Over the past nine months, MPD engaged in an evaluation of our boundaries as established in 2012, taking into account current workload, anticipated population growth, economic development, and community needs. On January 10, 2019, the MPD launched police boundary changes based on this evaluation. Get more details, including maps, on the Police Boundary Update page.


About the Police Districts, Sectors and PSAs

There are seven police districts in Washington, DC, and each police district is divided into three sectors with a sector being an informal grouping of Police Service Areas (PSAs).  There are a total of 57 PSAs in the District of Columbia.

Every resident lives in a Police Service Area (PSA), and every PSA has a team of police officers and officials assigned to it. Residents should get to know their PSA team members and learn how to work with them to fight crime and disorder in their neighborhoods. Each police district has between seven and nine PSAs.

Each Police Service Area generally holds meetings once a month. To learn more about the meeting time and location in your PSA, please contact your Community Outreach Coordinator. To reach a coordinator, choose your police district from the list below. The coordinators are included as part of each district's roster.
