Police Districts and Police Service Areas

Map of Police Districts in DCAbout the Police Districts, Sectors and PSAs

There are seven police districts in Washington, DC, and each police district is divided into three sectors, which are groups of Police Service Areas (PSAs). There are a total of 57 PSAs in the District of Columbia. Each police district has between seven and nine PSAs.

Every resident lives in a PSA, and every PSA has a team of assigned police officers and officials. Through these meetings, residents have the opportunity to get to know their PSA team members and learn how to work with them to address crime and disorder in their neighborhoods.

Each PSA holds regular meetings open to our residents, business community, and other stakeholders. We encourage our communities to take advantage of the opportunity not only to share feedback and ideas with MPD during these sessions, but also learn how we can all contribute to a safer public safety ecosystem.
