Borderstan Reports On D.C. Crime

Matty Rhoades from Borderstan put together this report on crime in the city from January-June.

"The main number everyone looks for in D.C. is homicides and there is good news to report: There were 55 homicides in the first six months of 2011 compared to 60 in the same period of 2010, an 8% drop," Rhoades wrote.  "Overall, crime was up 4% due to an 8% rise in property crimes during the January-June period. Violent crime was actually down 7% during the first six months of 2011 from the same period in 2010. All numbers are from the MPD Crime Database."
