Description: To address violent crime, the DC Council passed the Neighborhood Engagement Achieves Results (NEAR) Act in 2016. The NEAR Act requires the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice (DMPSJ) to deliver an annual report to the Mayor and Council on felony crimes in the District. For the past two years, The Lab partnered with DMPSJ to analyze felony crime data and report details about crimes, arrests, court cases, suspects, and victims. Update: all of the code and some of the data used to create this report are now available in the following repository:


This report was submitted by the Executive Office of the Mayor to the Council of the District of Columbia on February 2, 2018. It was entered into the Council's Legislative Information Management system as RC22-0132, "Correspondence from the Mayor - A Report on Felony Crimes in the District of Columbia for 2016." The official copy is available through LIMS here:
