Thanks to the boys and girls in blue

Miss V would like to give a big thanks to the hardworking men and women of MPD. As a result of the rise in crime, MPD has increased patrols of Fairfax Village as well as other parts of Hillcrest. I received the following information specific to Fairfax Village from the TACT UNIT (aka jump outs) this morning.
The past 2 weeks the TACT UNIT has focused on these recent complaints. As a result numerous arrests were made:

-3900 block of Penn Ave SE we arrested a subject for Carrying a Pistol without a License (CPWL). Recovered was a 9MM handgun and 16 rounds of ammunition.

-3900 block of Southern Avenue SE we arrested a subject selling crack cocaine along the block.

-Southern Avenue SE and Suitland Road SE we arrested a subject selling crack cocaine.

-Penn Ave SE and Southern Ave SE we arrested a subject with a substantial amount of Marijuana (close to a pound).

-2035 38th Street SE we arrested the subject responsible for the drug sales out of this specific building.


  1. Yes thank you thank you. Thanks for making our streets just alittle bit safer. Keep up the good work. We appreciate all that you do.

  2. This is great to hear (read) - hopefully, we will hear (read) more about these arresting events until the activities themselves come to a stop in our community!

    Just last night, while waiting for the bus, I saw three officers pull over a car on 38th St and immediately put the two occupants in handcuffs.
