Beat the Streets
Beat the Streets is a day of celebration and togetherness to dispel violence, improve community relations and encourage the citizens to live in peace and aspire to enhance their quality of lives. This event will engage the community on a pro-social level that allows local police officers and partnering agencies to interact in a welcoming environment. The expectation is for the residents from various communities throughout the District of Columbia to mingle with one another and celebrate the event in safety. In 2013, there will be six "Beat the Street" days.
