Reminder - Dupont Circle/Kal Public Safety (PSA 208) Meeting

1)     Meeting - Dupont Public Safety Meeting/PSA 208 - Tuesday, Dec 16th at 7pm at the 3rd District Metropolitan Police Dept Headquarters at 1620 V Street. (Held on the 3rd Tuesdays for Dupont and Kalorama-Sheridan issues and still in the 3D building even though our police work out of 2D.) Our community depends on good communications to and from our police. This is a roundtable meeting where we problem-solve. Bring an issue – no matter how minor.


2)     Rooftop Burglary Trends - Since the beginning of December, the second district has experienced six (6) burglaries that involved the suspect gaining access to a residence through the rooftop.  All of these burglaries are residential and have occurred in PSA 208. These have been on the quieter residential streets. Check your roof and skylight security.


1.      Rooftop Burglary Trends

1.      All burglaries in PSA 208

3)     Robbery – As is typical this time of year, gun robberies in the streets are up. Some have been resulted in citizens’ getting beaten. Be aware of your surroundings. (Don’t walk on quiet streets with head phones on…)
