In the wake of rising violent incidents around Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill authorities have issued an advisory to members of Congress and their staffers, urging vigilance, as reported by the Daily Wire.

The Senate Sergeant-at-Arms distributed a bulletin outlining precautionary measures to mitigate risks associated with carjackings, armed robberies, and other criminal activities in the vicinity of the nation’s capital.

The advisory comes amid an uptick in criminal activity, with the Metropolitan Police Department data indicating a significant rise in violent crimes and property crimes. Notable incidents include armed robberies and carjackings involving congressional personnel in recent months.

The alarming crime rates have not only heightened concerns among the Capitol Hill community but also reflect a broader trend of escalating violence in the city. Acting D.C. Police Chief Pamela Smith disclosed that the city has already recorded its 200th homicide in 2023, a figure reminiscent of the crime rates of the 1990s.

As lawmakers and their teams navigate through this concerning phase, the emphasis is on bolstering security measures and fostering a safer environment for all who work and reside in the Capitol Hill area.
