As of January 1, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) introduced new District and Police Service Area (PSA) boundaries (New Police Service Areas Take Effect January 1). Over the next few weeks, we’ll be doing brief overviews of the boundaries of the new PSAs and how to contact the police personnel in charge of each area, starting with PSA 305. (See Google map.)

The new PSA 305 is a slimmed down version of the old PSA 305, now essentially covering just the U Street corridor and surrounding streets (view Google map or map at DC Citizen Atlas).

Previously, PSA 305 included more of the area surrounding Howard University, which has been moved into newly created PSA 306. The southern boundary of PSA 305 is S Street NW and the northern boundary is Florida Avenue, NW/Barry Place, NW. East to West, PSA 305 extends from 7th Street, NW/Georgia Avenue, NW to 14th Street, NW. Aside from a small section in the northeastern part of the PSA, all of PSA 305 falls within the Borderstan coverage area.
