Captain Wachter, Captain Mackie and the Executive Staff at the 108 Precinct are aware of the propensity for drag racing (as well as noise from revving engines, which is a separate and distinct condition from drag racing and which requires different resources to address, and which will also be addressed in the coming weeks) in this area and are aware that this is a perennial condition. The 104 and 108 Precinct Traffic Teams will liaise with each other over the coming months to address this problem.
Members of the community are reminded to call 911 for emergencies and 311 for non-emergencies so that these incidents are appropriately documented and dispatched to members of the service on patrol.
Please note both Precincts are also aware of additional locations in and around both Precincts where these drag racers may frequent. Those locations will also be met with enforcement.
