And, as I reported to WMATA there are several lamp posts at the Brookland Metro that are not lit. I noticed this the past few months since the time changed. At the top of the escalator steps, and along the walkways; the entire area is dimly lit.If WMATA were to turn the lamp posts on that will create at least a more well lit area for riders who use the Brookland station.And, especially with all the increased walking traffic due to the new development in the area.Thank youStephanie

Neighbors, with the return of 2014 school sessions, I'm sorry to report more open drug use and related nuisances on the streets and blocks close to the Brookland/CUA Metro Station and LCM HS.
Please be on the lookout for such open drug use, as well as drug trafficking to LCM's HS students. Indeed, report any suspicious activity on 10th to 12th, Lawrence, Monroe, Newton and Otis. Peak times are around 8:30 am to 9:30 am and 2:30 to 3:30 pm+ on school days.
Call 911 (OUC/ Office of Unified Communications) for a POLICE response-- and to report any such illicit activity. You need not give your name nor personally file a report.
Note the 911 operator's number, always given when they answer your call. If you do not receive prompt, attentive service from a 911 operator, don't hesitate to let all of us and OUC/911 Director Jennifer Greene know about it...
There is absolutely NO excuse for 911 operators trying to discourage such reports and an effective MPD response to open drug use and trafficking around DC Public Schools and Metro Station areas.
Failure to enforce laws against open drug use and trafficking only invites perpetrators of more serious robberies and crimes of violence to a neighborhood.
