I'm not entirely sold on the idea that it's really *more* police presence. It is *more* police, but not necessarily more police *per capita.* If the population grows, I can see more police being a reasonable thing. But is it really more police per resident? I'm not sure that's the case. Yes, if more residents are moving in or expected to move in, it makes sense to add more police, but I'd really like to see the number of police per capita over time. AFAIK, DC's police force has been growing, but at nowhere near the pace of the overall population, all while crime is going down. Perhaps the rate of growth for the police force is too low, but even increasing it slightly wouldn't match the rate of population growth.
