Bowser identified five areas -- Columbia Heights (Third District), Brightwood Park (Fourth District), Benning (Sixth District), Historic Anacostia (Seventh District) and Washington Highlands/Bellevue (Seventh District) – as key focus areas.

"There is no place where gun violence is acceptable in our city," said Mayor Bowser in a statement. "This is precisely why we are committed to making sure that we are investing in targeted programs and initiatives that protect our residents and bring resources to the communities that need it most."

The Fall Crime Prevention Initiative will run from the beginning of October to December 18. D.C. Police will focus resources on those five neighborhoods in an effort to eliminate violent crimes.
