I called 911 but never heard any officers respond to the call nor did I receive any phone confirmation of them being sent out (I always leave my name and number)What happened? and why did no one respond?Perhaps Councilmember Mendelson should hold his 'town hall' meetings on the Street of MPD-5D and not in the saftery of the Police Headquarters. I'd suggest either after midnight or in the middle of the day when our kids are out ... they both seem to be popular times of the day for gunfire in our warzone.

address a wide spectrum of issues related to crime in the District of
Columbia. Members of the public are invited to join Mendelson and a
number of officials who are slated to make brief presentations and
answer questions on topics ranging from crime prevention to

The Town Hall will be held on Monday, April 23rd at

"I urge the residents of the District to join me at
this Town Hall and take advantage of this opportunity to air their
concerns and get straight answers to their questions on public safety-
related issues," stated Mendelson. "Not often are all of the key
players in one place at the same time, and no issue is too large or
too small when it comes to making our neighborhoods safer places to
live, work, play, and learn."
