I would like to acknowledge the efforts Lt. Wright and
his team have been making since our last PSA meeting.
we now have a regular foot patrol during the peak
morning hours on Eckington Place and Florida Ave NE. I
saw an empty squad Friday night parked outside XM
Radio. This is good to see! Please keep it up.
I received a call from Metro Transit Police today.
Sgt. Enoch will deploy plain clothes officers to the
NY Ave Metro station during peak hours in the morning
and afternoon hours to increase saftey. WMATA is
piloting a CCTV system at the U Street Station. If
that pilot is successful we hope to see some at the NY
Ave station hopefully this year.
