very pleased to announce that, as of yesterday, May 2, Ward One is now
officially included within a single police district, namely the Third District
with headquarters at 17th and V NW. We will of course maintain our substation at
750 Park Road, NW.
far too many years of an artificial and arbitrary division at Harvard, with the
north being in 4D and the south being in 3D, we are now unified. This is one of
the goals I set out to achieve when I was elected as your
is more than just shifting boxes. This is substantive because it gives us
focused police leadership with a single Commander, Larry McCoy. In addition to
his superb leadership, we also have the inspired work o our substation
commander, Inspector Hoey, on Park Road. They are joined by many other fine
officers who are really making a change in public safety in our neighborhoods. I
do want to acknowledge the fine work of Commander Burton at 4D, who understands
the need for this change.
Obviously there is a ways to go. We must continue
our efforts at community engagement and increased
this is a solid step of progress.
achieving this result, I appreciate the support we have received from Chief
Ramsey. I am also grateful to Chief Ramsey for the fine police leadership we
have in the Ward.

note that the Ward One section of Woodley Park will continue to be in the Second
Police District. But all other Ward One neighborhoods are now in
answer emails before 9 AM on weekdays. If you email me after that, it is likely
that you will hear from me the next weekday. If there is a need to communicate
prior to that, you may wish to call me.
