Please see the messge below from MPD about notifying them when you go on vacation. I wish I had this information before I went on mine!
All: As many residents leave for summer vacations, the Fifth District will be instituting a program where you can call or email us to let us know if you will be away from DC during a vacation. If you provide us the dates you will be away and provide us a local contact person, we will have our officers ride by your home when possible to keep an eye on things. This is not a guarantee of any sort, but we will compile a list of homes and try to check on them as often as we can. Please email your PSA lieutenant, or me, or call 698-0111 during business hours, with your request. Obviously, we tell you not to send us this information on any group-wide email.
Your PSA lieutenants are:
501 Lts. Ron Wright (mailto:Ronald.WrightJr@dc.gov)%20and Roger Roch (firstname.lastname@example.org)
502 Lt. Ed Bernat (email@example.com)
503 Lt. Corinne Hughes (firstname.lastname@example.org)
504 Lts. Patricia Janifer (Patricia.Janifer@dc.gov) and Tim Haselden (email@example.com)
505 Lt. Gary Durand. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
