and his condition is unknown.
    "All Hands on Deck" is intended to reduce violent crime, get guns off the street, and to build community relations.
    About 160 extra police officers helped patrol neighborhoods Friday and Saturday nights. There are at least four more "All Hands on Deck" initiatives planned for this year.
    D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier told Washington's NBC/Channel 4 that despite last week's surge in homicides that other types of crimes are down. But police are especially trying to curb crime in areas surrounding the 5th District.
    Lanier says the city's closure rate for homicides this year is 68 percent, as compared to 33 percent this time last year. Police arrested a 15-year-old Saturday in the death of another teen whose body was dumped near train tracks in the 5th district.
    She says residents have thanked police officers for their efforts this weekend.
    "Community members are extremely happy," Lanier says. "I've gotten dozens of emails and violent crime has been relatively quiet (this weekend). So, we are very happy."

    To bad it can't be sustained on a real regular basis.

    So true wish we all could have that kind of coverage 24/7 but, that would be in a perfect world. Anyone else besides me think everything is getting worse due to economy and gas prices?? Definately think we need to stay alert looks like not going to get better unless we follow the DC example all the time.

    Last year during LE week, a couple of DC cops told us that the streets were never so peaceful as when there were about 35,0000 extra cops walking around on them.

    Hold on brothers, we're coming back!!
