Discussion with Commander Morgan Kane, MPD First District Commander


Discussion with Commander Morgan Kane, MPD First District Commander

Commander Kane spoke at CHAMPS January 2020 Quarterly Meeting and provided an update on crime in the neighborhood and took questions from members. She also outlined some of the resources she’s developed and is working on (including staffing on 8th Street/Barracks Row) and committed to continue working with business owners and residents on issues of aggressive panhandling. She reminded members that DC does not have loitering laws, and that other agencies, including the DC Department of Behavioral Health, need to be involved in issues of homelessness and substance abuse.

A few good points and resources she provided:

  • Put your cellphone away when walking. We’ve had lots of crimes of opportunity where a thief swipes a cellphone out of someone’s hand while they’re walking down the street. Have situational awareness and put your phone away.
  • Communicate with the police! If you see a crime or are the victim of a crime, report it. Not sure if you should call 911? Just call 911.
  • Sign your business and your home up for the Security Camera Rebate Program. This program provides rebates for cameras installed up to your home or business up to a certain dollar amount, with an agreement that video footage is available to MPD if they need it. Video is key to helping solve crimes.
  • Still don’t want to call 911? Check out the First District Roster below.
