Public Safety Meeting Reminder - Neighborhood Network Launch


Dupont Public Safety /PSA 208 Meeting is, tonight, Tuesday October 16st at 7pm for Dupont and Kalorama-Sheridan issues at the 1620 V Street 3D Station (yes, even though we are now in 2D,we’re still holding the meetings in the same place). (It’s always held on the 3rd Tuesdays.)


1)      Samantha Nolan will be advising us to on how to start up a neighborhood watch. I rarely send emails “High Importance” but getting people to show up to learn about being a Block Captains is something that could mean huge differences to our neighborhood in crime defense and in the event of an emergency. Please give an hour of your time to find out what we can do with a Neighborhood Network. We have about 55 blocks that we’d like to cover. Please get someone from your block to show up tonight! If you  can’t come or don’t think you’d be a good block captain, please forward this or pick up the phone to get your neighbor there tonight.


2)      There was a stabbing in Dupont Circle itself last week. 2 people who may have been drinking in the park got into an altercation. The injured is in stable condition in the hospital and the suspect was arrested by MPD moments afterward. The Current will have a story Wednesday.


3)      Off-topic: the Dupont House Tour still needs a few more volunteers for Sunday’s event. Please contact me if you can volunteer from 2:30 to 5. (You get a tour ticket and we have great volunteer party afterwards).


4)      Next month the PSA/Public Safety meeting may do a Walk Around. We’ll walk part of the neighborhood with the police. We can get the detailed knowledge about a few areas that that are problems. By seeing a problem then and there, they may be able to understand better how to attack it.


Our community depends on good communications to and from our police. Email me or our lieutenants to submit items for discussion if you can’t make tonight. And if you want to be a block captain but can’t make it.
