Democrat D.C. Sees More 911 Calls Than Any U.S. State.
Democrat-run Washington D.C. receives more 911 calls than any U.S. state, according to research by the Schiller Kessler Group (SKG). Examining the number of emergency calls from the District from 2019 to 2021, the attorneys estimated an average of 2,012 calls per 1,000 residents.
This places the U.S. capital a remarkable 72 percent ahead of the worst-rated U.S. state, New Mexico, which saw an average of 1,169 emergency calls per 1,000 residents.
While SKG did not analyze calls from 2022 to 2023, serious crime in D.C. worsened substantially last year, with homicides increasing by 35 percent to 274 and shootings increasing by 10 percent to 960. Over a hundred of the shooting victims were minors, including two slain infants.
Carjackings were also a growing issue, continuing into 2024. A recent carjacking spree saw two people murdered, including former Donald Trump administration official Mike Gill.
Washington D.C. is governed by Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, and a City Council comprised entirely of Democrats and former Democrats sitting as independents.
