DC is gearing up for the 30th annual celebration of “America’s Night Out Against Crime” on August 6th. In addition to the numerous activities at the kickoff event, communities across DC – in all seven police districts – scheduled National Night Out (NNO) events during the late afternoon and evening hours.
Each year the Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVTCID) sponsors a cookout (and typically a bike ride) with MPD to support National Night Out. This would seem like a prime opportunity for Triangle residents to get face time with MPD to discuss their displeasure with the recent escalation of illegal camping, public intoxication/urination, drug use, etc at the park at 2nd/Mass and H Streets NW. As the flyer above states, the event is Tuesday August 6th at 6pm at Golden Rule Plaza (1050 New Jersey Ave NW).
