Re: [MPD-5D] Broken Key Guy! Possible solution!
- Can any of MPD-5D suggest the proper buzz words or phrases to get the 311 or 911 dispatcher to take these calls seriously?For the times he's knocking and not threatening in addition to if he's more threatening [although I hope 911 should takes threatening calls seriously]
And what can we state so his actions [and frequency] can be logged in the systme as an ongoing problem/nuisance - since the address varies?Bloomingdale/Eckington had the "I need metro money" guy - who I think is different than the "broken key guy" so there might be more than one.thanks

Well he strikes again and again! We heard someone knocking on the door at
4:00 AM a couple of days ago and he was on the porch again tonight.
I called 9-1-1 and it is the same song and dance, the dispatcher does not
seem to be able to comprehend the police officers, for the neighborhood, are
asking us to call, so they can arrest him. They also do not seem to
understand we have "No trespassing" signs posted and I am willing to press
charges. I am so glad I am out of the EMS system, as I would be pulling my
hair out by now.
So, friends and neighbors, I came up with a possible solution. I am going to
post the following message on my front door for BKG.
Feel free to copy, print and post it yourself. Maybe if he thinks the whole
neighborhood is out to catch him, he will stop??? Wishful thinking, I know,
but can you imagine the concern he might have if 100++ people post the same
Let me know what you think and if you are going to use it!!
Here is the notice, of course I used color and underlining for the key
points, feel free to adlib or decorate it anyway you want!!!
Dear Broken Key Guy,
Yeah we all know:
"You broke your key and or lock and you need cold hard cash to pay the
locksmith, because he won't take a check."
For immediate assistance, please do one of the following:
1. STOP locking your doors!! It seems you are not smart enough to avoid
breaking either the lock or the key. Destroying 10-15 doors or keys a week
2. Get a J-O-B, and you will have the money to take of your problems
instead of scamming the honest citizens in this neighborhood.
3. Take two steps back, smile, turn to the right, then to the left and
then please face forward so our cameras can take accurate pictures of you
for the MPD.
YES, you are being filmed!
Your description and method of operation have been reported to the MPD and
it is only a matter of time before you are caught.
Please help us out and turn yourself in to the MPD so we can get scum like
you off the street!
In case you have not figured it out yet, the entire Brookland neighborhood
is onto your scam. We look out for each other around here, so I would be
The police know who you are and are watching you!!
In fact they may even see you right! MPD is watching our house, because you
have tried us at least 3 times.
Our ADT security system is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week and
already has some great photos.
To order yours today, please call 9-1-1 and ask for the first available
police officer to show you package options, I am sure your mother would be
so proud and would like an 8 x 10 glossy photo to hang over her mantle.
This HOME OWNER
If nothing else it will allow me to vent some of my frustration at the scum
