A Question From A Reader

“I just moved to Petworth and I love it. However I am concerned about
the crime. I’ve noticed while walking my dog that there are signs
posted on some of the trees on the 1300 block of Sheppard stating that
if more than 2 people are found loitering they can be arrested. It’s
some sort of community-based initiative to make that block a “drug
free” zone. Does anyone know how to spearhead such an effort? Does
there have to be prior incidents to establish an area as a problem
before an initiative like this can be done?”

Anyone familiar with this?
