New Police Service Area changes begin Jan 1st

In June a letter was sent out saying police districts would change and was posted on the blog. http://rosedalecitizen.blogspot.com/2011/06/why-are-police-boundaries-changing.html

The changes will become official at the start of the new year and the overall information about the changes can be found here.

To summarize, the changes to the police service areas are to even out the work/crime load among groups of officers and to better utilize police resources. This does not change what wards we live in, or parking zones. We may see new officers on the streets and different lieutenants.

Kingman Park, Rosedale and the Carver Lansgton neighborhoods will now be served by the same crew of police officers. On the dc.gov community calendar no meeting date or location had been posted yet for the new PSA 507 in the month of January and when that information is received, the blog will be updated.  

Keep in mind: Now with less daylight and holiday mischief please be careful having packages delivered to your house and placed on the porch. Also, on December 4th Elaine Coleman was killed, no suspect has been identified. More info here.
