MPD Chief Cathy Lanier

The D.C. Police Department has heralded its latest All Hands On Deck weekend with a press release. This AHOD took place between the early morning hours of July 10 to the early morning hours of July 12. The all gambit produced 519 arrests and one closed homicide case.

As all AHOD scholars know the bulk number doesn’t quite tell the story of what the officers really achieve during these weekends. More detailed breakdowns show that much of the arrests are ultimately tossed out by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We posted the numbers of previous AHODs here and here and here.

The latest numbers provided by the U.S. Attorneys’ Office show a similar stack of flimsy arrests.
