WASHINGTON D.C. — The Metropolitan Police Department said Wednesday that it will take the drastic step of restricting access to some 5th District neighborhoods to curb the unchecked violence that has resulted in 14 killings in that area since April.
Under the Neighborhood Safety Zones program, motorists will be required to show identification and explain to police their reason for being in the area before entering designated two- to three-block zones that have experienced high crime.
