Description

This report summarizes what we have learned about homicides occurring in DC over the last decade, with a particular focus on the three years from 1998 through 2000. The information in this report was developed by a Homicide Review Team, which has been working diligently to code homicide information into ViCAP booklets. The result is a rich source of information from which our Department will be able to develop more effective investigative, intervention and prevention strategies. The findings of this analysis are already being used to guide some immediate changes in the organization and management of homicide investigations, as well as other enforcement, prevention and research initiatives. I am confident these and other changes in the future will improve our Department’s ability to solve homicides, bring offenders to justice and make our communities safer.
