Description: The NEAR Act (Title II, Subtitle H) charges the the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice with the preparation of an annual report on trends in crime statistics in the District. Among other topics, the report will examine the number and type of felony arrests made by MPD, whether those arrests resulted in convictions, what sentences were imposed, and linkages touchpoints with the Department of Behavioral Health. This research is an important step towards understanding how the District’s criminal justice system currently functions and the findings will be delivered to the Council and the Mayor. The Lab has partnered with the Deputy Mayor’s office to assist with the report and the data analysis. 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:
