I can say that I haven't been able to attend the meetings because of my job as well. However, I have been in contact with Francine Edmonds of the mayor's neighborhood services center and Lt. Melvin Scott of MPD. After constant communication, we were able to get some much needed attention to our neighborhood. Maybe you should try that.

I agree. Is anyone in the police station reading these posts? I can't always make it to the PSA meetings b/c my job can run late, so I was excited when this list-serve was set up.
