Faith & Blue Community Peace Walk, October 10, 2021

Thanks to all those who came out and supported the Faith & Blue Peace Walk & Cookout.  It was another successful event with the faith community, citizens, associations, and police partnering together to keep our communities safe and secure.
A special thanks to Corporals Blackwell & Rannacher for orchestrating this event—planning and partnering with Fort Washington Baptist Church, Carla Cash in Council Member Monique Anderson Walker’s Office, and our communities to unite communities, organizations, associations, and police in one safe place as we continue building bridges and breaking biases as we forge forward together.

The car "Door Checkers" have been active in District. Do NOT leave anything visible in your car even if it's an empty bag. A door checker may check to see if something in the bag is valuable. Even a locked car will not stop the checker if an item looks interesting.

Vacant Homes and Homes for Sale:

  • Police are putting together a county-wide list of homes that are vulnerable to break-ins such as vacant and those listed for sale. Homes on the list will be given extra attention during police patrols.
  • Please provide addresses of homes that fit this criteria directly to Cpl. Rannacher at his email address above.

  • A driver with 91 speed-camera and red-light tickets hit and killed a 3-month-old baby girl in Brooklyn on Saturday — and no one can understand how a driver with 91 speed-camera and red-light tickets, and multiple license suspensions, was still on the road to hit and kill a 3-month-old baby girl in Brooklyn.
  • The mayor doesn’t even know, telling reporters on Tuesday (three days after he was first asked about it) that he’ll have to get back to them with details of why his administration has failed to implement the only existing law designed to hold the most reckless drivers accountable by requiring them to take an in-person safety class or have their car seized.
