Janice, I am a Ward 5 homeowner and native Washingtonian Ward 4. I appreciate the Yahoo group updates & postings and wanted to make a suggestion. With advancements in technology, and the ease of use they bring, I would like to see MPD or The office of technology design an IPhone Application that would call DC 911 and/or give the option to report an incident via Text or SMS. With the speed of written cyber communications, messaging should be just as responsive and provide an additional method of community communication to MPD; in addition, this application might provide a greater response for support since it could reduce the communication and commitment fear that some people have since information is communicated via a written message. The application could also provide information like a list of basic questions to answer when reporting an incident or crime.
