MPD 5D Commander, Andy Solberg sends out the following message:
As many residents leave for summer vacations, the Fifth District will be instituting a program where you can call or email us to let us know if you will be away from DC during a vacation.
If you provide us the dates you will be away and provide us a local contact person, we will have our officers ride by your home when possible to keep an eye on things.
This is not a guarantee of any sort, but we will compile a list of homes and try to check on them as often as we can.
Please email your PSA lieutenant, or me, or call 698-0111 during business hours, with your request.
That’s freaking awesome. Is it realistic to think that this could be a citywide service?
