D.C. police recruits to be deployed

Because it’s the holiday season and thieves will be out snatching phones, wallets, purses, and other items, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said more than 80 police recruits will be deployed out in the streets along with uniformed and plain clothed officers.

The additional police resources will have a visible presence in areas where people are shopping

Some of the areas that will see more police resources will be Chinatown, Connecticut Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue just to name a few of the areas.
