Subject: [MPD-5D] Otis Street Playground
I was very happy to see a motorcycle officer at the playground between 18th and 20th street NE on Otis a few weeks ago. There is a daily congregation of people under the trees at the picnic tables on the basketball court. They often shoot dice and smoke weed and drink. Having an officer show up and spend some time there throughout the week would help discourage this behavior; this deterring is especially important given the proximity of the middle school/junior high across the field, the playground for toddlers and children 100 feet away, and the practice field which is used for football and baseball by children. The other day I turned the corner from 18th onto Otis and could smell the weed at the corner!Please continue to send officers there throughout the afternoons!Thank you,Nick on Newton
