    Folks of Borderstan,

    While the statistics are looking good, we can ALWAYS initiate changes to improve.

    The officers of PSA 307 are a great group of dedicated team members. Please find a recent example of a pending commendation for a gun recovery that took place last Sunday, February 8, 2009. You be the judge.

    “On February 8, 2009 at 1515 hours, Officer Vazquez while working the evening tour as scout car #3071, Officer Caron, MPO Wilson, Probationary Officer Glynn were dispatched to the 1300 block of S Street, N.W.(Note: exact location has been removed for victim’s privacy) for an assault in progress. The dispatcher gave a lookout for a Hispanic male medium complex, wearing a black jacket with a silver stripe possibly armed with a gun. Upon arrival on the scene, the four were advised by a witness that a suspect fitting the description was exiting the location thru the rear door and was carrying a gun.

    MPO Wilson, Probationary Officer Glynn and Officer Vazquez began a foot chase while having the subject in site. The subject proceeded to run towards 13th Street and made a right turn traveling southbound with MPO Wilson in close pursuit. Officer Vazquez went through the south alley on the 1300 Block of Riggs Street, when the suspect came running towards him with a silver object in his right hand. When Officer Vazquez ordered the subject to drop the object, he turned around and ran back towards 13th Street. Officer Vazquez observed the suspect make a swing motion while getting in between two parked cars.

    MPO Wilson and Probationary Officer Glynn were able to apprehend the subject in the corner of the alley at 13th Street. The subject did not have the silver object in hand at the time of arrest.

    With Officer Caron now on scene, the silver color object which was later identified as a black handled 9mm chrome handgun was located underneath a Lexus parked 10 feet from where the subject was arrested. The handgun was recovered with one round of ammunition in the chamber and three in the magazine and one additional round was found on the floor in the house by crime scene search.

    A search incident to arrest revealed, the suspect had a red bag containing a white powder substance in a red small zip lock bag in his right front pocket, as well as, a clear bag containing the same substance in a clear small zip lock bag. Officer Garrett field tested the substance for cocaine base and the result was positive. Additionally, the suspect was carrying $593.00 dollars in U.S. Currency that was taken for civil forfeiture.

    The above mentioned officers were able to quickly close this case, take venomous drugs and an illegal firearm off the streets and make it a safer place for the citizens of the District of Columbia.

    I feel that his is a perfect example of determination and teamwork by members of Metropolitan Police Department working together to combat crime in our neighborhoods.”

    This is what our officers of PSA 307 are doing day in and day out in your community. We are moving in the right direction and with your help and suggestions…we can get there.

    Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

    As always, we are open to your comments.

    Sincerely,

    Sergeant David J. Terestre
    PSA 307
