DC opens Real-Time Crime Center as district tries to crack down on crime

Washington, D.C., opened its Real-Time Crime Center on Monday in a new initiative to curb crime in the district.

Another new initiative connected to the RTCC, CameraConnect D.C., will allow businesses and Washington residents to share security footage with the Metropolitan Police Department in real time. Last year, Mayor Muriel Bowser and MPD announced the creation of the RTCC to respond to criminal activity in real time. 

“The policies and strategies we’ve put in place to rebalance our public safety ecosystem are helping us drive down crime, and the Real-Time Crime Center is part of those efforts,” Bowser said. The RTCC is a part of her fiscal 2025 budget. 

The RTCC will be staffed 24/7 with local, regional, and federal law enforcement agencies.
