    THIS is the kind of information we need from our PD. Actionable !

    With the rising crime here and the dwindling quantity of cops on the DMPD (the same folks who usually hunt down the local bad guys and take them off our streets), it is up to US, you and me and all of our neighbors, to ward of the criminals.

    Info-empowered individual citizens at the right place and time acting as the eyes/ears for the few cops we have. Information such as this is what will help us in our endeavors to do so.
