With MPD redistricting, Police Service Area 208 lost territory to PSA 301, but picked up a bit of 307. (DC Citizen Atlas)

As of January 1, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) introduced new District and Police Service Area (PSA) boundaries (see New Police Service Areas Take Effect January 1). In recent weeks, we’ve done brief overviews of the boundaries of the new PSAs and how to contact the police personnel in charge of each area. We previously covered PSA 305, PSA 301 and PSA 307.

This week, we take a look at PSA 208 — see the Google map or the map at the DC Citizen Atlas. PSA 208 decreased in size substantially with the boundary changes. Previously, PSA 208 was a “super-PSA,” but these larger PSAs have now been eliminated. As we noted before, much of the northern part of the old PSA 208 is now part of PSA 301.

PSA 208’s first community meeting of 2012 will be held Tuesday, February 21 at 7 pm at the MPD office at 1369-A Connecticut Avenue NW (the entrance is on the Massachusetts Avenue NW side of the SunTrust Bank building, just off Dupont Circle).

208 Boundaries

The southern border of PSA 208 is now M Street NW stretching east to west from 14th Street NW to 23rd Street NW. Moving north, PSA 208 goes up 23rd Street NW and then onto Rock Creek Parkway and wraps around the parkway until reaching Connecticut Avenue NW. The northern boundary of the PSA goes down Connecticut Avenue NW, then up Florida Avenue NW, and back down 18th Street NW to Q Street NW. The northern boundary follows Q Street NW from 18th Street NW over to 14th Street NW, which serves as the eastern boundary (view Google map or map at DC Citizen Atlas).

Only the parts of PSA 208 surrounding Dupont Circle and Scott Circle fall within the Borderstan coverage area.

MPD, PSA 307, Logan Circle, DC Citizen Atlas

From Cody Telep. Follow him on Twitter @codywt, email him at [email protected].

As of January 1, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) introduced new District and Police Service Area (PSA) boundaries (see 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. We previously covered PSA 305 and PSA 301.

This week, we take a look at PSA 307 — see the Google map or the map at the DC Citizen Atlas. PSA 307 changed only slightly as part of realignment and continues to cover much of the area surrounding Logan Circle.

East to west, the new PSA 307 goes from 9th Street NW to 14th Street NW. PSA 307 has a northern boundary of S Street NW and a southern boundary of Massachusetts Avenue NW from 9th Street to where Massachusetts Avenue intersects with L Street NW at about 11th Street NW. The southern boundary then follows L Street NW until 14th Street NW (view Google map or map at DC Citizen Atlas).

Almost all of PSA 307 falls within Borderstan’s coverage areas, with the exception of a small portion in the southwestern part of the PSA that falls below Massachusetts Avenue NW. Prior to realignment, PSA 307 extended west to 15th Street NW instead of 14th Street NW. That area is now part of PSA 301 and PSA 208 (which we will be profiling next week).

PSA 307s Contacts

  • Lt. Jeffrey Carroll is the new PSA Lieutenant for 307. He previously served as the PSA Lieutenant for 308, which covers the area surrounding the Convention Center. He can be reached by phone at 202-673-7357 (office) or 202-437-8198 (cell), or by email at [email protected].
  • PSA 307 is the only Third District PSA in the Borderstan coverage area that Captain Charles Morris oversees. He also supervises three other PSAs (302, 304 and 306) that are north and east of Borderstan’s coverage area. He can be reached by phone at 202-671-6777 (office) or 202-316-4911 (cell), or by email at [email protected].
  • As we mentioned before, Commander Jacob Kishter remains the commander for the Third District. Commander Kishter can be reached by phone at 202-671-6600 (office) or 202-528-8612 (cell), or by email at [email protected].

As a reminder, residents will have an opportunity to meet the new PSA management team at a meet and greet in February (we’ll post information on the meeting as soon as it’s available).

UPDATE: The first PSA 307 Community Meeting of 2012 will be held tonight (February 1) from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel in Thomas Circle.

MPD, PSA 301, Borderstan, DC Citizen Atlas

The new PSA 301 incorporates parts of three PSAs: 208, 305 and 307. It runs from Florida Avenue south to Q Street, and from 14th to 18th Streets NW. (DC Citizen Atlas)

From Cody Telep. Follow him on Twitter @codywt, email him at [email protected].

As of January 1, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) introduced new District and Police Service Area (PSA) boundaries (see 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. Last week we covered PSA 305 (see Closer Look at PSA 305′s New Boundaries, Personnel). This week, we take a look at PSA 301 (see Google map).

After realignment, PSA 301 is now part of Borderstan. Previously, PSA 301 was in the northwestern part of the Third District, in an area that shifted to the Fourth District as part of the boundary changes.

The new PSA 301 has a southern boundary of Q Street NW and a northern boundary of Florida Avenue NW. East to west, PSA 301 goes from 14th Street NW to 18th Street NW (view Google map or map at DC Citizen Atlas). The Third District Station at 1620 V Street NW is now within PSA 301.

With these new boundaries, all of PSA 301 falls within Borderstan’s coverage areas. Look for the inclusion of PSA 301 data in our stories about crime in Borderstan in 2012.

Much of the new PSA 301 was previously part of PSA 208 (and before September 2007 this area was PSA 306–so yes, in the past five years, much of this area has gone from the Third District to the Second District and now back to the Third District again).

PSA 301 Contacts

  • Lt. Vanessa Moore is the new PSA Lieutenant for 301. She previously served as the PSA Lieutenant for 307, which covers the Logan area southeast of PSA 301. She can be reached by phone at 202-673-7404 (office) or 202-553-9247 (cell), or by email at [email protected].
  • PSA 301 is one of the four PSAs in the Third District that Captain Andre Wright is now overseeing (PSA 305 is another). Captain Wright can be reached by phone at 202-671-6777 (office) or 202-587-3762 (cell), or by email at [email protected].
  • As we mentioned last week, Commander Jacob Kishter continues to be the commander for the Third District. Commander Kishter can be reached by phone at 202-671-6600 (office) or 202-528-8612 (cell), or by email at [email protected].

As a reminder, all PSA community meetings have been cancelled for January, but residents will have an opportunity to meet the new PSA management team at a meet and greet in February (we’ll post information on the meeting as soon as it’s available).
