Aggravated by Neighborhood Crime? Attend your PSA Meeting.
Does everyone know that there is a monthly forum to meet and talk with the police officers and supervisors assigned to your neighborhood? MPD holds Police Service Area (PSA) meetings pretty much monthly in city neighborhoods. Unfortunately, crime is a major topic of discussion in PoPville. But, I’ve noticed that these meetings are not well-advertised, unless you’re on the community listserve. Many meetings are not well-attended, possibly because people don’t know they exist.
In light of the recent homicide on the 500 block of Crittenden, NW, discussions of increased crew activity, and an increase in property crimes, it’s important for us to be engaged with our community and MPD. We need to show MPD that, not only will we gripe online about crime, we will show up in person to discuss what’s being done to stop the crime. Please seriously consider coming to the meetings. In my experience, they do not last too long and showing up shows that we care.
