DC MPD ran its first All Hands on Deck operation of the summer this past weekend. AHODs typically run from 6 am on Friday to 6 am on Sunday.

MPD says, “During AHOD, all available sworn MPD personnel will be on patrol throughout the District emphasizing community policing, focused law enforcement and community outreach. This will include increased foot beats, homicide detectives following up with victims, and recruits passing out specific crime related information.” There were 10 AHODs in 2009.

    I wonder if they are also stopping cyclists going the wrong way in the contra-flow lane. I saw a cyclist (going the wrong way) almost hit two pedestrians in the crosswalk this weekend. The cyclist then actually yelled at the pedestrians for not paying attention.
