On January 1, 2012, MPD revised the boundaries of the District's police districts and also updated the boundaries of each police service area (PSA). The East Shaw area is located in the Third District (3D) and most of the East Shaw neighborhood is located in PSA 308. Each PSA generally has its own lieutenant, captain, and police officers assigned to it and can be helpful in responding to your concerns, answering questions, and meeting with community groups.
View the PSA 308 boundaries and contact information for the PSA 308 lietenant and captain (and general 3D contact information) at http://bit.ly/yO3KCW. View all of the 3D PSA boundaries and PSA contact information at http://1.usa.gov/xmorki.
Other ways to get involved and get information include the following:
PSA Meetings: Each PSA holds monthly meetings on neighborhood crime and public safety issues. According to the MPD website, the PSA 308 meeting is held every second Thursday of the month, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Third District Headquarters at 1620 V Street, NW.
