CRIME: Parks Not Safe, Says D.C. Delegate

WTOP is reporting that D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) says that the area's national parks and parkways are not as safe as they once were because of budget cuts. Along with more homelessness, there is increased speeding on Rock Creek Parkway. Unlike most cities, the majority of D.C.'s parks and forest preserves police enforcement is overseen by the U.S. Park Police, not by city authorities.

Last week's City Paper also had an article, "Frankenforts" about the unsafe nature of the forgotten and downtrodden Fort Circle parks near Fort Totten.
