Worthwhile reminder: Get involved

MPD's Assistant Chief Diane Groomes recently shared the information below (emphasis added) as a follow-up to Chief Lanier's email Addressing Violent Crime in Washington, DC.
Good afternoon all ....sorry it took me a while to compile this information but I want to send further information on how the Patrol Districts combat violent crime such as robberies, felony assaults, shootings and also citizen complaints that are brought to the attention of the commander...this is in addition to the support that the Chief of Police has provided via specialized units and the patrol support teams.....

Each district has an established Crime Suppression Team composed of ten to sixteen uniformed officers that address specific issues that the commander focuses on .... Since June these units have been able to

Make 788 arrests

Recovered 79 GUNS

Executed 43 search warrants

Recovered 23 ATVS

Seized/Recovered hundreds of grams of Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin and PCP

I would like to remind all that each District holds a monthly Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) meeting at their district and at these meetings it is your opportunity to discuss your concerns directly with your Commander and their team.... Also each district has PSA Lieutenants that hold regular community/PSA meetings that can address the concerns in a particular PSA and hold problem solving sessions with those in attendance by involving other agencies and entities for long term issues such as nuisance properties and systemic disorder and crime problems

The schedules and Points of Contact for each are available on our WEBSITE ... also you may inquire through the listserve any additional information you may have

Thank you
