Many residents may not be aware that within the city's seven main police districts are smaller domains known as Police Service Areas
, and that PSA 106
, part of MPD's 1st District
, covers all of Near Southeast/Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard along with some areas north of the freeway.
The PSA has had monthly public meetings for many years now on Saturday mornings, but it has been decided that attendance by not only residents but representatives of other agencies would be better if the meetings were held on weeknights. A make-up meeting for December is being held on Wednesday, Jan. 6, at 7 pm at the Capper Seniors Building at 900 5th St., SE, then the meetings are expected to be on the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month going forward.
You can go to the meetings with concerns, or with questions about particular incidents, or ideas, or anything else having to do with crime and "order maintenance."
Also, if you haven't joined the MPD-1D mailing list
, that's another location to keep up with crime reports or ask questions of 1D's commander Jeff Brown.
