MPD has started a series of seven meetings around the city to present new police district and police service area boundaries. Locally, it appears that the Dupont area is in for some changes — the area east of 18th Street and north of Q Street NW will be transferred back to the Third District from Second District.
At present this area is part of Police Service Area (PSA) 208. The most notable part about these new boundaries is that it would split the 17th Street commercial corridor between two districts and two PSAs.
The Third District meeting is Thursday, June 9 at 7 pm. Location is 1620 V Street NW. New police district and Police Service Area boundaries will be presented to the public, according to MPD Assistant Chief of Police Diane Groomes. “We want all to come out to the 3D CAC meeting tomorrow night to see the changes… 3D will be having changes to their boundaries to balance out the workload,” said Groomes.
According to Assistant Police Chief Diane Groomes, a chunk of Police Service Area (PSA) 208 will go back to the Third District. There will likely be an additional PSA in the Dupont-Logan area as well.
