MPD has be working through its realignment and redistricting process for the city of the last number couple of months.
As part of this process the PSAs in and around Brookland will be changing a bit. MPD’s 5th District has been changed from a total of five PSAs to a total seven PSAs in the 5th District.
This should be a good thing in general by having have smaller districts to manage.
Boundary Realignment Study:
Below is the listing of Calls for Service and Crime Statistics for the current and realigned Fifth District PSA districts
At a glance the major changes for Brookland and surrounding areas are PSA 502 with now be PSA 503 with a small sliver of what was previously 502 east of 20th Street and North of Rhode Island Avenue will now be in the new expanded PSA 504. PSA 504 now will be a combination of the previous PSA 504 and PSA 503. Lastly the former PSA 501 covering Edgewood and Eckington is now split into PSA 501 and PSA 502.
The biggest change to Brookland residents looks to be North of Michigan Avenue and West of 10th Street and South of Taylor Streets have been moved to the 4th District.
Those that were previously in PSA 501 and PSA 502 below Taylor Street and West of 10th Street will now be included as part the 4th District. This includes The Catholic University of America and the 10th Street shopping center that contained the Cardinal’s Nest.
This change seem a bit weird with this little piece of Brookland west of 10th and south of Taylor will now be part of the 4th District. So Streets like Perry Place will now be moved out of 5D.Redistricting MPD 5D Redistricting 4D
