Borderstan Public Safety Meeting & Yet Another MPD 2D Leadership Change

If you live along 15th Street at the Logan / Dupont Circle line, the next Borderstan public safety meeting is this Thursday, November 13, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church at the northeast corner of 15th and R Streets NW.

This is a follow up to the first Borderstan meeting on August 6 — meeting postings here and here. Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans and MPD representatives will attend, including Assistant Chief Diane Groomes.

Borderstan is split between two MPD districts and two PSAs:
West Borderstan (west of 15th Street NW): Second District and PSA 208
East Borderstan (east of 15th Street NW): Third District and PSA 307

In addition, Borderstan reports that MPD's Second District, which includes Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Chevy Chase, Cleveland Park, Palisades and Spring Valley, and was recently expanded to include Dupont Circle, has a new acting commander, Matthew Klein. DCist also reports on the "switcheroo." Klein will be the third Second District Commander in a few short months.
