Burglary in the District of Columbia Patterns and Trends, 2000-2009

Group: Urban Institute District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute

Description

This brief describes the steady decline in burglary in Washington, DC, to levels below the national average. Washington, D.C.’s burglary rates were more volatile than the nationwide pattern, declining in the mid-1990s and stabilizing in the mid-2000s. Analyses by police district found that while most mirrored the citywide pattern of a decline across the period, burglaries in 7D increased significantly. Hot spots maps reveal the dissipation of one anomalous hot spot in the Second Police District as well as the increasing burglary rates in the Seventh Police District, highlighting the need for micro-level responses to local crime trends.
