Letter from the Mayor

Your safety is my number one priority. I want you to know that we will curb the number of guns in our community; arrest people using guns in our community; and work with all our partners to make sure we are preventing crime before it happens, but also holding people accountable who are making communities less safe for women, our children, our brothers and sons, and our families.

We are throwing every resource at the rise in violent crime in DC, and we will keep pushing on all fronts until we see positive results. We will continue to deliver:

COVID has upended so much in our lives, including the very fragile public safety ecosystem in our community. Getting back to normal operations in our courts, jail, parole and probation agencies, and job training programs will also tilt the scale toward safer communities. Know that I wake up every morning focused on the safety of our city and willing to create or expand any program that will make our neighborhoods safer.    

Keep the good ideas coming our way, and let’s continue to stick together until we flatten this curve too. 


    Muriel Bowser
