Survey: Ward 8 Residents Feel ‘Least Safe’ in D.C.
Based on more than 900 residents’ perceptions captured last summer
Ward 8 residents feel the most unsafe in their neighborhoods during the day and at night, according to a survey conducted last summer.
Three nonprofit groups—the Community Preservation and Development Corporation, the Council for Court Excellence, and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation—administered the Districtwide survey to more than 900 residents both in person and online. Questions revolved around how safe residents feel in certain areas at certain times, their relationships with police, and ways to improve public safety. The survey is part of a two-year effort called Collaborating for Prevention.
