The Columbia Heights Police Department issues a Crime Alert when we notice a crime pattern. The crime pattern may be specific to geographic area, a time period, or specific method of crime.
Crime Alerts aim to provide accurate information, increase the chance for arrests, prevent future crimes, and reduce fear. The key part of these notices is crime prevention information & simple steps you can take to reduce your chance of becoming a victim.
