H Street Entertainment District Reimburseable Detail MPD deal reached

At last night's PSA 102 Meeting ABRA(Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration)Director Fred Moosally, MPD, ANC6A, H Street Main Street, H Street Establishment Owners, and residents discussed a Reimbursable Detail of police and have scheduled implementation of that plan to start this weekend.

As a result of the partnership, police will be patrolling H Street from 11th through 15th every weekend night. This is one of several ideas proposed and implemented with the help of businesses to improve public safety and increase police presence in the area. The PSA 102 Neighborhood Public Safety Committee continues to seek additional police to patrol the communities served by PSA 102, but the agreement should go a long way toward addressing any safety concerns along the main entertainment district cooridor. Kudos to the business owners on those blocks, including Joe Englert, and to the PSA and ANC folks who helped make this happen. Reimburseable details have been implemented to great success in Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and other areas in recent years.
