Thank you to MPD from Orren St.
- Dear Lt. Anderson, Commander Greene, Chief Lanier, and all the
officers who patrol Trinidad,
At our recent PSA meeting, my neighbor Liz stood to thank MPD for
putting a serious dent in crime in Trinidad and making our
neighborhood safer and I just want to join her in thanking you.
It was not lost on us on Orren St. that MPD was concentrating
resources in Trinidad in past months. We saw police in cars, on
foot, on segways, bikes and I believe even horses. I was even
blocked in my alley briefly by the chief's cruiser as she checked in
on a police action two doors down from my house. Message to the
chief: you can block my alley any time!
And recently we were able, through our ANC commissioners, to bring a
business parking six commercial vans around our houses every night to
MPD's attention and finally the vans were ticketed and our street
looks like a neighborhood again, not an industrial park.
Thank you for making our lives better and sending the message: Here,
there is the rule of law, not the rule of anything goes. I think if
we, with your help, can keep sending that message, the neighborhood
can only improve.
all the best,
1400 block of Orren St NE
