Jan Dupont/Kal Public Safety/PSA 208 Meeting - Reminder

On Tuesday Jan 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.


Some potential topics:

1.     Sting operation resulting in the arrest of Wayne Bridgeforth and the filing of Community Impact Statements regarding same.

2.     Potential Burglaries potentially involving Darrell Barber. Several people have identified him from photos as the person knocking on their doors. We now have a resident who has seen and photographed him trying to get into rear doors. He’s been convicted of burglary many times on similar charges. MPD is on it.

3.       Change in Commanders. We regret the loss of Commander Mat Klein to a downtown assignment. He is highly regarded by all.  Michael Reese has taken over. His bio/introduction is here.
