Is it possible there could be a little more police presence along first and O Street during the late afternoons/nights? Last night there were several calls placed about large groups of guys drinking, blocking the street, being loud (disturbing the peace). Most of the guys are the area dealers.
Later on I noticed there was a group of 4-5 police on bikes on the intersection of Florida and New York Avenue (hanging out taking a break). Perhaps they could get together as a group on the corner of first and O street at times and take their break. There is a shaded area and ledge were the dealers and homeless normally hangout. Perhaps they can use that area as a meeting point
