More Cops Walking the Beat sign now

We respectfully request that members of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia regularly walk the streets of the neighborhoods to which they are assigned. We understand there are tradeoffs inherent in the allocation of personnel in this manner. We believe the community-building and preventive benefits of having officers walking the beat are worth these compromises. We also recognize having officers walk the beat may require additional officers and additional funds. We believe this is worthy of such shifts in priorities. Please respect the wishes of your constituents.
