Friday Question of the Day

Today’s Friday question of the day comes from the forum section. I selected it as FQOTD because I’ve been quite curious about this as well. We once spoke about community policing a long time ago but it has sort of fallen of the radar. So Park Road Guy asks:

“Have you seen your friendly neighborhood police officer on foot? Or are they still cruising up and down the street, flashing their cherries to get through red lights? Have you ever spoken to a police officer on duty about your concerns? Do you even know your foot patrol officer’s name? Does your block even have a foot patrol officer?”

I used to see some on Upshur Street and Georgia Ave. from time to time but I haven’t seen any in quite a long time.  I don’t expect to see foot patrols on every small block we live on but it would be nice to see some on the main streets.  Are there any regulars on 14th St.?  U St.?  11th St.? Etc.
