Reminder: August Dupont/Kal Public Safety/PSA 208 Meeting

On Tuesday August 18th, citizens and business representatives will meet from 7 to 8:00pm at MPD 3D station (1620 V St.). (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. If you can’t make it, please convey your issue to someone who will be attending.

National Night Out - Tuesday 8/4 6p in Dupont Circle - Reminder

Subject: [DupontForum] National Night Out - Tuesday 8/4 6p in Dupont Circle

This coming Tuesday, August 4th, will be National Night - observed in 49 states and the District of Columbia.* This is the annual event that the police stage for the community, and it's our opportunity to spend a little time to meet and get to know the officers who patrol our neighborhood.

This year, our neighborhood event will be held IN DUPONT CIRCLE from 6pm to 8pm. We'll be grillin' some burgers and hot dogs donated by Circa, and serving up soda and water...all free. Not only will the officers from our PSA be attending, but we'll also be hosting folks from the mounted unit of the Park Police (complete with horse). And we wouldn't be surprised if the Chief of Police and Mayor stop by.

The past two years, the event was held on Hopkins Place and 17th Street and both were great successes. Both years, residents were able to alert police to ongoing problems, and solutions (including an arrest in the Hopkins case) were quickly forthcoming.

So consider this your formal invitation to stop by the Circle between 6pm and 8pm this coming Tuesday, August 4th for National Night Out.

*Texas observes it in October, which has more to do with the hot and miserable weather down there than with the politics of secession or where our President was actually born or anything like that. Texans seem to lack the gritty toughness that we have to deal with heat.
