Metropolitan Police Department Information on Crime Statistics

Dee Hunter believes the City Council must take a strong and aggressive stance in the oversight of the Metropolitan Police Department. The MPD must aggressively fight crime in all neighborhoods.

The Council must work to increase patrols and staffing levels in high crime neighborhoods all year round — not just in an election year.
