Breaking news: I saw two police officers walking the beat!
This is phenomenal news, great news, unbelievable news, ok it's not that great but it is pretty cool. On perhaps the coldest night of this winter I chatted with two police officers who were walking down Upshur Street, past Domku. My jaw dropped, I stuttered a bit partially from the cold, partially from shock. I asked them "hey are you guys part of the new foot patrols?". A resounding Yes was the answer. So credit to Chief select Lanier. She is a woman of her word. I really do think this is great news for the residents of Petworth and DC in general. Bravo, and keep up the good work. I win the bet though. I believe I was the first one to spot a foot patrol. Let's hope it becomes a regular thing.
