Ward 3 For All – FY25 Budget: Neighborhood Safety

Foster Safe, Healthy Neighborhoods

People must feel and be safe in their communities. While the District has made progress in reducing crime this year, we can make neighborhoods safer by prioritizing accountability, comprehensive services, and responsible policing. The FY25 budget demonstrates that public safety remains a top priority for the Council. Consistent with last year, we fully funded the Metropolitan Police Department’s hiring and retention request, as well as made capital investments to support the department’s needs. The budget also supported healthier communities by funding environmental programs that improve the quality and condition of our waterways, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and improve household energy efficiency.
