Good evening,

Today the Metropolitan Police Department unveiled that we have added a Sector Concept to each district.  The sector concept will not replace the Patrol Service Areas (PSA) that are currently in place.  The PSA’s will become part of each sector.   The Fifth District will have (3) three sectors with the (7) seven PSA’s.   I am very pleased with this concept and feel that it will better serve the residents of our community.   The sector concept will increase manager accountability as each sector will have a Captain assigned to it.   The borders of three PSA’s, PSA 501, 505 and PSA 506 have been changed.   I feel these changes will increase service to each of the effected neighborhoods as the old borders stretched our resources.  I have attached a FAQ sheet to this e-mail.  If you have additional questions please feel free to contact myself and/or members of your team.    

The new borders are as follows:

PSA 501
+gains the NOMA and Union Market areas.

PSA 505
-loses the Ivy City neighborhood which will go to PSA 506.

PSA 506
-loses the NOMA and Union Market areas.
+gains the Ivy City neighborhood.

Sector 1.   PSA 501 and 502

MPD Unveils Sector Concept Citywide

(Washington, DC)  – Over the past several months, the Metropolitan Police Department has been working to broaden its use of a sector model. This model brings additional management accountability to districts and allows for faster dispatch, lower response times, and improved service to the community.

Under this model, each patrol district is divided into three sectors with a sector being an informal grouping of Police Service Areas (PSAs).  Each sector will be led by a captain, who will report directly to their respective district commanders. Sector captains will be responsible for their assigned areas 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Lieutenants will share responsibility for overseeing the PSAs and personnel in their sector on any given shift. Please note that officers and sergeants will continue to be assigned to their current PSAs under the sector model.

The sector concept does not eliminate PSAs. The PSA boundaries within 1D, 2D, 3D, 4D, and 7D remain the same. The Fifth and Sixth Districts will have a small modification to their PSA boundaries within their District. These changes to 5D and 6D PSA boundaries are in line with MPD’s patrol strategy and are intended to support more efficient dispatching operations and decisions. Please see below for the modification changes. These modifications are scheduled to go into effect the first week of January 2017.

The sector model will not disrupt or alter MPD operations and activities, or services to the community in any way. This is an internal organizational change intended to better support operations. Additionally, as eligibility for retirement in the command ranks continues to grow, the sector concept affords the Chief of Police another opportunity to develop managers and assess Sector Captains for command staff positions.

*Please see the attachment for a comparison of the Fifth and Sixth Districts before and after the sector concept modification.
