The Fenty administration remains committed to working with communities in the District of Columbia to address and reduce hate crimes and perceptions of bias in our city. As part of this effort, in November 2009, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) released the District’s first report on bias-related crimes. The report highlighted trends in hate or bias-related crimes in the District of Columbia from 2005 through September 30, 2009, and efforts in the District to address them. This addendum to the report updates the data for all of 2009. Starting in the spring of 2011, MPD will provide this information in an annual report.
