It's another All Hands on Deck weekend in the District. All sworn D.C. police will patrol the city -- as part of the city's program to curb summer crime.
Meanwhile, the city is unveiling a new initiative to reward people who help police prevent violent crime.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier is calling the new program the "Got Guns?" initiative.
She's offering rewards to people who tip off police to illegal firearms.
People can call in anonymously and receive up to $1,000 for tips that result in police recovering a gun.
Lanier says in the last two and a half years, police have taken more than 6,000 guns off D.C. streets.
But she says it's important to recover the guns before crimes are committed.
The department plans to place ads about the program throughout the city.
