A few weeks ago I met one of the MPD officers who patrols our neighborhood. I only met him briefly. So it was much to my surprise when I was walking down New Hampshire last weekend when I saw about 6 cops and one perp handcuffed on the sidewalk. I thought it would be a good idea to walk by the scene very briskly. Well the MPD officer who I met a few weeks ago was there and he calls out hello. It was really funny. Right in the middle of what looked like a very serious bust, the officer greets my like it is perfectly normal day. Well, much respect to those guys. If we get more new officers patrolling the beat like him we will certainly be moving in the right direction of community policing.
