Meet the Police of 302 / Columbia Heights Tomorrow @ 7PM

I have attended the last several PSA (Police Service Area) 302 meetings, most have only 1 attendee -me. Last month, it was a better meeting/discussion as @ 10 people from my building attended as well.

I have lived in DC for 20+ years and it wasn’t until a few years ago I found out there were community-police meetings. There is no mass blast from the MPD that residents could sign up for or an easy way on their website to find out about said meetings. I am hoping this forum post might serve as a “MASS BLAST” & publicize the PSA meeting for the Columbia Heights/302 neighborhood that is for tomorrow night @ 7PM.

More attendees garner more attention to specific neighborhood issues – I have included the PSA 302 map [Basically, 16th St. NW – east to Park Place NW; and Monroe St. NW – south to Harvard St. NW]

Third District Station
1620 V Street, NW
Washington, DC 20009

Thanks and I hope I see some of my fellow Popvillers there. 🙂

Helicopter flying around Capitol Hill last night?

Does anyone know what that low-flying and loud helicopter was about last night? At around 11:00ish this helicopter kept circling around the Hill with huge (and bright!) search lights. Just curious to see if anyone knows anything!

How many DC teens carry guns?

Anyone know a good place to research statistics related to minors caught with firearms?

Increasing car break ins on Mozart Pl in Adams Morgan

My car window was broken last week and I’ve noticed increasing numbers of broken car windows on Mozart Place and Euclid in Adams Morgan. I’m taking pictures to document the increase and I encourage others to do the same and post them here. If you have thoughts for how to deal with this rise in vandalism and theft please post here.

Street Harassment

Hi Popville,

This weekend I heard about something that happened to a friend of mine a few weeks back. He was exiting Coffy Cafe (14th street and Park rd) at about 8 pm on a Friday night and trying to catch a cab when three teenagers blocked his way and started asking him for bus fare (he couldn’t quite make out what they said but thinks it was something about a bus fare). When he ignored them and tried to move on, they kept blocking him and verbally threatening him. My friend then turned back and went back inside the coffee shop, and they followed him inside. He ordered a cab on his phone from inside the coffee shop, and the teens hanged around the coffee shop for a few minutes and left.

I’m not really sure what the goal was here on their part, and I know harassment happens, but what surprised/alarmed me personally about this is that it happened in the middle of a busy street. I’m new to DC and I try to be aware of my surroundings and avoid secluded areas at night but I’m wondering what to do if harassed like this in the middle of a busy place.

Pedestrians Beware!

This morning a man riding his bicycle on the sidewalk near Pleasant Pops intentionally aimed for and tried to hit me even though I made multiple attempts to get out of his way. I didn’t think fast enough to take a picture or call 911. Pedestrians use caution when walking on the sidewalks!
