I am not an agent. I live in the area. There are car breakins and some burglarlies in weekly crime reports and my neighbors have been victims of this but I haven't seen any other crimes in my neighborhood since I've lived in since 2005. Really this kind of crime happens all over the DC area a lot including Loudoun County where I work. I recommend buying a home with a car garage and you won't have to worry about your car. I recommend visiting the street a lot and talkign to neighbors. I like that my street has a lot of retired folks and a stay at home mom which keep an eye on things. I recommend the part of Ft. Washington on the side of rt 210 closer to the river versus Ft. Washington on the other side of 20 bordering Temple Hills etc. I own a home on the border of Oxon Hill and Ft. Washington currently and when I plan to upgrade it would be on the side I recommend. I love my community despite the negative perceptions of the county in general. I have a decent reverse commute to NoVA jobs going in the opposite direction of most of the traffic (50 minutes) and my husband has a great commute to downtown DC.
